National Hockey League Player Retires at 24 Because of Concussions
Donna O’Donnell Figurski
Football and hockey are the two sports that are responsible for the majority of concussions in athletes. A concussion is now known to be a brain injury and can be serious. More and more people are becoming aware of the possibility that a concussion may lead to a major life-change.
Previously I wrote about Chris Borland, a starting rookie linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers in the NFL (National Football League) who quit after one season because of his concerns about brain injury.
Now, Patrick Wey is quitting the Washington Capitals in the NHL (National Hockey League) at a young age (24) because he had two concussions in 2014. Wey plans to substitute “educational interests” for hockey.
