Read: The Sauer Brothers and Concussions

Michael Sauer has been out with a concussion since December 5th and John Tortorella said earlier this week that he can’t just count on Sauer to be back for training camp and he almost has to proceed in his planning as if Sauer won’t be back.

Sauer’s brother, Kurt, has been out since 2009 after suffering a concussion/neck injury.

In April 2011, Sarah McLellan wrote about how Sauer was becoming a stay at home dad due to his injury and presence of concussion symptoms.

Jo Innes writes at Backhand Shelf that Sauer is feeling better, after some treatment, and is able to play with his children now.
