You don’t have to be an NHL brawler to know how to drop an opponent.
A towering Quebec Major Junior Hockey League player proved that recently.
Samuel Morin, a 16-year-old of Rimouski Océanic dropped 17-year-old Kurt Etchegary of the Québec Remparts with ease over the weekend, as seen in the video below. The Remparts skater was handled with ease by Morin, who after an exchange of blows, knocked Etchegary out cold. He reportedly suffered a concussion and judging by the photo below, he’ll need a lot of ice and Tylenol.
While some folks are crying foul because of the size differential (Morin at 6-foot-5 towers over Etchegary at 5-foot-11), Etchegary’s coach and general manager Patrick Roy (I think he played a little hockey, himself?) wants to see fighting eliminated. Good luck with that argument, Pat.
