Mark Marncari breaks "Hardest Shot" record at AHL All-Star Skills Competition
Binghamton, N.Y. - Canadian forward Mark Mancari of the Rochester Americans shattered the American Hockey League record in the "Hardest Shot" event Sunday at the AHL All-Star Skills Competition.
The London, Ont., native - added as a replacement for Clarke MacArthur, who is on recall with the Buffalo Sabres - received a standing ovation from the sellout crowd with a blistering shot that registered 102.8 miles per hour on the radar gun.
"I had no idea I could get one that hard," Mancari said. "I'm in shock right now. I'm pretty excited." Mancari's stick is on its way to the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Wayda go Mark!! Woo Hoo!
