No Zdeno Chara. No Shea Weber. That means we likely won’t be seeing any attempts reach well above 100 mph as we did a couple of years ago when “108 mph” flashed a few times.

This is arguably the most-anticipated event of the night, mainly because of Weber and Chara, but maybe we’ll have a surprise this year. This event has a long history of eliciting plenty of Wow‘s from the crowd, thanks to the Als Iafrate and MacInnis for hitting triple digits and claiming eight of the first nine competitions.

Here’s a look back at some of the best moments from the Hardest Shot competition.

The Tampa Bay Lightning, who are celebrating their 25th season, and the city of Tampa will host the 2018 Honda NHL All-Star Weekend. The League’s midseason showcase will take place at AMALIE Arena and will include the 2018 GEICO NHL All-Star Skills Competition on Saturday, Jan. 27 (7 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC, SN, TVAS) and 2018 Honda NHL All-Star Game on Sunday, Jan. 28 (3:30 p.m. ET, NBC, CBC, SN, TVAS).
