Found November 08, 2013 on NHL Injury News:
The New York Rangers lost winger Taylor Pyatt in Thursday nights game after he took an elbow to the head from the Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Fedor Tyutin. He did not return to the game, this per the Bergen Record. Although it was not labeled as such, the indications would be that it will be listed as an upper body injury. Tyutin did receive a two-minute elbowing penalty for the hit. The 32 year old Pyatt has had a history of head injuries. In 2008, and in 2003 he had two injuries that were openly labeled as concussions. He also suffered from what were labeled as upper-body injuries. There was no word on how serious this injury may be. The Rangers already have serious problems as Rick Nash is suffering from a head injury. No one would say Pyatt is as  significant to the Rangers as Nash is, yet it’s still a concern for the players health.
