Steven Stamkos will miss Canada’s next game at the IIHF World Hockey Championship with a possible concussion.
The star forward suffered the injury during Wednesday’s 4-1 loss to Switzerland when he got elbowed in the jaw during a collision with defenceman Timo Helbling. Stamkos sat out the entire third period of the game and will be kept on the sidelines for precautionary reasons when Canada plays again Friday.
“I think it’s just a protocol that you follow when someone has the symptoms that he had,” said Canadian GM Mark Messier. “It’s not a blunt blow to the head, that kind of concussion. It’s a different kind when you get hit in the jaw. There’s still a protocol to follow and we’re going to do that because it’s the right thing to do.”
