I'd like to know how hard the shots actually were. I believe Phil Axtell broke 100mph last year in Sioux City.
I can't believe Dustin Gazley didn't win or place in the fastest skater. Maybe he didn't participate, but he has got to be one of the fastest skaters in the league.
Good for DiGirolamo to make some noise in front of his home crowd.
