A lighter puck will leave your stick at a faster speed (you're applying the same force to less mass, so there will be more acceleration), but will also be slowed down more by air resistance after it leaves you stick. In general, at normal distances, I definitely think my shot is faster with the light street hockey pucks, but if you were to measure the speed on some ridiculous full rink slap shot, I could see the heavier puck being faster at the end due to being slowed down significantly less by air resistance.
