Callahan, Boyle & Eminger Like to Hit

boylehitScott Cullen at TSN ranks the leaders and trailers in hits per 60 minutes of even strength play last season in the NHL with Ryan Callahan showing up as the 32nd ranked forward with 13.93 hits per 60 and Brian Boyle at #42 with 12.88 hits.

Meanwhile, Steve Eminger had the 16th most hits per 60 minutes for defenseman with 8.57.

No Ranger player fell in the bottom 25 in hits for forwards or defensemen.

…one thing you can always count on with a Tortorella team is a hard forecheck which leads to lots of hits. You could always tell when the Rangers were having an off night because the forecheck was no where to be found.

…you have to wonder if all those hits led to Boyle’s offensive numbers fading late in the season.
