Patrick Eaves is getting closer to returning from from a concussion he suffered against the Nashville Predators on Nov. 26, 2011. Eaves has been showing symptoms of the concussion he suffered when he was hit in the face by a puck shot by Roman Josi for some time. While he continues to recover, it looks like a return to training camp is unlikely:
Patrick Eaves skated, said he has good days and bad days. The headaches are fewer and further apart, but not certain to be ready for camp.— Ansar Khan (@AnsarKhanMLive) September 4, 2012
Eaves had one assist while playing in 10 games last season for the Red Wings, but he has not played since the game in which he sustained the concussion. He had 13 goals when he played the full 2010-11 season.
