Hitting speed

It's for a physics-related movie that I'd like to shoot... the movie is about a hockey player who, despite his playmaking ability, is a very poor hitter and he would like to improve his physical game. He is a rather fast player and turns to a physicist to devise a plan to make him deliver bigger hits.

I know that the hardest hits have both high kinetic energy and momentum. But I have a question: how fast can a hit be? (in ft/s; I'll convert into m/s later)
