Agreed. Kostitsyn is an intriguing player for many reasons. His overall talent has everybody on this board, including myself, very excited. To answer your question, I did some quick research. Here are my findings.
U Of Florida: Contact Sport and Epilepsy
Hughston Sports Medecine Foundation - Take a look at the section for "Sport-specific recommendations"
Overall, it would seem that people suffering from epilepsy are no more prone to have seizures due to a big collision than say, you or I. In fact, between myself and Kostitsyn I am probably more likely to have a fit on the ice if someone came and cross-checked me into the boards.
Good question though.
