Watch Ryan Ellis launch Wayne Simmonds into orbit
Ryan Ellis might be a rookie defenseman for Nashville, but he sure knows how to throw an old fashioned hip check. You can just ask Philly forward Wayne Simmonds about that as he got a dose of what it was like to play in a bygone era courtesy of Ellis and his shifty hips. Ellis’ check was symbolic for how things went for Nashville as they took out the Flyers 4-2 on home ice.
If someone can, send this along to Brad Marchand to show him how to more appropriately throw a hip check.
