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.
