A rather hilarious glitch in NHL 13 allows well-timed checks to launch players into the 5th row. The “Hercules Check” video below shows off some awesome hits.

The glitch occurs when a hit happens in conjunction with a line change. I have not been able to recreate the Hercules Check glich myself, but the video above is proof enough for me.

***UPDATE***

The team over at EA SPORTS had some fun with the video as well.
