The Vancouver Canucks got a scare earlier this month when Alex Burrows suffered a concussion while playing for Team Canada in the 2012 IIHF World Championships. Although the 2012-13 campaign is still months away, it’s hard to put a timetable on a concussion.
“Every day has been really good for him since the initial play,” Canadian coach Brent Sutter said. “Since then he’s been good.”
Burrows did not end up reporting any post-concussion symptoms and he’s fine to resume playing for Team Canada in the tournament.
This is the first time that Burrows has ever played for Team Canada on the international stage. He went undrafted and had to work his way up from the ECHL.
Burrows’ four-year/$8 million contract runs through the 2012-13 campaign. After that, he’ll probably get a sizable raise.
