REPORT: Malkin experiencing concussion like symptoms. GIF here.

Rob Rossi had it this morning:

Evgeni Malkin is experiencing concussion symptoms, including severe headache and mild disorientation, multiple sources confirmed Saturday.
Malkin was injured early in the third period of the Penguins’ win over Florida at Consol Energy Center on Friday.
He did not finish the game after sliding into the end-zone boards. The back of his head appeared to bounce off the boards, and Malkin’s neck snapped back in a seeming whiplash motion.

The head snapping back at the end there is really bad. We don't know the number of concussions Malkin has had in his career. Purely from memory, we don't believe he has suffered one in the NHL. If anyone has that info, send it our way.

In the meantime, yikes. And if you believe in such things as the curse of the Blue Jersey becoming a reality: First Crosby, now Malkin. Also, Jordan Staal suffered a knee injury last year while wearing the Blues.
