Study links smaller rosters to less body checking

Brent Faught, associate professor of Epidemiology, was interviewed by the St. Catharines Standard about his study that found the more ice time hockey players had, the fewer body-to-body collisions there were.

Researchers, Faught is quoted as saying, speculate that with a smaller roster, players “feel the increased physical demand…to perform at a high level,” which may lead them to consciously conserve their energy. The article appeared in the Standard and Owen Sound Sun Times on Dec. 28, and the Niagara Falls Review on Dec. 29.
