I might be off-base with this, but it seems like the majority of fight-related concussions happen during staged fights. You have two enormous guys, professionally trained to fight on skates, throwing haymakers at each other... sooner or later someone is going to get knocked out on his feet and that's where you have guys banging their heads on the ice.
Again maybe I'm just forgetting, but it seems like "natural" fights rarely put a guy in position to get completely clobbered and/or fall backward to hit his head.
