AB  - BACKGROUND: The association between diagnosed acute ST-elevation myocardial
      infarction (STEMI) and hockey games in the Canadian population is unknown.
      METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the association between hockey games of the 
      National Hockey League Montreal Canadiens and daily hospital admissions for acute
      STEMI at the Montreal Heart Institute, Canada. RESULTS: Between June 2010 and
      December 2014, a total of 2199 patients (25.9% women; mean age, 62.6 +/- 12.4
      years) were admitted for acute STEMI. An increase in STEMI admissions was
      observed the day after a hockey game of the Montreal Canadiens in the overall
      population (from 1.3 +/- 1.2 to 1.5 +/- 1.3), however, this difference was not
      significant (P = 0.1). The number of STEMI admissions increased significantly
      from 0.9 +/- 1.0 to 1.2 +/- 1.0 per day in men (P = 0.04), but not in women (P = 
      0.7). The association between ice hockey matches and STEMI admission rates was
      strongest after a victory of the Montreal Canadiens. Accordingly, an increased
      risk for the occurrence of STEMI was observed in the overall population (hazard
      ratio [HR], 1.15; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.0-1.3; P = 0.037) when the
      Montreal Canadiens won a match. This association was present in men (HR, 1.2; 95%
      CI, 1.03-1.4; P = 0.02) but not in women (P = 0.87), with a most pronounced
      effect seen in younger men (younger than 55 years; HR, 1.4; 95% CI, 1.1-1.8; P = 
      0.009). CONCLUSIONS: Although a weak association between hockey games and
      hospital admissions for STEMI was found in our overall population, the event of a
      hockey game significantly increased the risk for STEMI in younger men. Preventive
      measures targeting behavioural changes could positively affect this risk.
