Austin Watson Decks Ryan Getzlaf with Thunderous Check

Oh, mercy was this a massive body blow by Austin Watson of the Predators on Ryan Getzlaf of the Ducks.

Watson, a 23-year-old left wing from Ann Arbor, Michigan, has played most of the last three seasons with Milwaukee of the AHL. If he keeps making hits like this he may stay in Nashville for a bit longer.

Here's a nice slo-mo GIF of the hit:
