NHL Needs to Learn from the NFL and Get Serious About Concussions
Hockey is a sport where contact is inevitable. Each game, players check each other with incredible force and get into fights regularly. It is a culture that the sport has nurtured throughout its history and it doesn’t plan on changing anytime soon. But in a fast paced and physical game such as Hockey, concussions and PED’s become an issue. The league and player’s association have a concussion and PED protocol that has attempted to decrease both aspects, but have only had minimal success.
