They may be considered pretty dirty, even when executed properly, but there's no denying that a solid hip check is pretty entertaining to watch (unless it happen to your star player). Now, we're not taking about a low bridge hit, like the dirty maneuver performed by Dmitry Kulikov on Tyler Seguin a little while back, but we're talking about a perfectly lined up hip check that causes an awesome impact and sets the tone for the rest of the game.
Now, this video has more modern hip checks, and doesn't include greats like Terry O'Reilly or Larry Robinson who were considered elite hip checkers, but there's still a lot to love about the hip checks shown.
Take a look and enjoy!
