"[Hockey] requires speed, power, and teamwork. The unique nature of the game of hockey results in specific injury patterns, some of which can be avoided. A working knowledge of injury risk, sport-specific conditioning and prevention strategies are essential for athletes, coaches, parents and administrators." says Michael J. Stuart MD and Chief Medical Officer, USA Hockey Professor of Orthopedics, Co-Director of Sports Medicine at the Mayo Clinic.

Additional information on concussions can be found through the USA Hockey web site. Using mouth pieces correctly is one of the key ways to reduce the likelihood of a concussion.
