The NHL is finally back, and that’s great news for hockey fans everywhere.

Hockey is truly a man’s game. It’s all about who is the toughest, who has the most grit and who is willing to die on that ice if it means the team can win a championship. Hockey players are also some of the most humble and down to earth athletes on the planet.

They don’t care about the flash like so many in the NFL and NBA do. Hockey players just care about throwing on the pads and winning.

However, hockey players also love throwing around some massive hits. A player is practically begging to get lit up if they come across the middle of the ice and aren’t paying attention.

Check out some of the biggest hits in the history of the sport.

I don’t know what it is, but something just feels right now that we have hockey back. We’ve got football on the weekends and hockey is back in season. What a great time to be alive.
