Most Youth Hockey Injuries Caused by Accidents, Not Checking, Study Shows

ScienceDaily (July 30, 2010) Hockey fans likely would assume that body-checking -- intentionally slamming an opponent against the boards -- causes the most injuries in youth ice hockey. But they would be wrong.

I had 4 major injuries in the 20+ years I played competitively.


Broken Arm
Separated shoulder
Concussion #1
Concussion #2

All 4 were the result of body checks.

Talking about youth hockey. And I guess you are the majority now.

When I played youth hockey at the house league level, I got a seperated shoulder from being tripped into the boards, I broke my hand from taking a puck off of it, and I injured my knee along the boards from a guy falling on top of me awkwardly.

In the four seasons of contact hockey I was able to play, I didn't incur any injuries requiring time off... although I was sore and bruised from time to time.

The first 12 years were in the minor hockey system.


You'll have to translate the rest of your post because I don't get it.

all my injuries were in youth hockey, but i'm still playing. all of them resulted from body checks. they were 3 concussions and a buggered up knee. however, i'm definatly not in favor of eliminating checking from hockey. 2 of the concussions were extremly dirty hits by players who have a long reputation for not caring if they kill the guy they hit, and actually try to hurt people. the other one was an accident from the way i fell when i got hit-i just landed ackwardly and hit my head on the ice

I would pose that the percentages would be different if the players studied were ages 12-18 and not 4-18. Since 4-12 checking isn't allowed I would venture that 99% of their injuries are accidental. To get the 33%/66% numbers the numbers of the 12-18 year olds would have to be at least 80%/20% for body checking injuries. They did a bunch of different studies at different ages and levels and then lumped all the results together.

i would bet that if kids were playing with checking from the beginning of their careers there would be considerable less injuries due to bodychecking from 12 on.

Ive seen idiot kids have their heads down, and go slamming into the boards and getting a concussion.
Ive also seen kids fall and get their hand skated over.

And my personal favorite:

It was the end of an ice session and some guy opened the zamboni door and went back to get the zamboni, and the kid had his head down and skated through the zamboni door.....
