BOBBY HULL OWN THE HARDEST SHOT 118.3 mph

BOBBY HULL OWN FOR THE HARDEST SHOT, NO CHARA .

The current world record is held by DENNIS KULYASH of KHL's Avanfard Omsk ,
who slapped a puck at the 2011 KHL All Stars game skills competition in Russia
with a speed of 177.58 km/h ( 110.3 mph ).

Well not really as NHL Stars Game in 1965 were timed and BOBBY HULL had an 118.3 MPH
slapshot .

HAWKS PLAYER OWN THE BEST RECORD: BOBBY HULL : 118.3 MPH .


GO HAWKS GO

I'd bet Hull's wrist shot was well over 90 MPH. And that's with a wooden stick.

Dennis Hull could shoot it as well, just not nearly as accurately as his brother.

Oh Dennis was mighty accurate, he could pick the corner of any organist's loft.

3 posts, 2 threads. Interesting.

Who knows how accurate the gun was back then, but Bobby could bring it like no other during that time.

Slight correction as well: Kulyash's record was broken this year by Alexander Ryazantsev at the 2012 KHL All-Star festivities with a shot at 114.127mph. This wouldn't change your point of Hull's being quicker, but should be noted.

I really wouldn't let much credibility to some of these numbers. Who knows what equipment they were using and how accurate. Chara may have registered 125mph back then. Who knows. They could all bring it.

Actually, even with today's technology, the laser gun will register low shots as always faster than the higher ones. Sometimes misses the reading for high shots altogether.

Very interesting read from Popular Mechanics, February 1968. Begins at page 110-114, continues onto page 204, and ends on page 210. After looking at the lists on pg 114, I am dubious about the shot speed measurements.

http://books.google.com/books?id=jdQ...page&q&f=false

Goes into great detail about Hull, as well as other players. A guy named Lloyd Percival apparently did some research on hockey players back then. Quotes the 118.3, which I gather Percival measured himself, as well as others' slap shot and wrist shot speeds. I'm sure his methods for testing shot speed were inaccurate.
