Taylor Hall isn’t dealing with post-concussion symptoms after taking Calgary’s Cory Sarich’s elbow to his head during Friday’s game. Hall did suffer a momentary loss of consciousness following the collision, but he said he felt fine on Saturday and he was “pretty much normal” on Sunday. Still, Edmonton is erring on the side of caution.
“We’re going to follow protocol, no question,” said Oilers head coach Tom Renney. “There are steps in place for us to follow and allow the medical people to give us the right information, we’re not going to guess on this.”
Hall will be tested by riding a stationary bike to see how he responds to the exercise. If all goes well, the next step after that would be participating in an Oilers’ practice and eventually taking part in contact drills. His plan is to take things day-by-day and hope that he’ll feel just as good Monday as he did Sunday.
