Dustin Byfuglien is a massive wrecking ball, even by NHL standards. You do not want to find yourself in the oncoming path of the 6-foot-5, 260-pound Winnipeg Jets defenseman.
Big Buff showcased his strength and physicality once again on Monday night against the Sharks when he took out three skaters (including a teammate) with one body check on a San Jose rush.
There’s not many guys capable of doing that, and the end result was a humorous tangled mess of bodies behind the net at the conclusion of the play.
Luckily everybody got up and walked away just fine after the collision.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Byfuglien show off the tremendous advantage his size gives him — and it won’t be the last — but it’s always nice to get a reminder. Unless, of course, you’re on the wrong end of that reminder.
