What exactly is meant by a 'north-south' hit? I'm having a discussion with a friend of mine, and he states that this hit was okay, because it was still the two players heading towards each other. IE, 'north-south' is in relation to the player's motion. I always thought it was in reference to the rink directions (north-south) means up or down the length of the ice. The 3:00 mark of the NHL video discussing blindside hits seems to support my conjecture, but has anyone actually seen what the NHL means by 'north-south'?
