The NHL has a “zero-tolerance” policy when it comes to concussions, according to head coach Mike Johnston.
That means it’s not uncommon for players to suffer concussions and then go out on the ice and score a goal.
And in the latest injury to happen on the international stage, there are still some who are not receiving medical attention.
This time, it’s a blow to a player’s reputation, as well as a reminder of how difficult it can be to come back from serious injuries, according the Associated Press.
A player can get a minor injury or even a major injury if they hit their head on the glass or face a hard object.
Players can also get serious injuries if they take a tumble on the rink.
The number of concussions that have occurred in the NHL this season is not in the top 20.
It’s unclear what happened in this instance, but the NHL has sent out an official statement on the matter.
The NHL and its Players’ Association are aware of the injury to a fan and are in the process of reaching out to the fan and the fan’s family, the league said in a statement.
