    • Concussion Ends Career For Former Canuck Alberts

      News: Andrew Alberts has no intention to resume his playing career after he continues to deal with the effects of a concussion suffered Dec. 29, 2013, reports.
      Analysis: Thirteen months after sustaining the head injury, Andrew Alberts said he's first starting to experience some relief from the headaches, but doesn't want to put his long-term health at risk by returning to professional hockey. He had previously aimed to return to the ice last spring after noticing improvement in his condition, only to suffer a setback shortly thereafter. The 33-year-old defenseman will end his career with 55 points over 459 NHL games spent with the Bruins, Flyers, Hurricanes, and Canucks.

      Analysis: Though Andrew Alberts was able to skate with the team for their last practice of the season, it was mostly just a good faith gesture on the Canucks' part for the soon-to-be free agent. Alberts will turn 33 this summer, and considering the lack of impact he made even when healthy, the defenseman is sure to receive little interest from teams while he remains dogged by the concussion. His NHL career could very well be over.
