BLOG: Eakins: Fasth not concussed

by Chris Wescott / Edmonton Oilers

It was a scary moment at Oilers practice on Monday as Viktor Fasth collided with Anton Lander during a rush. Fasth remained still on the ice for quite some time while being attended to by the team’s training staff.

The response by the staff was quick and after several minutes of attention, Fasth was up and being helped off the ice. Despite appearing woozy on his skate off the ice, it is not believed to be a concussion per Head Coach Dallas Eakins.

“I didn’t see it,” Eakins said. “He got driven into the net off a rush and banged his head. He wasn’t concussed or anything but I guess sprained his neck. He’s going to go see the docs and if we have to call someone up, we will.”

The two options in Oklahoma City currently are Richard Bachman and Laurent Brossoit. Bachman has played in 42 games with OKC, posting a 20-17-4 record and a 3.08 goals against average and .907 save percentage. Brossoit, 21, has had a stellar ECHL campaign but has played just eight games with the Barons, recording a 3.60 GAA and .888 save percentage.
