Despite growing interest in the biomechanical mechanisms of sports-related concussion, ice hockey and the youth sport population has not been studied extensively. The purpose of this pilot study was: 1) to describe the biomechanical measures of head impacts in youth minor ice hockey players; and, 2) to investigate the influence of player and game(More)
Often compared to Gutenberg's introduction of the printing press in the 1450s, the use of the Internet in education, and especially within the undergraduate curriculum is ubiquitous. Yet the development and presentation of electronic undergraduate curriculum specifically on the Internet is a relatively new venture. Although guidelines for course development(More)
Several studies have reported post-exercise increases of urinary concentrations of plasma proteins. However, under normal conditions, through mechanisms of size and electrical charge selection, the kidney restricts the clearance of molecules as large as albumin. Post-exercise increases in albuminuria occur following the physiological stress of intense(More)
This study aimed to present currently known basic science and on-ice influences of sport-related concussion (SRC) in hockey, building upon the Ice Hockey Summit I action plan (2011) to reduce SRC. The prior summit proceedings included an action plan intended to reduce SRC. As such, the proceedings from Summit I served as a point of departure for the science(More)
OBJECTIVE Use of the Nintendo Wii™ as a balance assessment and rehabilitation tool continues to grow. One advantage of the Wii is that games can serve as a virtual reality training tool; however, a disadvantage of the Wii is the human-machine interface and the learning effect over multiple trials. The purpose of this study was to assess changes in postural(More)
Few studies have reported a sport-specific protocol to measure the aerobic power of ice hockey players using a predictive process. The purpose of our study was to validate an ice hockey aerobic field test on players of varying ages, abilities, and levels. The Faught Aerobic Skating Test (FAST) uses an on-ice continuous skating protocol on a course measuring(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between relative age and injury prevalence in Canadian youth ice hockey. METHODS In study 1, youth ice hockey-related injuries (among children 10-15 years of age) collected by the Canadian Hospitals Injury Reporting and Prevention Program between 1995 and 2002 were analyzed. The(More)
With the invention of the ion-selective electrode (ISE), ionic magnesium (iMg) is a common blood assay. This could be advantageous, as iMg is the biologically active form of Mg. There is some evidence that iMg has considerable within subject variability. Individual ranges averaged .08 mmol/L (range .05 to .14). Coefficients of variation (CV) ranged from 3%(More)
Ice hockey requires frequent skater crossovers to execute turns. Our investigation aimed to determine the effectiveness of training crossovers on a motorized, polyethylene high-resistance flywheel. We hypothesized that high school hockey players training on the flywheel would perform as well as their peers training on ice. Participants were 23 male(More)
The lack of agreement on definition of terms and consistent reporting strategies in sports epidemiology complicates the determination of injury rates in any sport. This study describes Canadian Intercollegiate ice hockey injuries over a 6-year period by following a standardized reporting strategy and clearly defined terminology. Overall, the data show that(More)
