Brayden Schenn (no supplementary discipline to Wilson); Lecavalier update (12/19)

Edit: December 17 (Tuesday)

No new news to report, but Brayden Schenn was injured on a hit by Tom Wilson of the Capitals on December 17th and did not return to the game. The hit occurred in the second period and Wilson was assessed a five minute major for charging.

Paul Holmgren has issued a statement confirming that Schenn has an upper body injury.


Edit: December 19 (Thursday)

Schenn underwent X-rays to check his neck and back for fractures. He did not undergo a concussion baseline test, despite the obvious head trauma. He said that's because he did not feel any symptoms once he made it to the locker room.

"I felt fine as soon as I got off the ice," Schenn said. "I don't have any symptoms or anything like that. I didn't see stars. I didn't feel slow. I didn't have any headaches.

"I've had concussions before; I know what they're like. I had it a month at a time [in December 2011]. I didn't have any symptoms."

Schenn did not appear to lose consciousness for any length of time following the hit. He still could have suffered a concussion on the play, which makes it surprising the Flyers did not at least mandate a baseline test. According to online medical encyclopedias, amnesia (memory loss) is one of the primary determinants of a concussion.

“I feel I got really lucky,” Schenn said. “I don’t think I have ever gone head first into the boards without even getting my arms up or anything like that. I don’t remember much of the play. All I remember was how hard the top of my head actually hit the board. And I don’t remember trying to get up or anything bad. But the good thing is I don’t have a headache or any symptoms today, so that’s a positive sign.”

Wednesday morning he had a text message from Wilson, apologizing for the hit.

“He reached out to me, and I appreciated the text,” Schenn said. “There is nothing more.”
