Did Smyth do something? I don't understand how you could do that without being provoked earlier on the play (I'm not saying the hit was deserved).

Vicious hit at full speed to a guy without the puck in a senior league. Holy **** that's bad.

Is this league basically Slapshot?

It's not. I just understand how they feel, watching one of my all-time favorite players and a local hero get taken out by such a disgusting hit.

Looks to be an elbow to the head but I can't say with 100% certainty. That's going to be a devastating hit elbow or not.
That's late in any hockey league. The puck is nowhere near Smyth. In fact I think the puck is actually in the net which makes it even worse. I mean who makes a hit from where Smyth was positioned? He was only a few feet from in front of the net. East to West hits happen I get that, but I can't recall ever seeing a hit that hard from East to West from that close in. They're always a lot further out. This player came in with a purpose. Makes me wonder if he was upset and was targeting him?

EDIT: Apparently a few posts above it says he has been suspended before and has targeted Smyth in the past. Well there you go I guess.

I don't know much about this league, but this isn't your typical drop-in beer league game. To throw that hit on anyone, let alone a former NHL'er like Ryan Smyth, is ****ing disgusting.

This. . A never was loser trying to look like a big shot

Any candy ass can take a run at an unsuspecting player. . . All he proved was that he's a coward

That's hard to watch. Looked like he made up his mind to drill Smyth regardless of anything else.

He needs to be banned. Suspension? What the ****? If his previous suspensions were for anything like what we just saw on video - he should have been gone from the league long ago.

Smyth backhanded the puck there less than 0.5 secs before. Or maybe I'm just not seeing it clearly on an iPad. That is very much a possibility too.

That should be a criminal assault charge. In a rec league, that's in no way a hockey play.

Absolutely terrible hit. Would be one of the worst hits you'd see in the NHL, but in a men's league like this it's beyond disgusting. IMO there should absolutely criminal charges, strapping on skates should not mean you're allowed to commit brutal assaults.

You're right.. Very similar to a Jeff Carter hit a few years ago; not really late but headshot to player who just scored and likely wasn't expecting.

Timing wasn't an issue. That was a dirty hit, elbow to the head...

Curious where this game was played?

I know senior men's in Sask can be VERY rough hockey.
It the top tier Alberta Men's League and the team Smyth plays on, the Stony Plain Eagles, have always had a strong team. There are a couple other former pros playing on the team, former university players, former major junior, etc. It's actually very good good hockey for senior men's... definitely not a beer league.

The guy who hit him was a former "tough" guy in the WHL. I am not going to post his name because I don't want to give him any more attention. What a puke!

He's gone into hiding. That attention isn't positive. He's gotten abused and harassed, and I'm happy to hear it.

Hopefully he isn't sleeping easy.

I could see this happening or some other charge. It was a deliberate attempt to injure the player with a head shot.

Smyth is captain of the Stony Plain Eagles (Chinook Hockey League, senior AAA). This occurred early in the third period of Game 1 of the Provincial Championship on Saturday (his team won 6-4). The winner goes to New Brunswick to play for the Allan Cup.
Probably why he targeted their best player

Terrible hit. Looked absolutely like intent to injure. I would like bad things to happen to this person.

Agreed that would be a long ban in the NHL especially with many stating he's targeted Smyth in the past.
