Rec hockey players get concussions. Kids get concussions playing high school football. A guy at work got a concussion playing squash a couple of years ago because he slipped and fell into the wall. A friend of mine in high school got a concussion in a legendary shopping card incident.
Where does the suing begin and end is my question. Are house hockey leagues liable? What about junior? Do NHL players not sign a waiver when the play? I know I do and I only play beer league hockey and of course I understand there are risks even in beer league.
Most NHL players could have a comfortable life away from hockey after a couple years in the league, yet they all stay or try to stay in the league for many years. If it's so risky and they're compensated so poorly, why stay?
