Nathan MacKinnon vs. Charles Hamelin: Who's faster?

Ever wonder who would win in a race between one of the fastest skaters in the NHL and an Olympic champion? Consider that in this instance, it's a blue-line to blue-line sprint.

Check out this video of Nathan MacKinnon of the Colorado Avalanche taking on Charles Hamelin, a three-time Olympic gold medallist in short track speed skating.

OK, if the race had of been a standard Olympic distance, the result probably would have been different. But it's still a neat challenge, nonetheless.
