Shawn Joseph Heins (born December 24, 1973 in Eganville, Ontario) is a professional ice hockey player who is currently an unrestricted free agent. He most recently played for Nationalliga A side HC Fribourg-Gottéron in Switzerland. He has played for the San Jose Sharks, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Atlanta Thrashers.

Playing career[edit]

Heins' style of play is that of an offensive defenceman and powerplay specialist. His slapshot, though not well known, has been measured at speeds well over 100 miles per hour. Heins held the record for the hardest recorded shot of all time with the puck going 106 miles per hour, until December 3, 2006.[citation needed] The record was surpassed by Chad Kilger of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

On several occasions, Heins has been a member of Team Canada at the Spengler Cup.[citation needed] In the final stages of the 2012–13 season with Fribourg, Heins suffered a concussion and was unable to re-sign with the club, still suffering post-concussion symptoms months later.[1]
