Patric Hornqvist never saw Ryan Stanton coming. With a pass lofted in his direction, Hornqvist put his head down and completely lost track of his surroundings. The result was a huge hit which forced Hornqvist to leave the game.

Having played together in the Blackhawks organization for the past 4 seasons, it is safe to assume Ryan Stanton and Brandon Bollig have crossed paths quite a few times.
It is also safe to assume the two had never crossed paths as violently as they did during Thursday night’s exhibition game between the Calgary Flames and Vancouver Canucks
I personally have been waiting years so...
Vancouver Canucks forward Ryan Stanton was checked through an open door on Sunday night against the Calgary Flames. You can tell how dangerous of a play this was because of how the Flames players reacted.
