Megan Bozek, National Team and Buffalo Beauts defender set a record for the hardest shot in the NWHL with a recorded slapper of 88 miles per hour at the first NWHL All-Star Game held in Buffalo, N.Y., which league founder and Commissioner Dani Rylan called her favorite part of the game.
“It was really exciting; the players were very creative in the skills competition and I think it will be pretty memorable for the fans and the players,” said Rylan.
“I was actually thrilled with Hardest Shot; it was pretty cool. It’s something that we’re trying to do. We’re here to set records this year to beat next year and it’s exciting to record another first.”

And then Bozek challenged Zdeno Chara and Shea Weber to a Hardest Shot Competition. May the best player win.
Bozek was chosen by Emily Pfazler, Buffalo Beauts and NWHL All-Star captain, to guard the netminder for Team Pfalzer during the inaugural All-Star Game. She is a top-level defenseman for the Beauts during the regular season, and apparently someone they should look to to take even more slapshots. It won’t be easy for goalies to throw themselves in front of that howitzer, especially now that they know exactly how quickly that will be coming at them.
