COLUMBUS, Ohio - Shea Weber shot faster missing the net than any other player did hitting it. Winnipeg Jets Jerseys . When he hit the net, it was even better.The Nashville Predators captain won the Hardest Shot competition at Saturday nights all-star skills competition by clocking in at 108.5 mph. Weber was just short of the record of 108.8 mph set by the Boston Bruins Zdeno Chara at the last all-star weekend in 2012 in Ottawa.You never really know how hard it is until it registers, Weber said. Its different, too. In a game you dont really see that. Guys dont skate right into a puck and take a slap shot. Guys are one-timers or standing still and taking it in different situations.In game situations, players would have to get in the way of that kind of shot.Everybody cringed, said all-star captain Nick Foligno of the host Columbus Blue Jackets, whose team beat Jonathan Toewss 25-19 to win the skills competition. Wouldnt ever want to have to block that.Webers 101.8 mph blast that missed the net and didnt count was better than anyone elses best attempt. Washington Capitals star Alex Ovechkin shot 101.4 twice, while Dustin Byfuglien of the Winnipeg Jets topped out at 97.3.Without Chara in the competition, Weber was the favourite going in. But he considers Chara the king.Hes the guy to beat all the time, hes got the big shot, Weber said. Honestly I was nervous because theres some guys out there that can rip it.Webers previous best was around 106 mph. Hes not sure if hell ever beat Charas record but thinks its possible.I just want to keep getting better every year, Weber said. I think as kids we strive to get better at everything we do. Its no different now. You dont want to get worse. You want to continually get better.Fastest skater: After being traded for him at Fridays all-star draft, Phil Kessel beat Tyler Seguin in their head-to-head heat. With the Toronto Maple Leafs on a six-game losing streak, it was Kessels first win in a while.Youre cold ... Youre trying not to fall and embarrass yourself, right? Kessel said.Rookie Jonathan Drouin of the Tampa Bay Lightning had the fastest time at 13.103 seconds. Sportvisions player tracking technology was used as part of the competition, as it will in Sundays game.Breakaway challenge: Ryan Johansen stole the show by bringing out 7-year-old Cole Vogt, son of Columbus Blue Jackets trainer Mike Vogt, to help him score and by getting teammates to do the Flying V from the Mighty Ducks movies. Jakub Voracek of the Philadelphia Flyers followed that by bringing out 21-year-old Johnny Gaudreau of the Calgary Flames to help him.I think that little kid was bigger than him. Lets be honest, Voracek said of Gaudreau. That was the plan. It was funny.Gaudreau, who wanted to light his stick on fire for the event because he plays for the Flames, was added to the all-star game as an injury replacement. Tyler Johnson of the Tampa Bay Lightning missed the skills competition with a lower-body injury, and will likely be out for Sundays game.Johansen won the breakaway challenge as a result of an online fan vote.Accuracy shooting: Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane needed just five shots to hit all four targets. Hes no Ray Bourque, but Kane won the competition by doing so in 13.529 seconds.Skills challenge relay: Steven Stamkos showed off his absurd ability to hit the net on one-timers from a sharp angle, and goaltenders Jaroslav Halak, Carey Price, Marc-Andre Fleury and Roberto Luongo got to try their hand at shooting and scoring on an empty net in a segment made for the likes of Martin Brodeur, Chris Osgood and Ron Hextall.Shootout: Kessel kept his good weekend going by scoring on Corey Crawford, and former Blue Jackets captain Rick Nash heard the boos from local fans. Nash asked for a trade out of Columbus and is tied for the NHL lead in goals for the Rangers.Thats how its been for the last three years, so I expected it, Nash said. In one ear and out the other. Its an all-star game. Theres nothing I can do about it.---Follow @SWhyno on Twitter Teemu Selanne Jersey . "This doesnt end anything," he said. "Weve got 10-1 in our last 11 games, and were going home in first place. We just have to keep playing the way we are right now. Tyler Myers Jersey . The Rangers centre left early in Game 1 with an upper body injury after being checked by Canadiens defenceman Mike Weaver and has not played since. Brassard told reporters after practice that he was good to go. That brought a smile to the face of Rangers coach Alain Vigneault. http://www.hockeyjetsauthority.com/bobby-hull-jets-jersey-c-14/ . The 23-year-old Neustaedter will move at the end of the season when his contract with Moenchengladbach expires. He signed a four-year deal with Schalke.VANCOUVER -- Carl Robinsons message was clear enough: Respect