Usually body checks that made an opposing player lose control of the puck

AnswerAt the end of the 2002 season hits were no longer kept track of because it was too hard to judge exactly what one was. Unlike shot and saves, it is hard to train a stat keeper on what one is. AnswerI don't know where this guy got his information but the NHL still keeps the hits statistic. I was curious about this myself so I asked my old coach, he said the "hit" stat is counted as when a player forces an opposing player to lose the puck through physical contact. a hit only counts if it A. causes a turnover or B. makes opposing player lose control of the puck. for example, if a player hits an opposing player after he has passed the puck or shot it, it is not counted as a hit
