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.


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