by Chris Wescott / Edmonton Oilers

Oilers goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov talked to the media this morning after skating briefly. The goalie is working his way back from 'concussion and whiplash-like symptoms'.

Bryzgalov told a story of when he was a young child, pertaining to a past concussion experience.

"I had a concussion when I was 12 and was hit by a motorcycle," he said. "That was really bad. I was in the hospital. It knocked me down for like, two weeks. (This time is) not as bad as I've had before."
