Re: Checking - Middle School Hockey

My son played middle school hockey for the first time and they allowed checking. He is average size, but I was amazed how it changed the game. To those who say there is no hitting in the game anymore, go see it. I am not for goons who go out there and hurt kids, but it changed the game. The kids that were big and fast totally dominated by end of game.

I saw a kid get hit with head down and by the second game he was giving up the puck as fast as he could.

Kids that are big and fast have dominated since mites. Big and fast dominates in every sport at every level. Big without fast does not.
Ahhhh...Finally someone gets it...
