Today, the Montreal Canadiens' famous skills competition took place, and fans were treated to a spectacular display during the hardest shot event.

We knew Arber Xhekaj had a powerful shot, but based on his performance this afternoon, we underestimated him.

Indeed, the 23-year-old defenseman came incredibly close to breaking Zdeno Chara's all-time record.

He hit 107.2 MPH, while the hardest shot recorded by Chara was 108.8 MPH in 2012. He was even close to surpassing Shea Weber's impressive mark of 108.1 MPH in 2015.


Incredible!
