Another year, another Hardest Shot title for Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara. The 6-9 Chara won the event for the fourth straight year, setting a new NHL record with a 105.9 miles-per-hour shot, beating his old mark of 105.6. Bruins rookie Tyler Seguin also participated in the competition, topping out with a 97.1 mph shot.
