Hit Somebody! Hitmen

The Hit Somebody! Hitmen are an international street hockey team. They were introduced to the VASHL as an expansion team for the 2015 tournament.

The team is based on Kevin Smith`s upcoming hockey drama-comedy based on the song “Hit Somebody (The Hockey Song)” by Warren Zevon. The song, which is about a hockey player famous for fighting in the rink, was co-written by Tuesdays With Morrie author Mitch Albom, who is working with Smith on the project.

The current logo and jersey, introduced in 2016, are based upon the character of Jay’s appearance in Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back.

The team are the second franchise to use the name, after the original VASHL team (now known as the Eden Prairie Mallrats).
