These are in no particular order…because I’m feeling lazy, and it’s more difficult to look up hits on youtube than you might think.
1. Ryan Wilson hits Adam Burish. (Though unfortunately Burish’s name is misspelled by the poster.)
2. Ryan Wilson gives a little hit, almost like those reinforced bumper cars. And then Gabriel Landeskog slams Blake Comeau.
3. Ryan O’Byrne knocks over Zdeno Chara. I could probably ram into Chara with a golf cart, and he wouldn’t flinch, so clearly O’Byrne deserves stick taps for massive effort.
4. Gabriel Landeskog’s open-ice hit on Calgary Flames forward Blake Comeau
5. Erik Johnson performs a dramatic hit on Dana Tyrell. If EJ does more of this next year, it will help the Avs a lot.
6. One of Shane O’Brien’s solid hits throughout the season.
7. Jan Hejda, and his strong hip checking abilities, showcased.
8. Oh Wilson. You have the best hits. Here, he lines up Tyler Seguin for about forty feet, before finally slamming into him.
Also, I found out on twitter that Matt Hunwick got married last night- congratulations to Hunwick and his bride! More congratulations are in order for David Jones and his wife, as they are expecting a baby boy in September. (Giguere has mentioned that his wife is pregnant too, though he hasn’t given further details.)
