Dmitry Orlov is in Russia for the IIHF World Championship, the NIT Tournament of the hockey world. That’s bittersweet, but this hit by Orlov on Nino Niederreiter of the Swiss team during Saturday’s game is just sweet. It is freaking sweet.
Niederreiter, driving to the net, tries to switch behind Orlov. He does not succeed.
It’s a submarine sandwich. Another angle, by Marc Dumont:
Niederreiter tries to cut across Orlov. It didn't work out as intended. And then Niederreiter chucked Orlov's helmet pic.twitter.com/DzBRTvuaC4
