Toronto Sun sports writer Lance Hornby offered this update via Twitter:

Ekblad suffered the concussion during an exhibition game against the Czech Republic on Aug. 5 while at Team Canada’s development camp for the 2015 World Junior Hockey Championships.

The Panthers’ first overall selection at the June NHL Draft is expected to be at the team’s camp next month.
