Granted, but the assumption is that this is a recurrence of concussion symptoms. If that's the case, I don't think its that big a leap (with a little general medical knowledge, and none about Backes' case in particular).

You can use Crosby's situation from a couple years ago as the synonymous example.

With luck he just has a headache and muscle soreness and will be back soon. But if these are concussion symptoms again, I expect at least a few weeks out.
Is this just speculation or have you actually heard something?

It's all speculation at this point for Captain America, but it makes you want that dreaded "upper body injury" comment.

Andronov was just sent back down (again).

Has to be a good sign for Captain America right?

I think he was up when it looked iffy whether Sobotka and Roy could go. Since they're both back in, (even with no Backes) no need for Andronov. I draw no conclusion about Backes' injury status from this move, unfortunately.

He will obviously be recalled tomorrow just to troll him some more about nhl playing time.

Dan O'Neill just tweeted, "For those who are speculating otherwise, the Backes injury is not concussion-related"

That doesn't necessarily mean it's not a long term injury, but at least it's not a concussion...

I thought he hurt his shoulder on that hard hit just before he came out after a cut-off 15 second shift (his last) just before the end of regulation. If so, it's already been X-rayed. And, because it has not been announced that he'll be out a long period, I'm guessing that he shouldn't be out more than a few more games.

Hopefully he's not rushed back against the Kings just to get hurt again. I'd be fine sitting him until the 7th to keep him healthy.

That is fantastic news! A shoulder can be a bad problem too, and moreso for a guy like Backes who plays such a physical game.

I suspected shoulder problems last season, but to my knowledge nothing was confirmed or reported. Anyone have any better information whether this is a recurrent thing?

Anyway, very good news.

David Backes is not missing the Olympics unless he can't even get out of bed.

And this isn't a long-term injury so that's good.

I think they just wanted to give him some rest so he doesn't make a minor injury worse and to give some other guys some playing time.
