Synopsis by Alice Day
This program offers a look at some of the hardest hitters in the history of the National Hockey League, highlighting such legendary players as Gordie Howe. Howe's power-playing style intimidated his opponents, and his techniques have inspired some of the more aggressive checkers such as Chris Chelios, Mike Peca, and Chris Simon. Going up against these heavy hitters takes some courage, and in NHL: Grit & Guts -- NHL's Heavy Hitters, the tough guys prevail. Lots of exciting footage is featured, as well as a look at how several NHL forwards train during the off-season.
