Hockey Hit Of The Year Candidate

Scott Fletcher of the Everblades had one of the biggest hits in any hockey league that we have seen this year on Mike Embach of the Chicago Express.  The hit was huge, clean, and sent Embach’s helmet and dignity flying through the air.

Fletcher told Naples News

“I saw my defense partner and I’ve always told him, ‘I’ve always thrown big hits in the neutral zone so if you see him coming across fill the void in the back end.'” I saw two guys and he was cutting across and it’s almost like his partner kinda blindsided him a little bit and I just came out of nowhere and caught him. It was a good clean hit. I don’t ever want to hurt anyone, I always want to play the game hard and play it the right way. I hope he’s OK and there’s no concussion or anything like that because I’m not that type of player, I’m not a dirty guy so I just hope he bounces back.”
