Welcome to SportzTawk. It's good to see another young gun on the site. The rest of the people on here are old farts.


Anyway, I've never been a big fan of Hockey. I'll play it, but watching it bores me to death. And I'm not sure of any deaths resulting from injuries during the game. Severe paralysis, yes, but death... no. A girl when I lived in North Carolina, and here in Colorado were killed when they were struck by a puck hit up into the stands. Closest thing I can think of is Happy Gillmore trying to stab a guy with his skate.

Welcome to Sportz..

Hey you lot, leave me out of your convo's...

Well as i have said on here before, i played a bit of hockey along time ago for a local side. Had try-outs and made the reserve team, i broke into the first team and played a couple of times, it was no where as big as the NHL but i wasn't too bad....

As for players dying on the ice, i'm not to sure about that. But in the 1974-1975 season - before minor ice hockey players were required to wear facemasks - there were 258 eye injuries, including 43 blinded eyes, whereas in the 2001-2002 season, only 4 eye injuries, including 2 blinded eyes were reported. With all the protective gear they wear now-a-days, it has reduced the risk of injury greatly.

Welcome aboard.

To answer your question, yes people have died playing hockey. Former Minnesota Wild player Sergei Zholtok died playing of heart failure. Jaxon Logan, a BYU hockey player was killed after being struck in the chest by a puck while blocking a shot.

Well put, Gibbs. NOT EVERYONE here is as bad as they seem. :tum::tum::tum::tum: Just kidding. VERY friendly site. And while the sexism is rampant at times, it's never misogynous. Plus, you sound like you can SERIOUSLY take care of yourself. :->

However, as best I recall, TRD's father is 66. In about 2 months, I will turn 53. If he is seriously "old," what does that make me? (And before y'all go wild with your answers, I mean age-wise, lol.)

B.H.N.
