Video: Weber defends Hardest Shot title with 108.1 mph blast

NASHVILLE — Hometown favorite Shea Weber successfully defended his Hardest Shot title in today’s NHL All-Star Skills Competition.

Weber’s second attempt hit 108.1 mph on the radar gun. He won last year’s event in Columbus with a slightly higher speed of 108.5 mph.

The Predators captain was convinced to try “one more time” by the Bridgestone Arena crowd, but his third attempt failed to break Zdeno Chara‘s record of 108.8 mph.

John Scott took on Steven Stamkos in one of the head-to-head matches. The former topped out at a respectable 95.9 mph, but Stamkos won the match with a 103.9 mph blast.
