The last person to concuss Carey Price was David Desharnais. The teams that had the most player games lost to concussions last regular season was the St Louis Blues, followed by Minnesota and Pittsburgh. Teams that between them regularly dress people who could be described as 'enforcers'. Boston have had a consistently tough team but have still had players miss huge amount of time through concussions including Marc Savard and Nathan Horton (both players injured in cheap shot hits, both while Milan Lucic was on the ice, zero 'repercussions' each time).
If you're going to make claims that dressing an enforcer reduces concussions suffered to players on the team, then you're going to have to present some evidence that it's actually true, because I've yet to see any.
