Wild’s Stewart Has Concussion
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) _ Cam Stewart of the Minnesota Wild spent a night in the hospital after losing consciousness at his home following a concussion.
The left wing sustained a concussion Tuesday night during a 4-2 loss to Edmonton. He underwent a CT scan and was kept for observation Wednesday night.
``After what happened, it made (Stewart) nervous and he called the doctors,″ said Tom Lynn, the Wild’s director of hockey administration. ``These are effects that can occur with a concussion and is consistent with the early diagnoses.″
Stewart is out indefinitely and the soonest he might return is eight to 10 days. Lynn said he must pass the NHL’s neurological test before he can return.
He was injured with 10:58 left in the third period. Stewart appeared to be knocked unconscious on a hit near the red line. Edmonton’s Scott Ferguson delivered what Wild coach Jacques Lemaire called a clean check, while Stewart was looking down for the puck.
Stewart was motionless on the ice for several minutes before being helped off.
