Crazy Head Slash at U16 Tournament

07 August 2014 - 03:10 AM


This took place at the Girls U16 World Selects Invitational in Budapest, Hungary this past weekend. This was a round robin game between West Coast Selects and Spartak (from Moscow, Russia) that WCS ended up winning 2-1. The play happened with about three minutes left when the American player from WCS went down low and came out of the corner to take a shot that the goalie saved. When she started skating away, the defenseman two-hand slashed her to the lower back which is why she's on one knee at the start of the video. As she was getting up, that's when the video starts. The Russian player was thrown out of the tournament and had done the same thing to a Swedish player last year and was not banned. The player that got hit did not play the rest of this game but returned for the remaining four games of the tournament. West Coast Selects went on to beat Spartak again 4-2 in the semifinal and beat Sweden 2-1 in a shootout to win the championship for the third year in a row.
