Ferland suffered a concussion on Oct. 30 before returning for parts of two games over the past week. While he hadn’t been officially diagnosed with another concussion as of Thursday, the 27-year-old has been experiencing concussion-related symptoms.
“He’s seeing specialists,” Canucks coach Travis Green said of Ferland via Sportsnet’s Iain MacIntyre. “Health is, for us, the No. 1 priority for Ferly. He’s not in the (concussion) protocol. He’s got some symptoms that he doesn’t feel perfect, and he’s still seeing some specialists to find out exactly what’s going on. It’s symptoms, but he hasn’t suffered a concussion.”
The Swan River, Man., native has one goal and five points in 14 games for the Canucks this season after joining Vancouver in July on a four-year deal with an AAV of $3.5 million.
