Joel Armia Suffers From Concussion Symptoms For Second Time This Season

Richard Wolowicz

The young Sabres prospect is suffering from concussion symptoms after a cheap shot to the head.

Joel Armia has already put up 9-4-13 in 22 games this year for Porin Assat, but the most important number for the young winger may be two, the number of possible concussion he's had this season.

Reports have come out from the Porin Assat website and the NHL's Director of European Scouting that Joel Armia has suffered a concussion after a cheap shot to the head in Saturday's game.

Though no timetable has been given for his return, it's bad enough news for Sabres fans considering that this is Armia's second concussion of the year; Sabresprospects.com reported back in October that Armia missed a game after suffering from "a mild concussion." If this were to become a recurring problem, it would spell big trouble for the 19-year old winger's career.

You can view a video of the cheap shot - which rings of the cheap shot Chris Neil put on Chris Drury back in 2007 - below.
