Zdeno Chara hits 108.8 m.p.h. on radar

OTTAWA – As usual, Zdeno Chara has won the hardest shot contest. With his second whack, Chara gunned a slap shot timed at 108.8 m.p.h. to make a mockery of his old record. Last year, Chara hit 105.9 m.p.h.

“I was kind of surprised myself,” Chara said of the result. “Before every All-Star hardest shot, I try to do my best and improve. It worked.”

Shea Weber connected with a 106.0-m.p.h. shot to claim second place once again.
