Kilger has hardest shot ever


December 03, 2006
TORONTO (CP) -- Chad Kilger set a new hockey record Sunday for the hardest shot at the Leafs skills contest. His time of 106.6 MPH bested a minor league time by Shawn Heins (106.0 MPH) and the NHL-record of 105.2 MPH by Al Iafrate.
I hope he starts to use that shot more often. He could start striking fear into goalies, Al MacInnis style.

Unfortunately, I don't think he will, as after visitng 6 different teams, he just doesn't seem to be able to max out his potential.

yeah .. prolly easier for him to set stuff up and focus during a skills competition. Some guys need the adrenaline already pumping in a game to do something like that.

sheesh 107 is just killer. :eek:

Yeah. He's always had a pretty hard shot actually (though I never knew it was that hard), it's just that he almost never uses it.

It's quite a shame really.

Yea I agree, that's why I respected Macinnes?(Sp?) so much because every single chance he got he used his shot and it was successfull most of the time. Maybe now he will use it.:(

I hope this continues to build his confidence. He had a career high is points last year and now knowing his has the hardest shot in the league and playing on a winning team hoepfully he continues to put it all together.

Now big Al Iafrate set the NHL mark with a wood stick, was Kilger's shot synergy aided? Wonder where it would've ranked if done with an old Sherwood. personally I don't like the new sticks, I find them too unreliable and too expensive for the handful of amazing shots they produce. Guys like Jarrett Stoll don't even practice their point shots anymore because after 5 shots his sticks don't have any strength left.
