Fox 17’s Amorose: Griffins defenseman Adam Almquist has a concussion thanks to Panik hit

Regardless of what you may think about Richard Panik's hit on Adam Almquist, its result was perhaps predictable given that Almquist neither returned to the game between Panik's Syracuse Crunch and Almquist's Grand Rapids Griffins nor practiced today, and Fox 17's Steve Amorose reports that Almquist did not "stay down" because he was "diving" or trying to milk a penalty:

Grand Rapids Griffins Defenseman Adam Almquist may sit out the potential Calder Cup-winning game on Friday because of a concussion he sustained during Game 3 of the series.

According to Almquist, he blacked out after a hit by Syracuse Right Wing Richard Panik.

No official decision will be made until Friday, but Almquist said he doesn’t expect to play.  If so, Brett Skinner will return to the lineup to fill his place.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
