Canadian Major Junior can't be happy about this either. That's more players with less contact experience.
Are you inferring you can tell a kid was hurt because the kid who hit him didn't know how to body check properly?
I'm actually more liable to believe a kid would more likely get hurt by a more experienced body checker.
Where is this research to support uneducated body contact causes more serious injuries than educated?
The only thing we know is Body checking causes more serious injuries. Not inexperienced body checking causing serious injuries.
