Minnesota Wild's Jason Zucker Destroyed By Hard Hit

Minnesota Wild rookie Jason Zucker will probably not remember a lot about Tuesday's game. Anaheim's Corey Perry nailed with a late hit that included a hard shoulder to the head. The poor kid was down for several minutes before he was finally helped up and off the ice. Football players get a lot of attention for the hits they take, but these guys really get hit hard...
