N.H.L. Commissioner Gary Bettman Continues to Deny C.T.E. Link

Responding to written questions from a United States senator about the effects of concussions in hockey, N.H.L. Commissioner Gary Bettman continued to deny a link between concussions and the brain disease chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or C.T.E. He blamed the news media for fanning fear of the long-term effects of head injuries and defended the N.H.L.'s "more measured approach" to the growing science of concussions.
