Number 10. Devante Smith-Pelly vs. Patrick Wiercioch

Devante Smith-Pelly is a winger for the Montreal Canadiens and a former Duck. In a game against the Ottawa Senators, Devante Smith-Pelly lined up Patrick Wiercioch at center ice. After the hit, it was clear that the Sens defenseman was shaken up after his head hit the ice pretty hard. He left the game and did not return.

Hockey is the best sport in the world. It is fast, exciting, and has some of the hardest hits in any sport. 

Hockey is a very physical game – there are always fights almost every single game. There are also a lot of dangerous hits every game. I will be listing my top 10 most dangerous hits in hockey history:

3. Trevor Gillies (NYI) on Eric Boulton (NJ). This hit was deemed as a “targeting the head” hit and Gillies was given a 10-game suspension for it

This hit is so scary that I had to watch it ten times before I could even post the link. This was a huge, mean hit that resulted in a broken leg for Trent McCleary. Don’t try this at home kids!

Dmitri Tertyshny was selected in the first round of the 1994 NHL Entry Draft by the Philadelphia Flyers. Dmitri’s career ended abruptly when he collided with an opponent resulting in death by drowning. This video shows how Dmitri lost his life.

Todd Bertuzzi and Steve Moore?s infamous incident happened on March 8th, 2004. Bertuzzi sucker-punched Moore from behind after the Canucks were upset by the Avalanche in previous games. As a result of this incident, Bertuzzi received a 17-month suspension (the longest suspension issued to a single player in NHL history) while Moore never returned to hockey due to injury.

The following video shows one of the most tragic incidents not just in hockey history, but in sports history as well. Russian superstar Alexander Yakushev scored on an incredible backhand shot during an intense gold medal game against Team Canada during the 1972 Summit Series. This goal ended up winning Russia its first ever hockey gold medal and was incredibly controversial because fans felt that it

NHL players are always looking for a way to gain an edge on the ice. They know that being stronger or faster than their opponent is a key advantage. If a player can figure out how to be stronger and faster, than they have a good chance of separating themselves from the pack.

Professional hockey players train almost year round to stay in top physical condition. During the off-season most players lift weights to improve their strength. But during the season it is important not to gain too much weight. When you are playing this game at such a high level every ounce of body weight counts, because it means having to carry more muscle mass up and down the ice.

There are many different styles of training that players use to stay in shape while they are playing. Some players will do CrossFit workouts with very little rest between sets and exercises. Others will do more traditional split routines where they focus on one muscle group per session, but still try to do their workouts as quickly as possible with minimal rest time between sets and exercises. The main goal for these guys is not necessarily gaining muscle mass, because when you are carrying around so much extra weight it can affect your speed negatively on the ice.”I’ve seen some big guys who aren’t as fast as smaller guys,”
