Welcome to CTE, Scott. Jesus.
I’m not sure I’ve seen a hit where the guy who’s delivering gets KO’d, goes tabletop and lifeless like that before a 4-foot face plant. David Backes is a goddamned rock.
And BTW he felt TERRIBLE for Scott.

I feel for Scott. After toiling in the minors for 5 years, people we just getting to know him.
He was stretchered off and gave us the old thumbs up. I feel for Backers too who was visibly upset after the hit. That’s the beauty of the NHL and the players in the game especially throwbacks like Backes.
T’s and P’s Scott. You may be part of Leaf Meme’s history, but no one likes to see this.
