One of the best things about hockey is the ruthlessness of the body checks, I know there are rules in place to limit things in the NHL. However, I’m not sure those rules are universal in hockey around the globe. Judging but what I’ve seen in the Supreme Hockey League, which I just learned today exists. They seem to have a less than strict policy towards body checking.
This hit though... 😳

Ooof, that is a bone-crushing body check. I can’t remember the last time I saw bodies bend that way on ice. Not sure your suppose to land face first on the ice. The clip ends before we find out how he gets off the ice, whether he needed help or made it up on his own.
First question you ask someone that lands face first on ice?
