Avalanche Player Set To Return

One of the multiple Colorado Avalanche players to suffer a concussion will be returning after nearly three months.  Kyle Cuminskey has been out since October 30, after being elbowed into the boards.  What was initially termed a mild concussion has led to a long road to recovery.  However, he is symptom-free and excited to be back.

Cumiskey, who will wear a new helmet with thicker padding, suffered the injury when he was elbowed into the boards against the Blue Jackets. He never lost consciousness but said he endured headaches “every day” for several weeks.

“Finally it cleared up and I started doing some exercises without symptoms, so I knew I was better,” he said.
“Concussions can be scary. You never know if you’re going to be back in a week or, in my case, over two months.”
