Default Hit by Trouba on Dal Colle

So, this is a huge hit that happened earlier tonight.



The announcers are very sure that it's a bad hit. But is it really? Dal Colle has his head down and is looking for the puck in his feet. It's not a charge, it's not interference because the puck's there, and Trouba hits straight through him. The only reason why the head is involved is because he has it down - there's no way to hit the rest of Dal Colle without hitting his head first.

I want this type of hit to happen still. Am I wrong?

You are not wrong. But I think the League still needs to penalize head contact, if for no other reason than optics, and with the hope that it helps to reduce head injuries, which have to be the priority.

The only bad thing about that hit is that he had to fight afterwards. Heads up on the trolley tracks!

So what do you want the rule to be in that situation? Trouba should be required to try and poke the puck?

Head was down for a while. Onus is on Trouba. Ugly, ugly replays around 1min mark of that vid.

Frankly, Dal Colle is just as responsible for this hit as Trouba was. Can't be looking at your feet with the puck at the blue line.

To me it's a perfect hit. That being said the rules are different now.

Dal Colle with his head down share some of the blame. Trouba had enough time to not obliterate him like he did. It looks like the head is the primary point of contact, it should result in a suspension if the league actually cares about the rules.

Trouba jumped. Both feet off the ice. It’ll be a suspension, for sure. And it should be.

The need to fight after a big clean hit is ridiculous and is a poor look on the sport.

His feet came off the ice as a result of contact, not before contact. Everything about this hit is borderline legal. I'm curious how the league will respond.

He definitely didn't jump...he barely even pushed up during the hit. His feet are off the ice after the hit because of physics.

I don't think contact with the head was "avoidable", though, and that's part of that rule. That is, I really don't see how Trouba could hit him without contact to the head. And that's Dal Colle's fault, because he's put his head down.

Basically, I don't want it to be the rule in hockey that a guy can skate around with his head down and thereby make it illegal to hit him straight on.

See, I understand that there's room for a difference of opinion on the hit itself, but this is just a bad, uninformed take. Every hit ever where two players are going in opposite directions will result in the hitter leaving the ice post-contact. That's just physics. He absolutely didn't jump into that hit.

Yeah, I loved the hit personally. I was simply musing on what the leagues reaction will be. To me it's a textbook open ice hit.

No way man, the announcers made the same mistake, a mistake that gets made by fans and media every time in this situation.

Watch the replay closely (ironically the replay where the announcer is saying "Look at this he gets both feet up!!!!") he hits him and then the contact lifts both his feet off the ice, as per physics.

No jump at all. Beauty hit. Miss those.

Reminds me of a Philly player, name escapes me now, #20 I think that go labelled in the playoffs some 2-3, maybe 15 years ago :-)

Looked out up. Umberger got hit by Campbell. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...IZEpf-vOJM0hRL

I don’t know if jump even matters. Like it or not predatory hits are being punished.

It may not matter and he still gets suspended, but let's still get it right in the discussion rather than letting false info help guide the debate.