your opponents, but dont fear them. Even though the Vancouver Whitecaps (5-2-5) will be playing in a hostile environment at PPL Park, the team will carry a swagger into its Major League Soccer road game Saturday against the Philadelphia Union (3-7-5). "No game is easy," Robinson said earlier this week after the Whitecaps practised at the University of British Columbia. "There is no fear on this squad because they are playing well. "We will make them aware of how good Philadelphia are, because they are a good team. They havent picked up the results they probably want recently. .... But my players will never play with fear as long as Im here. Its important they go out and enjoy themselves. If they enjoy themselves they express themselves. If they express themselves, we play with a freedom and I think you can see an excitement in their football." The Whitecaps looked to be enjoying themselves in their final practice before leaving for Philadelphia. Several players engaged in a water fight which ended with English midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker emptying a cooler of ice water on Ghanian midfielder Gershon Koffie. Robinson looked on with a smile. The Whitecaps have earned the right to feel good about themselves. Their record gives them 20 points, good enough for fourth place in the Western Conference. Vancouver is coming off a 4-3 road victory over the Portland Timber last weekend, the first time the Whitecaps have beaten their Cascadia rivals in MLS play. Vancouver is unbeaten in six MLS games (3-0-3). The Whitecaps have scored 14 goals during that span, and only once managed fewer than two in a game. Vancouver also has two wins and a tie in their last three road games. While things are good, they could be better. The Whitecaps were up 4-1 against Portland but had to hold onto the victory. Vancouver has also allowed 11 goals over the last six games. "I think we can go to another level," said Robinson. "We have to tidy up a few things (defensively). We have to make sure we get back to basics on that and we will, without losing our attacking edge." The Union have struggled this season. They sit eighth in the Eastern Conference with 14 points but snapped a two-game losing skid with a 3-0 win over Chivas USA last weekend. Sebastien Le Toux, the French forward who has missed the last two Philadelphia matches with an injury, believes the team can still turn its seasoon around. Nikolaj Ehlers Jersey. "I think its important to stay positive and keep working hard all the time," Le Toux, who could be in the lineup against Vancouver, told the Union website. "We havent had the type of start we were hoping for. "We just need to keep working and get this going in a good direction. We need to work as hard as we possibly can. We just have to find ways to do it on the field. I know we have the guys in here who can do it and we have be determined." One of the Whitecaps enjoying a breakout season is Erik Hurtado. The 23-year-old midfielder/forward scored once against Portland and drew a foul to set up another goal on a penalty kick. He also has scored a goal in the last four of Vancouvers games. Drafted fifth overall in last years MLS SuperDraft, the native of Fredericksburg, Va., struggled during his rookie season. He had speed to burn but sometimes looked like an unguided missile. He also had a heavy second touch on the ball. This year Hurtados play is more directed. Hes able to get open and can feather passes to his teammates. "Im more mature as a player," Hurtado said. "Ive learned in the centre-forward role how to move off the ball, how to get the ball in good places with space to turn, how to play off the defenders back, what runs to make." Whitecaps captain Jay DeMerit said Hurtados game is evolving. "Everyone has seen his raw talent over the last year," said DeMerit. "Now hes staring to rein that in a little bit more. "Hes starting to figure out what hes good at and what he can hurt defenders with. When he was able to figure that out, and control his game a little bit more, hes consistently got better." The game against the Union will be the Whitecaps last before the MLS breaks for the World Cup in Brazil. It will also be Vancouvers third road match in four games. DeMerit expects a physical match. "They are a fairly big team," he said. "You might have to do some set pieces and make sure we are tight there. "Its a long way from home so we have to make sure we are up and ready for it and start the game right. A lot of times in these away games . . . sometimes you start a little flat. I think for us its about making sure that doesnt happen, make sure we are ready from the whistle to do combat in our style of game. When weve been able to do that, home or away, we have seemed to get the right results, so that has to continue."
