“I just look at it as an easier way to stop. Stops and starts are two of the hardest things to do on your body. It takes almost less energy to hit somebody; it stops you. You just kind of throw yourself into them, and you’re stopped; you can go the other way without expending any energy.”
– Minnesota’s Cal Clutterbuck on bodychecking. Clutterbuck has already set a new team record with 143 hits so far this season.
