Zdeno Chara set a new NHL Skills Competition record tonight with a behemoth 108.8 miles per hour slap shot.
Is there really anything else that needs to be said?
Chara kept blasting bomb after bomb tonight. His slap shot is so lethal in game day action that he shattered a bone in Ryan Callahan's ankle last year.
Chara is the tallest man in the NHL and is also very scary to look at from a goaltender's point of view. There is a good reason why Chara doesn't unleash his full force slapper unless it is in a competition or in game setting.
