Nilsson (concussion) has yet to fully recover and continues to suffer from concussion symptoms, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

In 20 appearances for Ottawa last year, the 29-year-old netminder went 9-9-2 with a career-worst 3.18 GAA. Combined with his health concerns, it shouldn't come as a shock to see Ottawa pursuing other options between the pipes.
