This action sports case takes place in New York and involves an injury sustained by a college athlete during a hockey drill. The plaintiff is a male student who was playing as goalie on his college’s varsity hockey team. On the day in question, the coach ran a practice drill where the players were instructed to shoot pucks into the goal one after another while the plaintiff was not wearing protective gear. At one point, the student was concerned for his safety and asked the coach to stop the drill. However, the coach dismissed his concerns and continued coaching with the exercise. Eventually, one of the pucks hit the student in the head, and he now suffers from permanent brain damage.
