Predators’ Shea Weber Puts Hole In Boards With Powerful Slap Shot (Photo)

Nashville Predators defenseman Shea Weber’s slap shot is one of the most powerful in the NHL.

The last time we saw him unleash his shot during a skills challenge was at the 2012 NHL All-Star Skills Competition, where he finished second to Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara in the Hardest Shot portion of the event with a 106 mph blast.

During a skate with teammates Thursday, Weber shot a puck so hard that he put a hole in the end boards. His teammate Seth Jones shared a picture with the proof.

When the NHL’s best gather for All-Star Weekend in Columbus, Ohio, in January, expect Weber to take aim at Chara’s record of 108 mph.
