Old Time Hockey: Manson Drops Myers with Well-Timed Flying Haymaker

It all started when Vancouver Canucks’ forward Elias Pettersson took a bump from Max JonesTyler Myers took exception to the hit, which admittedly didn’t look that bad.   Myers gave Jones a couple of cross-checks before grabbing Jakob Silfverberg.

And that’s when Josh Manson comes in.

The moment Manson spotted Myers grabbing his team’s second-leading scorer, he sprinted towards Myers while majestically dropping his gloves and stick in stride.  Manson (6′ 3″, 216 lbs) grabbed Myers (6′ 8″, 227 lbs) like a he was a mini-mite, ripped him off of Silfverberg and while the two fell to the ice, executed one of the most well-timed, well-placed haymakers I’ve ever seen, right to Myers’ dome.
