Do teams have to be honest about location of injury?  For example, Datsyuk has a super top secret 'lower body injury'.  But is it really lower body or is it his concussion again?


I'm curious what the league reporting rules are on injuries, I thought it was something like if it happens in your lower body that is all you have to say.

I don't think they have to be honest.  There is a lot of misdirection when it comes to injuries.  You don't want your opponent to know your weakness.  People will do anything to win.


For instance, I believe NBC said Gustavsson just returned from a neck injury, while I heard it was his groin again.

They don't have to be honest. There is no rule in hockey management

I wasn't sure what the rule was, perhaps during the playoffs they have to report it accurately then?


That being said, the Datsyuk injury is a real concern, I think he has Post Concussion Symptoms.
