Vancouver Canucks prospect flips player with massive hit

Next Story

While most of the National Hockey League resumes the debate about fighting, there can be no question that everyone loves seeing a nice, clean hit.

That's exactly what Vancouver Canucks prospect Darren Archibald delivered for us this week in the AHL for the Utica Comets.

Utica were playing against Lake Erie Monsters, who are affiliates of Colorado Avalanche, in which Archibald sized up Karl Stollery.

When Stollery tried to set up a defensive zone breakout he took a full hit from Archibald and subsequently did a 108 degree flip in the air before rolling another 360 after landing on the ice.

But it seems that the biggest danger in this tackle was posed to the tackler as the video shows Stollery's blade striking the face of Archibald.

Luckily the prospect was wearing a visor and shock off the collision.

Lake Erie went on the win the game 3-2.
