OTTAWA — Hayley Wickenheiser, who suffered an upper body injury in Canada’s first game of the tournament against rivals United States, finally returned to the line up to beat Russia in the semi-final round Monday….
Karolina Urban remembers most of the game. It was the last of her 2008-09 season. As captain of the University of Toronto women’s hockey team, she followed the puck on the ice. “The puck popped out and I got it,” she said. “The girl … just smoked me so hard that I twisted in the air before I landed.” That was Urban’s first concussion. She has suffered two since. They haven’t discouraged her.
