NASHVILLE – The Nashville Predators fans wanted one more shot, and they got it.
Shea Weber won his second straight Hardest Shot competition with a blistering speed of 108.1 mph. The winning attempt was just under his 108.5 mph shot at last year’s Skills Competition in Columbus.
As the Predators fans gave their captain a rousing ovation following his winning shot, they began to chant “One more shot!” hoping to see Weber break Zdeno Chara’s record of 108.8 mph set in 2012. He was given an extra attempt but couldn't make history.
Meanwhile, Aaron Ekblad finished in sixth place and tried to channel the power of Kevin Spacey by changing into the “Spacey in Space” sweatshirt before his two attempts. It failed to work as he didn’t break 93.4 mph on either of his shots.
The man of the night, John Scott, received a very warm ovation before his attempts, but the People’s All-Star wasn't a challenger to Weber.
“It was a lot of fun,” Weber said. “We had some big guys with some big shots this year, so I didn’t know what to expect. But I definitely had a lot of fun up there. I could tell the crowd was definitely into it as well and that definitely helped.”
Aaron Ekblad, Florida Panthers / 93.4 MPH
