Last week, we presented players' records in the first part of the regular season. Today, KHL.ru presents the results in three categories: hardest shot, single-game distance, and top speed.
Last week, the author of the hardest shot was Admiral's defenseman Alexander Osipov. During the Sunday's game against SKA, the defenseman hit 164.5 km/h (102.22 mph). Before Osipov's laser, which, however, missed the net, the month's record belonged to Lokomotiv's Jakub Nakladal with 163.6 km/h (101.66 mph). However, this is not a season-high: Traktor's Sergei Tereshchenko fired the puck at a blistering 168.9 km/h (104.97 mph) on Sep. 15 against Kunlun Red Star.
Last week, the single-game distance record was an affair between Avangard and Dinamo Minsk players. Before the first Euro Hockey Tour pause, Drew Shore, who already left Belarus, set a record with 6,876 meters in a game. However, on Nov. 16, at the Minsk Arena, Vyacheslav Voynov set a new record which will be hardly beaten in this regular season. Logging 36 minutes and 11 seconds on the ice, with a single shift of 3 minutes and 5 seconds, he ran an incredible 7,965 meters.
After the EHT pause, Dinamo Riga played four games in a week, and American defenseman Ben Marshall set a new top-speed record with 38.5 km/h. However, if taking the whole month, Marshall's sprint is just the fifth-best result. November's leader is his teammate, Carter Ashton, with 39.0 km/h. So far, the season-high belongs to yet another Dinamo Riga's forward, Mikelis Redlihs, with 39.8 km/h.
