Concussion and sports go hand in hand

The class-action concussion lawsuit former NHL players filed in 2016 is close to being settled for $18.9 million, according to Forbes' Mike Ozanian. The players would get $6.9 million as a group, which is $22,000 per player.

In an email obtained by Forbes, the law firm representing the former players recommends that its clients accept the league's settlement offer.

Dan Carcillo, who played in 429 NHL games, is one of more than 100 former players involved in the lawsuit. Carcillo led the league in penalty minutes twice and suffered numerous concussions during his career.

In March, he talked about his reasons for joining the lawsuit.

So apparently hockey and football causes concussions, which we know may lead to CTE. Contact sports causes concussions. 

That's a fact.
