Jonna Curtis, New Hampshire hockey player, missed the bulk of this past season with an injury for the second straight year.
The same injury, broken collarbone, occurred when she was checked into the boards in a game against Boston College, the same team that knocked her out last year. She said it seemed like “cheap shots” both times.
The Elks’ all-time points leader and Ms. Hockey finalist played just five games in 2012-13, notching two goals and four assists. In August, Curtis had another injury, missed the start of this season and played in 11 games, with two goals and one assist, before getting hurt again.
“This isn’t what I wanted for my first two years,” Curtis said, when contacted by the Star News, adding that she probably didn’t give the injury enough time to fully heal, and now has a steel plate inserted. “But I can start skating next week. I will play the next three years.”
