Here at the Hip Check Preservation Society, we’re proud to curate the best blades-over-brains tilt-a-whirl hits from around the world.
On the (head over) heels of this Jason Demers hip check from last week comes this beauty from Dynamo Moscow defenseman Andrei Mironov, who hip checked Simon Hjalmarsson of CSKA in a game over the weekend. He gets low, nails his opponent right on the hip and sends Hjalmarsson flat on his back.
We haven't seen anyone flip like that in Russia who wasn't being interrogated by the KGB...
We at the HCPS applaud another player attempting to keep the dying art of the perfectly executed hip check alive for another game.
