Didn't a hit like that happen to Rome when on Vancouver and he busted his face up?

There's blame on all sides.

The receiver should have looked up ice earlier to see what was happening. You shouldn't wait until the puck is completely on your stick and in control for a full second before looking around to figure out what to do with it.

The passer (seems to be the goalie) should have also noticed him coming and sent the puck a little more along the boards to limit the huge open ice potential of the hit.

Everyone else on his team should have seen it coming and been screaming that he's about to be run over.

Hasn't look out of place as a solid 4th liner in the couple of games he's played. Better than what we've had for sure.

What a beauty of a hit

The most amazing to me is that Archibald don't even seem to put some strength in this hit. It's like he's peacefully gliding, bump into some guy, and have this guy doing backflips like Philippe Candeloro.

How lucky is he that he didn't break his neck there? Seriously, it looks like he almost could have landed on the side of neck/head.

Still got the pass off. Hitter would have been better off trying to play the puck.

Holy hell, that didn't look like a lot of force in the first clip but the second is messed up. Beauty hit, that gets you a call in NHL nowadays

The hit was ****ing huge but I wonder how he got that sort of force without being called for charging. Would love to see another angle of it but probably not going to happen.
Regardless he puts his team mate in a real tough situation.

Aweseome hit though

He played 8 games on the Canucks earlier this year and asserted himself pretty well. Kind of fell behind the play a bit after a while and was sent back down to develop a bit further. But he's a big, strong kid with decent hands, probably be a solid 4th liner at the NHL level eventually.

Clean hit in this instance. But Archibald is a POS. I hope he gets his face caved in.

That is crazy. That dude did a complete flip on his z axis. I don't think I'll ever see that again.

I don't think you can give someone a suicide pass in the freaking corner.

Eh, I didn't think it was "suicidal". Not a good pass, sure, but Stollery had time to turn around and make a play along the boards instead. Or if he was an NHL-caliber, he most likely would've stayed in his place and made the pass up the ice while bracing for the hit
