Despite lack of evidence, proponents of bodychecking argue that it is a fundamental skill which, learned early, may prevent future injuries. However, the evidence supports that bodychecking is the most common mechanism of injury. Hockey is recognized as a high-risk sport. The speed of play, body contact and bodychecking all contribute to injury risk. Policy allowing bodychecking was found to be a risk factor for all hockey injuries, with a summary incidence rate ratio IRR of 2. Furthermore, policy allowing bodychecking was found to be a risk factor for concussion, with a summary OR of 1.
These data confirm that bodychecking increases the risk of all injuries and the risk of concussion specifically. Since the publication of these systematic reviews there have been five additional studies. A Canadian prospective cohort study compared injury rates between peewee ice hockey players in a league where bodychecking is permitted at age 11 years Alberta versus players in a league where bodychecking is not permitted until age 13 Quebec.
A second prospective cohort study by Emery et al examined whether the introduction of bodychecking at 11 years of age Alberta or 13 years of age Quebec affected injury rates in later years at 13 to 14 years of age. In fact, the concussion rate found in Alberta peewee players was higher than in bantam players in either province.
Injury rates among boys presenting to emergency departments in the Kingston, Ontario area both before and after the rule change to allow bodychecking in younger players, were reported. There was no change between bodychecking injury rates in to with bodychecking introduced at 11 years of age and to when bodychecking was introduced at nine years of age. In contrast, retrospective research of CHIRPP data from to in five Ontario hospitals examined injury risk following a rule change in that allowed bodychecking in nine- and year-old hockey players.
There was a 2. Most studies examining age found that injury risk increased with age;     others suggest no elevated injury risk in older age groups. Based on session-type, injury risk is reported to be consistently higher in games than in practices, with RR estimates ranging from 2. In general, studies examining level of play have found that injury risks rise with increasing skill levels across all age groups. When examining player position, some researchers found that forwards were at higher risk of injury than defencemen or goalies,   while others reported the relative risk of injury was 2.
Additional research shows a consistent protective effect for goalies at both the peewee and bantam levels. Research on player size has shown conflicting results, with some studies citing increased risk for smaller players in some age groups. Prospective Canadian data show a significantly greater risk of injury in peewee players in the lowest 25th percentile by weight,  though this finding was not reflected in the bantam cohort.
By contrast, a history of previous injury or concussion is consistently reported as a significant risk factor for reinjury and further concussion, respectively.
