Hockey and Medicine

A 2002 Study published in the Canadian Medical Journal studied the cardiovascular effects of the game on adult players.

[The Study's] Interpretation: The physical activity pattern that occurred during recreational hockey caused cardiac responses that might be dangerous to players’ health.

More specifically, the players exceeded target and maximum heart rates, had poor heart rate recovery after exercise, and had episodes of nonsustained ventricular tachycardia and ST-segment depression of uncertain clinical significance.
