When Does A Player Go To The Quiet Room?

from Darren Dreger of TSN,

Chicago Blackhawks defenceman Brent Seabrook took a Justin Abdelkader elbow to the head in the third period of Sunday’s 4-3 loss to the Detroit Red Wings.

Seabrook dropped like a rock.

He didn’t stay down for long, but he went down hard. So either he was stung by the elbow or he may have been trying to draw a penalty.

Teams are expected to remove players if the player displays balance issues, lack of coordination, is disoriented, clutches his head, has a visible facial injury or is slow to get up following a hit to the head.
