Sutter recalled as LaRose to be evaluated for concussion

Posted March 3, 2013

— Brett Sutter was recalled from Charlotte Sunday and will join the Carolina Hurricanes for their game against the Florida Panthers.

LaRose remained in Raleigh following the win over the Panthers to be further evaluated for concussion-like symptoms.

    Dang, hope LaRose is isn't as fun to watch without him. I thought it would be Nash out instead. It was a rough game last night...expect to see more of the same in about an hour.

    I don't know, but I saw on Sports Night that they called the hit on Skinner "clean". Makes you wonder. Hope Rosey is OK.

    First Skinner, now LaRose with concussions. First, I hope there are no long-term effects for both and hope Rosey makes it back soon. Second, how many penalty minutes were assessed from the hits that caused the concussion (or possible concussion). NONE! Was at both games and saw both hits (althought Skinner got slammed into the boards twice and no penalties or suspensions were handed out. Seems like the NHL is inconsistent with their rules and how the follow them!
