Phillip Danault showing signs of concussion after being struck in head
Canadiens announced Monday that the centre's condition would be evaluated daily
The Montreal Canadiens say centre Phillip Danault has symptoms of a concussion after being struck on the head by a puck.
The team said in a statement Monday that Danault's condition will be evaluated daily.
The 24-year-old was hit on the side of the head by a rising point shot from Boston defenceman Zdeno Chara late in the second period of the Bruins' 4-3 shootout win in Montreal on Saturday night.
He lay on the ice for several minutes receiving treatment from medical staff before being taken off on a stretcher. He spent the night in hospital before being released the next morning.
The Canadiens also announced forward Andrew Shaw suffered a lower-body injury Saturday. He's out indefinitely and will be re-evaluated in seven-to-10 days.
Down two centres, the club claimed centre/right-winger Logan Shaw, no relation, on waivers from the Anaheim Ducks.
