National Hockey League fans will soon be reminded how hockey can be a viscious sport. The season has long been underway in Russia, and one Kontinental Hockey League player has been suspended for a dangerous hit. 

Ak Bars' defenseman Stepan Zakharchuk has been suspended for 8 games on Wednesday. He delivered a heavy hit to the head of Alexander Budkin of the Magnitogorsk Metallurg.

See the devastating hit below:
