I wish I could have found a colour version of this gem, but alas, no deal. You don’t even have to enjoy hockey to get a kick out of this. See, earlier this week, Pittsburgh Penguin, Brooks Orpik laid out Jeff Skinner of the Carolina Hurricanes. The hit was debatable, as well as the Cane’s decision to allow him to return to the ice after just coming back from a serious concussion.
But that’s not the issue here. In fact there is no issue. Just one particular photo that an uncredited photographer snagged that appeared in Calgary today. Too convenient. Hit the jump to see what I mean.
