Video: New Jersey Devils Jon Merrill was slow getting up from this hit

Published Add your comment

New Jersey Devils Defenseman Jon Merrill was on the receiving end of stern body check by the Detroit Red Wings Forward Justin Abdelkader on Friday night.

With the Devils up 3-2 in the second period, the puck was very close to the New Jersey goal but Merrill began to clear the danger when he was wiped out.

Lifting the puck to the point that it left the rink, Merrill can be forgiven for panicking when the big forward came rushing right at him.

Needless to say, he was slow getting up.
