Trained to hit with there elbow tucked and drive the arm/shoulder into the opposing player? Every defenseman is trained to do this.
The reason you don't see more Prucha-type hits is because very few players in the NHL skate with there head 2 feet infront of their body like Prucha does.
Lukowich isn't known for nasty hits. It's funny, though, that this isn't the first time Prucha has been belted in this manner. Perhaps you could find a better correlation within those two variables: player skating style and victimized by devastating hits.
