After a month out of action, James Reimer is on his way back into the lineup after 'concussion-like' symptoms. Around the league, some kid in Pittsburgh made his debut on Monday night and in New York Marc Staal is on his way back from his own concussion. It's heartening for a couple of former NHLers that had their careers short by concussions:
"Sidney’s long-term outcome looks a lot more promising than it would have even last year," said LaFontaine, who scored 468 goals from 1983 to 1998 with the Islanders, Sabres and Rangers. "With all the new rules the N.H.L. has put in this season under Brendan Shanahan to cut down on checks to the head and neck area, we know Sidney Crosby doesn’t have to take those kinds of hits again."
