What is the average speed of a hockey puck?

Art Ross designed the modern hockey puck in 1940. Since they became standardized, hockey pucks are able to travel at average speeds exceeding 75 mph during a game. Slap shots, however, have a much higher average speed. Bobby Hull, Dennis Kulyash and Zdeno Chara all have hit slap shots that top out over 100 mph.
