The article presents a study which examines whether chronological age within the 2-year age bands of Canadian youth ice hockey players influences the proportion of injury. It states that a retrospective secondary analysis was carried out with the use of data from the Canadian Hospitals Injury Reporting and Prevention Program (CHIRPP) having 4,736 injured players aged 10-15 years old. The result suggests that constituent year may help in determining injury risk.
