On Monday, the Bergen Record’s Tom Gulitti spoke with the New Jersey Devils and got updates on two concussion related injuries.
Regarding Ryane Clowe, it was a good news bad news situation. Per GM Lou Lamoriello on Twitter, he admitted to Gulitti that he always has concerns when a player like Clowe has a history of head injuries and being out long term. On the bright side, he believes that Clowe, 31, “absolutely” feels better now that he is working out again.
Lamoriello said, “If he didn’t feel better, he couldn’t be doing anything”. As for Jonathon Merrill, there is a concern that he may have suffered a concussion thanks to his fall on Sunday into the boards. Though the 21 year old did pass the baseline tests last night. “We’re having him examined today,” said Lamoriello. “He’s fine. He came back with us. All the tests done were good, but he got a pretty good jolt.”
No matter, the Devils are hurting, but they don’t play again til Thursday, so they have a little time to heal up
