Top Five NHL Heavy Hitters with Islanders' Matt Martin

To say New York Islanders left winger Matt Martin is a heavy hitter might be an understatement.

Last year, in a lockout-shortened 48-game schedule, Martin led the NHL 234 hits, and in 2011-12, he set a league record for hits in a single season by recording 374.

With a full 2013-14 season underway, the 24-year-old from Windsor, Ontario is once again taking aim at that record, but he’s going to have plenty of company – and in the video above, we caught up with Martin to see which players on the ice he thinks can land body checks just as hard as he can.

Agree or disagree with Martin’s assessments? Let us know in the comments below!
