Throwback Thursday: Max Pacioretty demolishes Peter Mueller

Old footage from the Brick Invitational Tournament, showing that Max Pacioretty has always had a physical element to his game, plus several bonus videos of NHL stars at a young age.

Last week we took a look at footage of Brendan Gallagher's origin story, and the previous week we examined P.K. Subban's elite skills as a 10-year-old.

This time around we dug up some footage of a young Max Pacioretty absolutely lighting up Peter Mueller, back in 1998. It's worth noting that the hit was definitely illegal, seeing as you can't hit in novice hockey.

Fortunately Mueller wasn't injured.
