NHL 13's Hercules Check Is Greatest Glitch in Sports Video Games

Not since we saw players bleed in NHLPA Hockey for the Sega Genesis have we been so excited to play a hockey video game. 

Thanks to Sports Pickle, who spotted this masterpiece video, we now know there is a glitch tucked into the darker recesses of NHL 13 that allows you to send players flying. 

There is no way to describe the sight of NHL avatars flying like rag dolls into the stands other than to call it "hilarious."

We're not the only ones who are giddy, because the voice-over fan behind this 2BCProductions video is going insane with this new knowledge. 

We have to agree. 

This is hardly going to get the players to go back to work and relieve all our depression over the prospect of missed games. But this certainly takes some of the brunt of a lockout off the fan's backs. 

Take all your aggression out by checking players during a line change, which seems to be the only criteria to make this glitch happen. 

Not only will you destroy your opponent, but you will send his best player into the cheap seats. We rather like the idea of pulling this little move off during online play. 

If the experience weren't already peppered with colorful language, making a player part of the crowd would bring a whole new level of beautiful frustration to your next online clash.
