And now, he’s put the entire hockey world on notice once again with his hard shot.

His slap shot clocked in at 109.2 miles per hour during in the AHL Skills Competition at Toyota Arena in Ontario, California. The feat broke Zdeno Chara’s NHL record of 108.8 MPH set in 2012.

Frk, who now plays in the Los Angeles Kings organization, has scored 20 goals with 30 points with the Ontario Reign. While with the Griffins, he scored the game winning goal in 2017 to capture the Calder Cup.
