Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the CP at The Hockey News,
There was no quiet room for Colby Armstrong. No imPACT test, either.
The Toronto Maple Leafs didn’t have a chance to follow any of the guidelines set out in the NHL’s concussion protocol because they were unaware the forward was even experiencing symptoms until almost 48 hours after the collision that caused them.
Armstrong was injured during Saturday night’s game against Vancouver but didn’t let the team’s medical staff know he was feeling nauseous until Monday afternoon.
“It took us all by complete shock because we had no idea that he had his bell rung the other night,” Leafs coach Ron Wilson said after Monday’s 3-2 shootout loss to Los Angeles. “He kind of kept that from us.”
