Career length and performance decreased after ACL injury in professional hockey players

Although most professional hockey players are able to return to play after ACL injury, career length and performance may be significantly decreased compared with a control group, according to results.

Using the National Hockey League Injury Surveillance System, researchers identified 47 players with an ACL injury between 2006 and 2010, and surveyed medical staff members regarding these injuries. Researchers identified a control group that was matched based on performance, career length before injury, age, height and weight.
