Hit of the year candidate.

New to the hockey scene is the Arizona State University. They were taking on the Minnesota Golden Gophers at Mariucci Arena in Minneapolis when Gopher freshman, Sampo Ranta from Finland didn't exactly have his head on a swivel. Jacob Wilson (former member of the Sioux City Musketeers) threw an open ice check that will be up for hit of year.

While this Arizona State player won the battle, Minnesota won the war winning the game 5-2.
