Abstract/Notes

Ice hockey has been identified as a sport with a high risk for concussions. Given the health sequelae associated with the injury, a great deal of attention has been placed on its diagnosis, management and return-to-play protocols. The highest level of ice hockey in North America is played in the National Hockey League (NHL), and concussions pose a serious threat to the health of the players and the game itself. Unfortunately, the scientific literature on concussions in ice hockey is derived mostly from research conducted on youth and amateur levels of play, leaving a gap in our knowledge at the professional level. This narrative review attempts to summarize what is known about concussion incidence, mechanisms of injury and risk factors in the NHL.

Le hockey sur glace est reconnu comme un sport à haut risque pour les commotions cérébrales. Compte tenu des séquelles pour la santé associées à la blessure, son diagnostic, son traitement et les protocoles de retour au jeu font l’objet de beaucoup d’attention. Le plus haut niveau de hockey sur glace en Amérique du Nord est joué dans la Ligue nationale de hockey (LNH), et les commotions cérébrales constituent une menace grave pour la santé des joueurs, voire pour le jeu. Malheureusement, les ouvrages scientifiques sur les commotions cérébrales dans le hockey sur glace proviennent principalement de la recherche menée sur les jeunes et les niveaux amateurs du jeu, laissant un vide au niveau professionnel. Cet examen narratif est un effort pour résumer ce que l’on sait sur l’incidence de la commotion cérébrale, les mécanismes de blessure et les facteurs de risque dans la LNH.
