Don't these privacy laws like HIPAA do prevent these disclosures (not sure what they have in Canada). If I remember in Finland (SM-league), they are not telling anymore what kind of injury player has, just how long he will be away.
On the other hand these guys are public figures and maybe it's part their player contract to disclose injuries.

Good question. I'd have to read their contract but I'd be shocked if the players don't waive their privacy rights. Thus it would not violate HIPAA laws.
