NHL, fans have always appreciated the roughness of hockey, a sport known for vicious checking, on-ice fights, and determined players who refuse to let an injury slow them down. Hockey's unofficial warrior code stems from a long tradition of physical contact, endurance, mental toughness, and an honorable acceptance of pain. The player who does whatever is necessary is revered by teammates and coaches alike. He may not always score a goal or make the headlines, but his hard work forms the backbone of a successful team. It is this warrior-player that Crunch uncovers. Crunch introduces bodychecking and shotblocking players, power forwards, agitators, and fighters, from the legendary warriors-on-ice such as Gordie Howe and Bobby Baun, to the current tough-guy stars of the NHL, including Darren McCarty, Stu Grimson, Keith Tkachuk, Eric Lindros. Read stories about players who go back into the game with painful injuries, on-ice rivalries, powerful checks, and great shot blocks....
