I honestly don't care though. If it means anything to you I will call on a public shaming to the Coyote medical crew.
Sorry I should have qualified the statement. I have coached many young elite hockey players, been involved in several years of coaching including running body checking clinics and have attended workshops on concussion in sport. I also have first hand experience on how debilitating concussions can be and the difficulty to come back from a concussion.
It is a major issue to allow your athlete to continue participating in a game when he is clearly injured. At any level of sport. You can't "fight through" a concussion with any amount of success. It's not a groin pull, it's swelling on the brain.
