I live very close to Kitchener and I'm sure some of you have heard or seen this already. Terrible hit.

nothing special. This is exactly what those players "known for their hits" are doing each and every game. I mean watch more of Perry, Kunitz, especially, Clutterbuck hits. I'm not saying this is ok, I'm just saying we are all "waiting" for the first death to occur as a result of such "hard hitting". And then everybody will chose a person to hate and blame... just like it happened to Bert.
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

I guess I'm not seeing why it's considered a dirty hit....this isn't some sissy sport like Soccer or anything.

I mean it absolutely sucks that the kid got hurt and no one wish that on anyone, but it looked pretty clean to me.

Injuries happen in contact sports. It's a drawback sometimes.

Hope the kid is ok.

Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

It's not even "hard hitting". Try charging from the blue line, screening yourself with the goalie and hitting with your elbows up.

That wasn't a dirty hit. You DON'T turn your back on another player bearing down on you at the last second.

No way you can react when you are inches away from the guy.

yes. this is exactly what Perry, Kunitz, Clutterbuch, and a bunch of others are doing... and people tend to call it "hard hitting". smile.gif Still wondering why this is penalized only when there is a serious injury.

Yes, because it's easy to see around your goalie when the guy is flying in from the far right >.>
Regardless of which way he was hit, it was boarding, charging and an elbow to the head.

He looked twice and saw him coming before he even got to the puck. So yes he knew the guy was coming.

He was right next to the boards, it wasn't a charge (arguably), and his elbow was tucked in.

Good hit, players need to stop turning their back. No way a guy can let up when you turn your back half a second before the guy hits you.

Should of probably been a charging though, that's it.

I agree with Doc.

That was a follow through. His elbow seemed to be tucked in when he made contact.

Of course not, because you chose to show a still of where his elbow was located AFTER contact was made.

That is useless. You could argue he crosschecked him in the head based on that same logic.

It's not a dirty hit. It would have been fine if the guy didn't turn at the last second. The player that made the hit stopped skating at the bottom of the circle and came in with his elbows down.

So he fully untucked his elbow before the kids helmet made a full rotation in mid air? Don't be afraid to compile.

First of all, I hope the kid will be okay.

Second of all, dude saw the train coming...twice! You can't spin like that to turn your back on somebody and not expect to get hit. He wasn't looking where he should have been. The guys elbows were tucked and he had his guy lined up for a check. That's the name of the game here, folks.

It sucks the kid went down like that, but I don't see anything deserving of a penalty.
Uhh...you might want to duck!

The guy broke his stride when he lined him up, so I would say charging would even be iffy. The kid saw him coming before he went behind the net to get the puck. He had the sense to protect and reverse the puck, he just didn't have the sense to protect himself. In fact, he did just the opposite by turning his back.

works every time

Unfortunately, Doc is right...the kid saw him, and tried to spin away from the check he KNEW was coming...turned his back, and you could see his head hit the stanchion. Players , especially D, try to spin away from checks all the time. This time he didn't quite make it, and it made the hit worse. That being said, I hope he recovers quickly.

Oh I agree, I probably wouldn't have called charging either. But in a Junior league I wouldn't be surprised if it was called after the outcome.
