Watching Hockey And Heart Issues

from the CP at Sportsnet,

With hockey season now underway, here’s something for fans to take to heart: a new study suggests the excitement of watching one’s favourite team, either live or on TV, can have a profound effect on the cardiovascular system, in some cases even doubling the heart rate.

The study by the Montreal Heart Institute, which monitored the heart rates of Montreal Canadiens fans during games, found that those watching on TV had an average increase of 75 per cent, while those attending a live game saw an average spike in their heartbeats of 110 per cent.

"Our results indicate that viewing a hockey game can be the source of an intense emotional stress, as manifested by marked increases in heart rate," said cardiologist Dr. Paul Khairy, the study’s senior investigator.

This Could Turn The Sports World Upside Down, Including The NHL

from CBSBoston,

The biggest hurdle in the study of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) has been the issue of it only being discoverable in the brain of a deceased patient. That may not be a problem for long.

Researchers from Boston University’s CTE Center announced Tuesday that they may have found a way to detect CTE in living patients.

If the method proves to be reliable, testing could seemingly save innumerable athletes — from high school through the professional ranks — from enduring undue head trauma in their lives.

continued

Allan Walsh (NHL player agent) tweets,

Is this why the NHL refuses to acknowledge tCTE even exists let alone is caused by repetitive head trauma?

What happens if top players in the NFL or NHL test positive for CTE? Will team/league allow them to keep playing? What about insurance co?

This is a game changer. What happens if certain pro sports leagues discover 70%+ of their players test positive for CTE?

Kevin Stevens On His Opioid Addiction

from Fox25Boston,

A man who entered the darkness of opioid addiction is traveling around sharing his story with hopes of stopping others from following his path.

“If you're an opiate addict and stuck in addiction bad things are going to happen,” Kevin Stevens said.

And bad things did happen to Stevens, a former NHL all-star who went from winning the Stanley Cup twice, with the Pittsburgh Penguins to facing jail time in a federal court.

“I was at the bottom. I couldn't see no purpose in my life. There really was no purpose,” he said.

Stevens’ life had fully unraveled in May 2016 when federal agents busted down his door and arrested him for conspiring to sell oxycodone.

For more than twenty years, Stevens, who had a brief stint with the Bruins, struggled with addiction to opiate painkillers after incurring a devastating facial injury during a game.
