Special Series

The Leader-Post

November 21, 2011

The issue of head injuries in hockey has been front and centre in recent months, especially with respect to concussions and growing concerns over the role of fighting.

Although the most prominent discussions have pertained to the National Hockey League, the repercussions are far-reaching, extending to hockey's developmental system. With that in mind, Leader-Post sports writer Greg Harder has prepared a five-part series on head injuries, beginning with minor hockey and focusing on the Western Hockey League.

Harder, who covers the WHL's Regina Pats, will delve into head injuries, the measures that have been taken to prevent such occurrences and the ongoing issues that players face as they move along the hockey chain.

Harder's series begins in Tuesday's Leader-Post sports section and continues until Saturday.
