These are the kind of hits that remind hockey players everywhere that you must keep your head up!
New York Islanders forward Anthony Beauvillier found that out the hard way tonight, as Detroit Red Wings forward Adam Erne laid him out with a devastating (and perfectly clean) check during the 1st period tonight at Little Caesars Arena:

The Islanders would take exception to the hit, going after Erne immediately afterwards.
