MONTREALPhiladelphia Flyers defenseman Kent Huskins left Monday's game against the Montreal Canadiens with what the team is reporting to be a concussion after taking a hit from Montreal forward Ryan White.

At 6:11 of the first period, White hit Huskins directly in the jaw with a glancing blow with his shoulder, sending Husking to the Flyers' dressing room under his own power.

White was immediately challenged by Flyers defenseman Kurtis Foster, and he was assessed a major penalty for a hit to the head, a major fighting and a match penalty.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
