In today's NHL, goaltenders rarely display the fiery aggression of past eras, but New Jersey Devils' Vitek Vanecek breaks the mold.

During a recent game against the Flames, Vanecek made headlines by aggressively confronting opposing forwards Martin Pospisil and Nazem Kadri late in the third period.


This throwback to old-school hockey adds an element of unpredictability to the modern game, reminding fans of the intensity and passion that once defined the sport.


Vanecek's bold move may have been a nod to hockey's rich history, but it left a lasting impression on the game and showcased the enduring spirit of the sport.
