A thing of beauty.

There are few things that get fans out of their seats like a big time hip check.

On Thursday night in the National Hockey League, during the match up between the Philadlephia Flyers and Arizona Coyotes, Coyotes forward Anthony Duclair was sent end over end by Flyers' forward Sean Couturier with a textbook hip check.

Duclair did his best to avoid the hit, but may have actually made his landing worse by trying to avoid contact, landing nearly right on his head as a result. To his credit though he bounced right back up and kept playing.
