Jake Virtanen of the Vancouver Canucks was promptly ejected Tuesday night after an insanely dirty hit to the blindside of Roman Polak of the San Jose Sharks.

Polak, who has his own history of fighting, was about to enter the neutral zone after making a pass when Virtanen nearly decapitated him with a hit when Polak wasn’t paying attention. (SLIDESHOW: This NHL Player’s Girlfriend Is A Sexy Model Almost Too Hot To Handle)

The refs rushed in to defuse the situation before Sharks players had a chance to take retribution on Virtanen as Polak was on the ice in obvious pain. (VIDEO: Justin Abdelkader Drops The Gloves After MASSIVE Hit On Teammate)
