In brief: Similar to football

Like other high energy contact collision sports, hockey players sustain typical muscles strains (hamstring/quadriceps), ligament sprains (major knee ligaments), shoulder subluxation/dislocations, hip injuries, contusions from puck or collision contact, ocassional bone fractures, and lacerations of any exposed skin (facial area).
