McLellan Improving But Still Dealing With Concussion Symptoms

from David Pollak of Working The Corners,

Sharks coach Todd McLellan said today that he continues to deal with concussion symptoms almost a week after being whacked on the head by an errant hockey stick during a game in Minnesota.

“There’s times I feel really good, and then a lot of motion and movement makes it hard for one to focus a little bit,” McLellan said, “but I am getting better every day.”

It was the first time McLellan has talked about the experience that has caused him to miss two games behind the bench. His status for tonight’s contest against the St. Louis Blues is uncertain, though the coach said he expected to return to his role “very soon, very soon.”

McLellan also said he had a better appreciation of what players go through when they deal with head injuries.

“I was one of those guys that stated we probably all played with them and we’ve all had them in the past,” he said, “but until you really get cracked and feel the way I’ve felt over the last five or six days, you tend to lose that opinion quickly.”
