, “I wish I could give you a timetable, but it’s pretty much day to day and make sure I’m symptom free before I start exercising again,” Bouchard said. “I’m positive I can come back. The only bad thing about concussions is you don’t know how much time it’s going to take.”
Bouchard said it’s a fast game and accidents will happen, but he wishes there was more respect on the ice (talking about Bogosian hit and others). He joins a laundry list of NHLers, including several top ones like Sidney Crosby and Marc Savard and Chris Pronger, sidelined by concussions.
Bouchard said he’ll be patient and make sure he’s 100 percent before he starts working out. He said he also suffered whiplash, so his neck is stiff.
“I have a special helmet that’s supposed to help against concussions and my mouthguard, that’s supposed to be better and help you if you get hit. So I guess I took all the precautions that I could, but I guess it wasn’t enough.”
