Black & White - Martin Frk

Martin Frk's journey in pro hockey

Martin Frk's journey in professional hockey has taken him all over the world.

Martin Frk has the hardest shot ever measured. Harder than any professional hockey player to ever play the game.

Let that sink in.

Though most of the hockey world just came to that realization as Frk won the Hardest Shot competition at the AHL All-Star Classic, his teammates, and more specifically, the goaltenders, have had a front row seat for some time now.

 "This is a shot like I've never really seen before," Goaltender Cal Petersen said of his teammates' release.

Jonathan Quick added that it was the heaviest shot he's ever seen as well.

"And these are guys that have seen a lot of rubber," Ontario Reign Head Coach Mike Stothers said.

Petersen has jokingly told Frk to take it easy on him during practice so he doesn't wind up leaving the ice with a broken arm.

"I definitely hurt a lot of goalies," Frk said apologetically. "But I didn't ask them to be goalie."

Though the Czech Republic native has natural goal scoring abilities, he continues to try to find ways to improve every time he hits the ice.

"Every day, I give everything I can to make sure I can still get better," Frk said. 

And every day, his teammates are finding a way to stay clear of his shooting lane.
