“Education is key in the battle against concussions,” Rosen said.
Rosen played on amateur hockey teams during his teens. He sustained a leg injury during a hockey game as a youth. The resulting damage, infections and pain to his leg plagued him for years until his lower leg was amputated at age 39. Rosen mastered the game of sledge hockey, becoming goalie for Canada’s national team from 2000 until he retired just after the Vancouver Paralympics in 2010, at age 50. Rosen was in 3 Paralympics, and five world championships. Rosen reports that he suffered 9 concussions during his professional career. Currently, Rosen is a motivational speaker and leading Ambassador for stopconcussions.com.
