It would be interesting to know what % of kids in minor hockey continue on into a league where there is hitting (juniors, competitive mens leagues and senior hockey). I don't know what the #'s are, but I would bet that most kids stop playing contact hockey after midget. I know for myself (and I think most of my friends and team mates that I grew up playing hockey with) I took a couple years off hockey to go to college and then started playing in a mens league that was just for fun and beer. Again I don't know the stats, but if this is how most people play out there hockey "career", then why on earth are we subjecting ALL kids to the risk of concussions from hitting when only a FEW will go onto leagues where hitting is a major part of the game.
