Zacha has a concussion

Recommended Posts

Didn't see it posted anywhere so sorry if it was.

Hopefully it's only one game but we all know these can be dangerous.

Zacha is out for at least Saturday’s game against the Rangers at Prudential Center. However, the plan is for him to do off-ice work on Friday – stationary bicycle – and then perhaps for the next few days. Zacha did not work out on Thursday.

Shut him down for the rest of the season,  No reason to rush him back and maybe have a set back

Depends what grade it is, I would think.

That's sucks big time. He's really been finding his game of late. He's also one of the only things that make watching this team interesting to me right now.

fvck.  Hopefully it's not a serious one.  I'm assuming Bennett now re-joins the lineup.  I would slot him right into his spot on the 3rd line too.

This blows.  His development has been one of the few fun things to watch with this team lately.

Ugh, not good news... any clue what hit it Was? He's been banging with the big boys the last few games.

He took a check from behind in his last game. It wasn't a big hit but it was probably a minor penalty. Zacha didn't brace himself well and hit visor first into the wall. 

Luckily this seems minor minor for a concussion since they're allowing him some light workout already.

Shut him down for the year. No point messing around with concussions. Plus, wouldn't want him becoming concussion prone in the future because he was rushed back to play meaningless games this season.
