I was just at the Hockey HOF this past weekend- visiting Buffalo. Made the ride up to Toronto to visit the hall.
Went to get my shot power tested and i was very suprised at my results. They unfortunately didnt allow slapshots because too many sticks had been broken of late.
the choices of stick were "Salming"- which is a discontinued line much like the mission whole sticks. very nice feel and whip to them. i went 3 times for a total of 15 shots (all wrist shots). my high was 71 mph, with an average of about 67 mph. most shots were upper 60s. the operator told me that 71 mph was top 5 hardest shots hes ever seen and the hardest that month.
he had seen a player from the ECHL shoot an 83 mph wrister!! and also said that sid the kid averaged around 65 mph.
I can't remember his name but he was about 6' 220 lb 35 years old and a telephone company worker in New Hampshire. I remember him in a vicious stick fight in a pickup game at UMass Boston between Jamaica Plain guys and guys from the North Shore.
I remeber I snuck into a room when I was in 6th grade with fake ice, a net and a shot clocker and found a stick and puck in there. It was right handed and I am a left handed shot. Anyway I got up to 43 mph! Haha thats the last time I was clocked in although I must say when ever I play I usually have one of the harder shots. I would be very interested to know exactly. I better get to the HHOF!
