So your favourite National Hockey League player suffers a concussion, and suddenly you’re inundated with talk of concussion protocols and baseline tests and quiet rooms. And you are sad, on top of all that.

Well, imagine you are said player trying to come back from a brain-rattling collision. Not only do you feel pretty awful, you know you have some hoops to jump through before you can ever hit the ice again. One of those is the Sport Concussion Assessment Tool 2.

The league is currently trying to get a lawsuit by the family of late NHL enforcer Derek Boogaard dismissed, and among the documents the NHL filed earlier this month is its own version of the SCAT2. If your memory is as bad as mine even at peak readiness, you might be a little concerned about making your way through it under pressure and on the heels of a concussion.
