Great Story from Canada on NHL drafted player that knows his Floorball

Interview with Cristiano DiGiacinto, 170th pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft

"Q: How were you introduced to floorball?
A: Hockey Canada Skills Academy. I started really getting into floorball in grade 9 at Sherwood Secondary School. It’s been in Hamilton for a really long time. There’s kids in grades 7 and 8 who were already playing in elementary school tournaments, including myself.

Q: What was your first impression of floorball? Did you enjoy it right off the start? Did you pick it up quickly?
A: I found it easy to pick up. I played ballhockey too so I found it to be very similar. I really liked the experience."

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.
