New Hockey Product Lets You Board-Check Hated Team

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Hockey fans are probably drowning their sorrows in beer thanks to the NHL lockout, but a new product allows the board-checking, penalty box-loving fans to take out their frustrations by smashing their most hated team.

The so-called NHL Ice Crusher is a fist-sized, clear, fake ice chunk with a team’s hockey logo engraved on it and a flattened rival player etched on the bottom. It’s meant to be smashed against any hard surface.

Product inventor Dennis Radosevich says he made the novelty item so fans can put the smackdown on their hated rivals since the “actual hockey players can’t right now.”

So far it only comes in Detroit Red Wings and Colorado Avalanche versions, but Radosevich says more teams will be added in the future.

The former goalie believes the ice crushers – which are available at for $19.99 – will sell like hotcakes since “people are hungry for anything hockey right now.”
