David Koci Throws a Hit on John Erskine

David Koci Throws a Hit on John Erskine To play in the NHL, you need passion. It takes a certain level of energy to skate into the corners and lay a hit on an opponent.

David Koci of the Colorado Avalanche, however, makes it look like a piece of cake as he puts a hit on Washington’s John Erskine.

It was Erskine and the Caps that had the last laugh, however, as Washington would win 6-1 and Koci would be assessed 20 minutes of penalties for boarding Mike Green, fighting Erskine and being given a 10-minute misconduct.

When looking at that list, maybe the hit in the corner really was no big deal.
