Each week we scour the web to find concussions in the National Hockey League. We will keep a running tally on that information as the season progresses. However, it is not easy as the NHL has decided that listing injuries as “upper body” or “undisclosed” is a good indicator of actual injuries occurred. Our list is believed to be as accurate as possible, even including injuries that have vague listings but through reports and video analysis should be classified as concussions.
- Alex Hemsky – Edmonton Oilers
- Colton Orr – Toronto Maple Leafs
- David Schlemko – Phoenix Coyotes
Total NHL Concussion listings = 52
UPDATE: Marc Savard – Boston Bruins, new total 53
