OT here, but just for interest sake, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xtLI6aI7U80 (sorry, wasn't sure how to embed it) at the 0:16 mark has an incredible hip check. I wanted to find one by Brad Park, great Rangers defenseman who threw more of them than anybody, at least that I knew of. A few players used to throw these, not so much anymore.
