Zdeno Chara Biography
Zdeno Chra was born March 18, 1977 and is a Slovak professional ice hockey defenseman who currently serves as captain of the Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League (NHL). He won the James Norris Memorial Trophy while playing for the Bruins in 200809. At 6 ft 9 in (2.06 m), he is the tallest player ever to play in the NHL. He is also the second European-born and trained captain to win the Stanley Cup and the first born and trained in a country beyond the Iron Curtain.
Chara is widely considered to have the hardest slapshot in the NHL, and quite possibly the world the KHL claims the world record belongs to Alex Riazantsev at 114.1 mph, but due to differences in the mechanics of the KHL competition, the NHL does not recognize this figure. Chara has won the hardest shot competition at the All-Star Game Skills Competition five times in a row 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, and 2012 (Note: there was no NHL All-Star Game in 2010, due to NHL player participation in the 2010 Winter Olympics, and also in 2013 as a result of the 2012-13 NHL lockout).
Chara played his 1,000th career NHL game on March 24, 2012 against the Los Angeles Kings, a 42 victory for the Bruins.
During the 2012 NHL lockout, Chara agreed to play for HC Lev Praha of the Kontinental Hockey League until the NHL resumed. He returned from the lockout to post another solid season, with 7 goals and 12 assists in the 48 game season. His point totals were down due to some of Boston's struggles down the stretch, particularly on the power play, where Chara only posted 1 assist all season despite plenty of ice time in man advantage situations. However, he remained a rock on defense, and a key contributor for the Bruins squad. In the playoffs, he was physically dominant and played a key role in leading his team to the 2013 Stanley Cup Finals.
