NHL Concussion Report 2.28.11

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.

This week has been very quiet on the concussion front.  Other than some “undisclosed” and “upper body” injuries that are very suspect there is nothing to add this week.  The total remains at 70 for the season thus far, making this season on pace for the most reported.  With the NHL Superstar Sidney Crosby continued to be sidelined by concussion symptoms, the NHL must grasp this issue to its fullest.

For those interested here is the full list we have at this time (and it will be the last we show our data);
