He didn’t have to block that shot.  The Flyers were up 3-0 and dominating the game.

Nonetheless, best wishes on a speedy recovery, Ian.

There is no such thing as a “mild” concussion. Ask any doctor.

Is a mild concussion kinda like the good hodgkins?

I feel real sorry for he and his wife after watching his post-game comments after this happened.
