          Abstract

          We describe two recent deaths in 15-year-old male ice hockey players. Both adolescents died of commotio cordis from chest impacts by ice hockey pucks despite their use of commercially designed and manufactured chest protectors. Commotio cordis is discussed as a preventable sports-related injury in the adolescent age group, and the need for improved chest protective equipment in preventing such injuries is also examined.
