After Suffering Two Prior Concussion Victor Hedman Sensitive To Shots To The Head

Philadelphia Flyers forward Scott Hartnell delivered an illegal hit to the head on Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman which resulted in a 2-minute penalty. Hedman was visibly frustrated immediately afterward as he left the ice.

Hedman has suffered two concussions so a hit to the head is something that he is much more sensitive to. After the game he said that he was not feeling any ill effects from the hit.

Despite not leaving his feet Hartnell may face disciplinary action from the league.
