Kyle Flanagan Crushed On Open Ice Hit In The Swedish Hockey League

This huge hit comes to us from the Svenska hockeyligan, also known as the Swedish Hockey League. The guy doing the trucking is Jesper Jensen, a Danish forward who plays for Färjestad BK, and the guy getting trucked is Kyle Flanagan, an American and onetime Flyers signee who plays for Modo.


According to an article translated from the Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet, Jensen received a five-minute game misconduct for the hit. Modo's doctor said Flangan only has a "stiff neck" and was expected to play in the next game, but Modo's head coach said doc must've looked at the wrong player and that Flanagan "was groggy. It's probably a concussion. It crept on."
