Todd Bertuzzi Still Hasn't Fully Recovered From Game 7 Concussion

It has been two weeks since the Detroit Red Wings lost to the San Jose Sharks in Game 7 of their second-round series. It feels like that game took place a lot longer ago than two weeks, but probably not for Red Wings forward Todd Bertuzzi, who still isn't completely over the concussion he suffered during the game.

"I’m feeling better," Bertuzzi said. "I skated yesterday, worked out today. It’s getting better."

Dan Cleary also suffered a concussion during Game 7, but he was back to normal a couple days later. He seemed to take a much more vicious hit than Bertuzzi did, but his concussion wasn't nearly as severe, as he passed a baseline concussion test five days after suffering the injury.

Bertuzzi is hoping to pass the baseline test he will take again next week. If he does pass it, he will be set to begin full activities related to offseason conditioning.
