After the Brooks Laich dating Julianne Hough news, the only natural follow-up is an article dedicated to  butt-checking.

Yes, during Sunday’s game between Russia and Slovakia, Slovak goaltender Jan Laco left the puck for a defenseman behind the net. Unfortunately for him, Alexi Tereshenko hustled and messed up those plans, sending the goaltender into an existential crisis: Should he go back to the net and defend against a possible wraparound? Or should he try to obstruct Tereshenko?

Laco picked option B. It started off subtle. Then it got really, really unsubtle. Laco sent Teresheko into the boards. With his booty.

Okay let’s get all the SEO keywords out of the way now: Olympics, Butt-Check, BUTTCHECK, KHL Butt Check, Player Gets Checked By Butt, Sir-Mix-A-Lot, #Buttcheck, #Assmode, Mark Sanchez, BUTT, CHECK.

Thank you, Olympics. More of this please.

And, oh yeah, Russia won 1-0.

    Russia should have gotten an automatic goal out of that. Had Teresheko not been interfered with, he would have scored (and thus, Russia would have won in #rego.

  • I’m giving this an upvote for trying to keep Peter’s dream of #rego alive.

    not only did you miss the buttcheck you missed the cry sob check


  • tina belcher is the greatest

  • Patrick Neimeyer

    Could this check ever possibly go wrong and end up being a “twerking,” penalty?

  • I’m more of a Louise Belcher fan.

  • Did I miss the buttcheck if I wrote about it?

    I was hoping you guys would write about teemu having some lovely words with sidney as well! One of yesterday’s highlights for me.

  • Honestly, I didn’t want a million comments of Cindy Crosby and the like. Plus I literally hate him, so it actually takes more than that for me to write about him.

  • danny

    I can see how that could turn into an annoying discussion quick, I feel ya. I was surpised it came from teemu though!

    PSA: I don’t have a name for what Miley did, but it most certainly was not twerking. #breakthestereotype

  • Roy Schue

    That’s the funniest thing I’ve seen in hockey since semin playing the bongos on Marc staal

  • scrubversive

    I hope Holtby is taking notes. This seems like the kind of thing he would do and I demand to see it.

    I can’t help laughing no matter how many times I watch that. For me this ranks right up there with Green’s over-the-boards body check earlier this season.

  • factoryofsadness

    lol just as he checks him, timing the part of baby got back to “you get sprung”. priceless.

    As funny as this was, I actually don’t this it was technically a penalty. If he was any other player that is a clean body check on an opponent playing a nearby puck. But I think the refs called it to discourage that type play by a goalie. If they let him get away with that hit then the next time a forward would be justified to just take him out like you would any other player.
