Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Noah Hanifin out indefinitely with a concussion. With Carolina all but out of the playoffs he could very well be kept out for the rest of the season.

According to studies regarding concussions in the NHL, of the 529 instances of concussion for which information on time loss was recorded, 69% (363/529) missed up to 10 days of unrestricted competition, whereas 31% (166/529) missed more than 10 days because of their concussion. The percentage of instances of concussion that resulted in more than 10 days of time loss ranged from 19% to 43% per season. Watch below our 3D animation to learn more about concussions:
