Exactly how long White will be out isn't so certian, according to the Mercury News:
"At this present time, I would say no," coach Todd McLellan when asked about the likelihood White would be able to play.
"It's our job," the coach added later, "to put players in situations where they can succeed and you can't do that if you're not healthy and alert. He has to prove to us as a coaching staff and a training staff that he can do that. We all know the protocol now for head injuries. When he and the training staff march into my offce and tells us he's ready to go, he's that important and he'll play."
McLellan refused to call White's injury a concussion, although all signs point in that direction. White won't be allowed to retrun until he gets a doctor's clearance, McLellan said.
White’s head bounded off the boards on the collision, which occurred with 25 seconds left in the first period of the Sharks’ 3-2 overtime victory in Game 1 of the first-round series on Thursday. White suffered a bloody nose on the play and appeared dazed as he was helped to the locker room by Sharks medical personnel. Here’s a look at the collision.
“Obviously, I’m disappointed and upset with the decision," Stoll told reporters (via Rich Hammond of L.A. Kings Insider.) I don’t want to miss any games, whether it’s regular season or especially the playoffs. I’m really disappointed with the decision but I respect it, and I respect Colin’s decision, to do what he did and give me the game.”
Stoll had a conference call earlier Friday with league disciplinarian Colin Campbell.
"I just explained what I was thinking and what I did and the play," Stoll said. "I was honest with them. I told them what I thought, and I think that was the best way to go about it.”
