NHL Seems Ready to Join the NFL in Recognizing the Risk of Brain Injury As A Result of Concussion.

Recent reports indicate that the NHL has now recognized the likelihood of repeated concussions causing brain injury in hockey players over a long period of time. Both the NFL and NFL Players Association have had representatives testify in Congress acknowledging the likelihood of repeated concussions can cause traumatic brain injury and affect memory and other cognitive functions among its players. The NHL was a little slower to recognize this effect of concussion but now seems ready to publicly acknowledge that fact. Both the law firm of Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C. and the Brain Injury Association of D.C. would welcome such an acknowledgement.
