Calgary Hitmen – Greatest Hits

To continue my post from yesterday, today I will be showing my collection of greatest hits and fights from the 2015-2016 season. This post will also include hits on the Hitmen, as well as some of the hits they dished out for the season. Obviously, I am only one person and did not get EVERY hit that happened on the ice over the season, that would be impossible. Here are just a few of the ones that made some good photos.

Taylor Sanheim

There were a lot of great hits this season, but a lot of the ones that involved Taylor Sanheim seemed to make some of the best images.

Andrew Fyten

I always knew when Andrew was on the roster for that night I was guaranteed to get a great photo of him leaving the ground somehow or a crazy looking hit.

NHL: Arizona Coyotes at Calgary Flames

I generally shoot from a position that does not do the defensemen any justice (I am usually ice level with us attacking). But when I did shoot from an elevated position (where the TV cameras are), I was able to focus more on our defensemen and the hard work they put in and some of the big hits they got throughout the season.

Keegan Kanzig

I am pretty convinced that teams were just legit too scared to hit Keegan.
