    The great Bobby Hull's reputation precedes him when it comes to his legendary hockey slapshot.The NHL superstar, widely known as the "Golden Jet," raised the bar for the future of hockey during his career half a century ago. In his time on the ice, before face masks and curved sticks, his rifle of a shot was a rare and dangerous weapon. Today, a killer slapshot is a the kingpin of every hockey player's artillery.

    In 2012, Zdeno Chara of the Boston Bruins fired a puck at 108.8 mph, the NHL's fastest recorded slapshot. The world record for the hardest shot in the game is currently held by the KHL's Alexander Ryazantsev, clocked at 113.2 mph. Legend has it that Hull's were even faster than that, his hardest estimated to have been a 119.5 mph rocket. These guys are tough acts to follow, but the newest batch of future hockey stars are training hard to compete with these epic puck speeds.

    With many having taken their very first steps on the ice, the next generation of "Golden Jets" are winding up their sticks as early as the peewees! As hockey players continue to grow better, faster, and stronger, so will their slapshots - the question is: can your nets take the heat?
