Update: 11/4: 3:29PM: Lindberg is OUT for the Karkala Cup.


Expressen reports that Oscar Lindberg has suffered a likely concussion in today’s 7-3 Skellefteå win over Jesper Fasth’s HV71.

Lindberg was hit hard to the head by HV71′s Per Ledin late in the first period. Ledin was given a 2+10 penalty on the play and, after leaving the ice immediately, Lindberg did not return.

His participation in next week’s Karjala Cup tournament for Sweden is now unlikely.
