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.

I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
