Description

Background: Little is known about the association between training and game load, and injuries and illnesses in junior elite ice hockey.

Purpose: The aim of this study was to investigate the association between training and game load, and injuries and illnesses in junior elite ice hockey.

Methods: This was a prospective cohort study monitoring all health problems among 206 junior ice hockey players at WANG and NTG (sport-specific high schools) during a school year. Players reported all injuries and illnesses every week during the school year 2818/2019 using Oslo Sports Trauma Research Center Questionnaire on Health Problems (OSTRC-H2). The number of games and trainings was reported for 31 weeks.
