Weber defends his title
Montreal Canadiens defenseman Shea Weber won the Oscar Mayer NHL Hardest Shot competition for the third straight season with a shot of 102.8 mph.
Weber earned a bonus point for the hardest shot to move the Atlantic Division into a head-to-head tie with the Metropolitan Division with four points each. The hardest shot competition served as the tie-breaker, so the Atlantic Division advanced to face the Pacific Division, which won the head-to-head competition against the Central Division, 6-4.
Weber won the event, beating the 97.8 speed of Washington Capital Alex Ovechkin in his head-to-head match and the 101.7 mph shot of Patrik Laine of the Winnipeg Jets for the overall title. Laine was the only other player to top 100 mph. Weber did not come close to the record of 108.8 mph set by Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara.
