Ice hockey is a dangerous, fast-paced game.  Sticks and pucks can cause serious injury, even death.  Collisions are part of the game.  Protective gear, if properly sized, used and maintained, may reduce the occurrence of such injuries but in no way guarantees that injuries will not occur.  Always play by the rules.  Use the appropriate gear.  In the event of an injury, do not attempt to continue playing in the game.  The individual assumes all risks of engaging in this game.
