Video: Jake McCabe crushes Patrik Laine with a huge open-ice hit

Patrik Laine was on the receiving end of one of the biggest hits of the season courtesy of Jake McCabe. Laine was entering the neutral zone and trying to corral a puck when he committed a cardinal sin in hockey – he had his head down. McCabe stepped up and delivered an absolute monster hit.

As you might imagine, the Jets weren’t too happy seeing their star get rocked and went after a few Sabres players. There was some pushing, shoving and a few players down on the ice, but the end result wasn’t as noteworthy as the hit itself.
