Corey Crawford Has Post-Concussion Syndrome

From Sportsnet:

Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford is likely suffering from post-concussion syndrome, not vertigo, according to Scotty Bowman, a senior adviser with the club.

On Tuesday multiple reports claimed that the 33-year-old Crawford could miss the remainder of the season with vertigo-like symptoms.

“It’s not what they’re reporting,” Bowman said Wednesday evening during Prime Time Sports on Sportsnet 590 The FAN. “Now, apparently what he really has is post-concussion syndrome.”

Crawford was placed on injured reserve Dec. 27 with what the team dubbed an upper-body injury. The goalie suffered a blow to the head during a game in late November when Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin collided with him. Crawford was assessed before returning in the same game and it’s unknown if that incident is related to his current injury.
