AHL Defenseman Sean Sullivan Delivers The Perfect Hip Check (Video)

When Los Angeles Kings defenseman Rob Scuderi sent Columbus Blue Jackets forward Jason Chimera soaring head over heals with a hip check a few years back, we had some trouble determining whether the hit was clean or dirty.  Did Scuderi go to low?  Should Chimera have been prepared to endure such a check?  It was a tough call to make.

As for this hip check by Sean Sullivan of the Worcester Sharks, there is no debate required.  It was as clean as a whistle.

As for Jason Pitton of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, he probably doesn’t feel the same way about Sullivan’s check.  At least that is what we would expect to hear from the man who was just sent somersaulting through the air before crashing to the ice.
