After using an Easton EQ50 to win the 2011 Hardest Shot competition at the NHL All-Star weekend, Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara decided to switch things up this time around, choosing the Warrior Diablo as his weapon of choice.

Coming in as a 4-time defending champion, Chara successfully made it 5 straight victories by setting a new NHL record with a 108.8 mph blast on his second attempt. Shea Weber (using his trusty Easton S19) came in second, just as he did in 2011.
