KHL Skills Competition Features New Hardest Shot?

In case you missed it on Puck Daddy today, Zdeno Chara is no longer the world record holder for the hardest shot in hockey. At the Kontinental Hockey League All Star Skills Competition, Denis Kulyash recorded a shot of 110.3 mph. This beat NHL record holder Zdeno Chara's blast of 105.9 mph. The 27 year old Kulyash, who is listed as 6'2 and 205lbs apparently beat the 6'9, 260lbs monster from Slovakia by 4.9 mph.

This is hard to believe because Chara is so much bigger than Kulyash, and because it's the KHL's skills competition. Not to mention that a 4.4mph is a significant increase. The KHL was probably using the same gun the Leafs used when Chad Kilger hit 106.6 mph at their skills competition. The KHL skills competition got even sillier when they had a longest shot competition. This featured players shooting the puck around the boards to see who could shoot it the furthest. Accompanying their shots was a nice sound effect to add some suspense for the fans and Jaromir Jagr - who appeared very excited.


Speaking of hard shots, remember Al Iafrate's skullet? We saw this beauty at 4:33 of the above video.

  6. Why would anyone on their right mind post a stupid and boring story like this. We all know how corrupt they are in the KHL and how they'll do almost anything to get attention. Worst blog ever!

  7. The KHL is a joke, and to the last guy who wrote a comment. Why are you reading this blog if you don't like it. Go clean your room.

  8. Hmmm, I see my comment was removed, guess you'd like to continue with the farce of Chara ever holding a 'world record shot', that's unfortunate you choose to run a blog that way, considering 3 players(Heins 106mph, Kilger 106.6mph, and Souray 106.7mph),4 if you include this KHL fellow have all registered shots harder than the one Chara had this past All Star Game. Unfortunate you like to give out false information, oh well, carry on dishing out the wrong info, at least there are people out there who know the facts.

  9. that's tricky Jay... i wouldnt consider heins, kilger, souray or kulyash offical. radar taken at practices are in the hands of god knows who... the NHL should be the official record in my mind, or chara and kulyash face off... do you think kulyash's shot is that accurate?

  11. I don't see anywhere that it says world record. I see NHL record and that should be done by league officals.
