Physician encourages conservative approach to concussions in teens
By: Dolly A. Butz
Dylan Mills received his first concussion at age 13.
The Cottage Grove, Minnesota, native was playing hockey in Canada when he was struck from behind. The hit sent him flying headfirst into the ice rink’s boards.
“After that, I didn’t remember much,” Mills said while seated in the penalty box at the Tyson Events Center Monday before practice. Mills, now 18 and a Sioux City Musketeer, recently suffered his second and third concussions.
