NHL Concussion Report 12/12/10 UPDATED

This is the list of current players on the injured list for concussions or suspected head injuries (^=new);

  • Shaone Morrisonn, BUF
  • Raitis Ivanans, CAL
  • Viktor Stalberg, CHI^
  • Peter Mueller, COL
  • Kyle Cumiskey, COL
  • Nick Schultz, MIN^
  • Matthew Lombardi, NAS
  • Bryce Salvador, NJ
  • Derek Boogaard, NYR^
  • Ian Laperriere, PHI
  • Kurt Sauer, PHX
  • David Perron, STL
  • Andy McDonald, STL

Two new addition this week that brings the total concussions to 40 thus far.  The addition of Boogaard is based on reports from the New York Post via this blog post.  Again another shining example of how concussions are missed/not reported in the NHL.  Too many “undisclosed” or “upper body” listings.  Maybe the NHL should look at this to uncover the real story?

UPDATE 12/22: Viktor Stalberg was outed in a local media report in Chicago.  Case in point.
