I hope he is able to recover fully, but it is certainly worth it for him, to take more time if needed.
It may have been reported otherwise, but I think he only had one. He got the concussion against WAS during the winter classic, and he was kept in the lineup (or brought back before he should have been) and took another hit less than a week later from Hedman. So I think it was just one concussion that increased in severity due to mistreatment.
