For those of you that missed the game tonight, Hemsky left midway through the game with what looked to be a concussion.
Buzz around the internet is that it might not have been one that was suffered tonight. Principe first tweeted this:
“Latest on Hemsky concussion may not have happened tonight..tried talking to him Sunday he didn’t feel well.so this could go back game or two.”
Dan Tencer also jumped on the story with: “Renney says Hemsky was ‘out of sorts’…sounds like he had some symptoms heading in that they thought he could play with.”
So how long as he been playing with concussion symptoms? Better yet, why have they been playing him if he was suffering those symptoms? Are we still pushing for a playoff spot? Yah, I didn’t think so.
So does this make the Hemsky poll question a bit more relevant?
With some other injury updates… Dubnyk was absent for tonights game due to the flu. Horcoff sounds like he’s getting a lot closer and should be back soon. Eberle doesn’t sound far off, but he mentioned he was still feeling some pain, so I’d have to think he’s still got a bit before he’s feeling 100% again. I’m kind of hoping that they just hold off until after the all star break, and don’t rush him back.
