Columbus Blue Jackets forward Matt Calvert got suspended last season for one playoff game for his brutal cross-check to Pittsburgh Penguins forward Tom Kuhnhackl.

Superfan David ‘Spud’ Thornhill enjoyed his 15 minutes of fame at the close of Norwich’s 1-1 draw with Preston North End. A linesman pulled up with an injury, and was replaced by the fourth official. The game briefly looked under threat of abandonment, until Thornhill came to the rescue.

Big wave surfer Dave Wassel leads a scenic hike to one of the best views in all of Hawaii, along the way exploring old World War II bunkers and recounting one of the biggest swells to hit the North Shore in recent history.

Shaun White had been disappointed to finish only fourth in the halfpipe in 2014, after golds the previous two Olympics. And at 31, he showed he still had what it takes to be on top of the snowboarding world, leaving Hirano, 19, and Scotty James of Australia, 23, behind in the silver and bronze positions.

“It’s time to break out our trusty radar gun and find out, once and for all: How fast can Justin “Figgy” Figueroa nollie flip?!” – @berrics.

With a break in monster swells, we take a look back at some of the best moments from the beginning of the 2017–18 big wave season at Pe’ahi. Follow Kai Lenny and the locals off the ledge at heaving Jaws in 60fps!

“Farm Jam has rapidly grown into a bucket list event for any two-wheeled action sport athletes. We are beyond excited to once again bring you the exclusive collaboration range for this insanely epic event.” – @ilabb.

“Watch as Grady Flynn breaks boat in half on last drop of Avalanche Falls. He was 100% OK and he was paddling a very early stage Prototype kayak. Still Funny to watch though!” – Wade Harrison.

The rain came to Dunedin, New Zealand, and turned the Signal Hill downhill track into an ice skating rink for race day at the 2018 Oceania DH Championships. Never before have so many riders pulled out of an event on race day. It was not an easy track, and it wasn’t so much a matter of “will they crash?” but “when will they crash?”

Guy hits biggest snowmobile jump of his life. “Did you get the shot?” Friend: “Sorry, I was cleaning my lens.” Watch as Jonathan Jean sends it across a major gap. The only problem is none of his friends were ready to film it.

This small lake outside Stockholm, Sweden, emits otherworldly sounds as Mårten Ajne skates over its precariously thin, black ice. “Wild ice skating,” or “Nordic skating,” is both an art and a science. A skater seeks out the thinnest, most pristine black ice possible—both for its smoothness, and for its high-pitched, laser-like sounds.

Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy makes an unbelievable behind-the-back-glove save in the first period against the Kings.

“At the heart of the development of Mirage Boardshorts is the fact that we are surfers. Crafted in conjunction with our elite team, each short has survived day long surf sessions, endless tubes and life on The Search. Constructed from the most advanced hydrophobic stretch fabrics, they truly are The Ultimate Boardshort.” – @ripcurl_aus.

McKenzie, who you may remember as being a star with the New Zealand U20 side, scored a try and kicked two conversions and a long range penalty, and played a key role in the Chiefs backline. His tackle on gigantic Fijian winger Nemani Nadolo defied belief, as he lined him up, got low and not only saved a near certain try, but bumped the giant winger into touch with perfect timing.

It’s one thing to decisively clobber your opponent in the third round of a major fight. And as Yoel Romero knows after UFC 221, it’s another thing to not even get a belt out of the deal. Romero’s thundering power with either hand was on display in his bout against Luke Rockhold. But unfortunately for him, his two-pound weight overage at weigh-in ensured no belt was on the line.

“Joona couldn’t start filming until March due to a knee surgery, but he hates filming in cold temperatures so that’s pretty 50/60 if you ask me.” – @labyrinthcrew.

A while ago, Robert Bobroczkyi made waves on the internet for towering above his classmates while playing basketball in high school. Well, Robert is still chasing his dream on turning pro and playing in the NBA, and we can’t see this not happening!

Nike had released a major new advertisement celebrating London’s diversity, featuring an array of stars including Skepta, Harry Kane, Michael Dapaah and host of other figures from the worlds of sport and music.
