Video: Seth Jones suffers ‘concussion-like’ syndrome on Sunday

Mar 23, 2014, 9:06 PM EDT

Nashville Predators defenseman Seth Jones is out for the night with an upper-body injury following a hit by Chicago Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw.

“Popeye” Jones – his father and former NBA player – said that the 19-year-old is suffering from a “concussion-like syndrome,” but the team is only going as far as to say that it’s an upper-body issue.

Here’s video of the collision:

It’s been an up-and-down season for the fourth pick of the 2013 NHL Draft, whom many believed should have gone as high as first overall. He’s experienced some growing pains on a struggling Predators team, yet he’s frequently looked beyond his years, as well.

Shaw wasn’t penalized for the hit. The 22-year-old was suspended for three playoff games back in 2012.

    I think adding Shaw’s prior suspension was a bit unnecessary.

      It is unnecessary, but that’s James O’brien for ya. Worst hockey blogger I’ve seen on the internet.

    I can’t stand ankle biters like Shaw.

      i acually respect them more as long as they arent dirty, they usually are undersized guys who dont have the skill to make it at the next level so they take on a tougher more gritty role to make up for it and take a beating so often as a result, as an undersized guy myself i know how it is to have to play bigger than your size, its real tough and takes a lot of courage, toughness and heart

    That suspension brought to you by a flopping Mike Smith and a “Golly gee, I don’t know if he’ll play next game” Tippett.

    Clean hit by Shaw. Can’t say the same thing about the cross check to the gut by Weber on Versteeg.
