Ducks forwards Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry were both on hand for all three local competitions. Getzlaf will be a special guest during Sunday's awards ceremony in New York.

The Ace's Got Skills competition is open to boys and girls ages 9-12. The competition tests skill level in five different categories: Fastest Skater, Shooting Accuracy, Hardest Shot, Shoot Out and Goaltending.

The first rounds of the national competition will be held Friday and Saturday with all invitees competing in their respective events.

The top two participants from each Conference's individual skill competitions will advance to the Finals on Sunday. There will be four finalists (two per conference) in each skill at each age/level. Just as with the local/regional competitions, players will only compete against other players their age and level.

The Sports Illustrated Kids Top Skills event Finals will also be held on Sunday. Following the skills finals all players will take part in an age/level specific scrimmage with the Eastern Conference (Boston Bruins, New York Islanders, New York Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals) taking on the Western Conference (Anaheim Ducks, Columbus Blue Jackets, Dallas Stars, Nashville Predators and Phoenix Coyotes). The Closing Ceremony and Awards Presentation will wrap up the weekend.

Sunday's Finals, SI Kids Top Skills Competition, Eastern Conference vs. Western Conference scrimmage and the Awards Ceremony will be broadcast live via the Ace's Got Skills website at www.AcesGotSkills.com through a partnership with Webcatter Broadcasting, Inc.  

Last season both of the SI Kids Top Skills National Winners came out of the Anaheim market - Max Becker (Squirt) and TJ Sneath (Pee Wee).  This year Max won the Pee Wee Travel Hardest Shot competition at the Westminster Ice Arena but missed qualifying for Nationals by one mile per hour.  TJ won the Pee Wee Travel Accuracy competition by hitting seven targets in eight shots.  He will be joined at the Nationals by LA Hockey Club teammates Austin Ho (Shootout), Dennis Kravchenko (Hardest Shot, SI Kids Top Skills) and Luke McColgan (Fastest Skater).

The competition and foundation's namesake, Ace Bailey, played 11 seasons in the NHL on five different teams and won two Stanley Cup trophies with the Boston Bruins in 1970 and 1972. After his playing career, he joined the Edmonton Oilers scouting staff before serving as the Director of Pro Scouting for the Los Angeles Kings for seven years. He was killed on September 11, 2001 in the terrorist attacks as he was on board a flight to Los Angeles for the Kings' training camp.
