The players in the National Hockey League have the ability to shoot a puck unbelievably fast. In fact, one player was recently testing his power on his slapshot during practice and actually shot the hockey puck through the boards.
As unbelievable as it sounds, Olympic gold medalist and captain of the Nashville Predators, Shea Weber rocketed a shot through the boards behind the net. Weber’s teammate Seth Jones shared the pictures of the damage on Twitter earlier today:

Weber is known for having a particularly strong slap shot, but to put the puck through the boards is a feat that has likely not been seen in quite a long time.
In nine seasons with the Predators, the defenseman has racked up an impressive 131 goals and 216 assists which compiled 347 points.
You can bet that when the NHL season begins and Weber squares up for his first slapshot of the season, the opposing goalie will have second thoughts on his career choice. Hopefully the padding the goalies wear in the NHL is enough to stop Weber’s slapshot, because clearly the board could not.
