We've got you covered when it comes to the most brutal hits in the NHL regular season. However, when you start venturing outside of North America, it's just a different animal. Take this IIHF game between France and Kazakhstan where Sacha Treille laid out Roman Starchenko with a vicious head shot. Forget asking if the guy will be OK, we just want to make sure dude is still alive.
