from Chuck Gormley of the CourierPost,
Flyers’ Ian Laperriere has been told by two doctors that he should end his 15-year NHL career because of post-concussion symptoms and nerve damge, the Courier-Post has learned.
RW Laperriere, 36, visited with Pittsburgh neurosurgeon Joseph Maroon on Friday and it was determined that the puck he took above his right eye caused nerve damage behind the eye that could be permanently affected if he continues playing. A Philadelphia doctor offered a similar opinion on Monday, Laperriere said.
