The #9 Moment from the 2010-11 Nashville Predators' Regular Season: Jordin Tootoo destroys Michael Frolik

Check the expressions on the fans' faces as Toots sends Frolik on the ride of his life.

To help tide us all over now that the Preds' season is complete, let's take a look back at some of the highlights from the season gone by, working our way up to #1 on a daily basis. - Dirk

Jordin Tootoo had a tumultuous 2010-11 season, one which saw him battle personal struggles away from the rink yet return to the team playing some of his best hockey (he was voted 1st-round team MVP here for his performance against Anaheim). Along the way, however, the legend of the Tootoo Train grew ever greater during a 3-0 triumph over the Florida Panthers, a game in which Anders Lindback earned his 1st career NHL shutout.

Tootoo, already known as a heavy hitter, caught Panthers forward Michael Frolik along the boards with a hard, clean check which brought together the perfect storm of location, velocity, balance and strength. Frolik tumbled head-over-heels and earned himself lasting fame as the victim of a highlight-reel play hockey fans will see for a long, long time.

Don't believe me? Even the NHL named it the #1 Hit of the Year:
