NHL Concussion Protocol In Effect


Vernon Fiddler of the Phoenix Coyotes was removed from the ice and bench after a hit that resulted in him becoming ‘dazed’;

“I came in the dressing room, and that’s the protocol now and that’s what the trainer said when I got hit,” Fiddler said. “You like for it to be quiet and not a bunch of action around.”

Burrows received a five-minute major penalty for boarding and a game misconduct.

Fiddler returned to the game less than 10 minutes later.

“They asked me a bunch of questions, just a typical neuro-psyche test, and I just did what I was asked,” Fiddler said. “He just asks you a few questions about the game, what day it is.”
