Whats With The Back-Bodychecks?


Recommended Posts

Seriously, the players off the top of my head who i see pulling it off quite consistently are Subban, Kronwall and Doughty, what's with players leading their backs into checks?

I'm not necessarily for or against it.... leaning more for against just due to the fact if the other person braces or something goes awry you're basically going spine first into someone and things do happen.

It's an interesting way to hit, to say the least. It could be fairly dangerous for the player who intiates the hit, as something could go wrong and he could suffer a back problem. Going back-first into the hit with all that momentum isn't necessarily a wise thing to do. It does, however, prevent any chance of a headshot, and the force from the hit will be distributed over a larger area.
