Throughout the year we have been chronicling concussions in the National Hockey League and now the sport is in the post season. We will be noting any concussion we can find; that are both ACTUALLY listed and suspected.
And then there were four; San Jose, Vancouver, Boston and Tampa Bay. And then there were 13; post-season concussions that is.
During Game 7 of the SJ/DET series two RedWings sustained a concussion; Danny Cleary and Todd Bertuzzi. Our most recent listings bringing into question did any other eliminated team have concussions that were not listed?
We should give credit to the RedWings medical staff for holding out very important players in a Game 7, something that I feel confident would not have happened a few years back. Following concussions from this point forward should be a lot easier with the attention put on the game, however we can always use help.
The overall total concussion number for the 2010-2011 year stands at 111.
