Shea Weber did Nashville proud in this weekend's NHL All-Star Skills Competition, placing second in the Hardest Shot event after finishing second the last time it was held, in Montreal during the 2008-9 season. Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara won for the fourth consecutive time, setting a new record in the process.

In the opening round, Weber fired shots of 104.6 and 104.8 miles per hour to beat Chara, setting up the opportunity to take the title. In the finals, however, they two best shooters from each squad faced off, which gave the 6'9" Bruin a second chance.

Weber opened with a 103.0, before Chara answered back with a record-setting 105.9 blast that drew a standing ovation from the crowd in Raleigh, North Carolina. In Weber's final attempt, he fired a 103.4, leaving Chara to wrap things up with a 105.0 to close the event. (Complete Results from NHL.com)
