Perron to Miss Start of Season

It doesn’t appear that David Perron will be on the ice for the start of the 2011-2012 season. According to the organization, David is still suffering from post-concussion symptoms due to the hit he took from Joe Thornton back in Novemember. While Doug Armstrong admitted that he has made great progress, he feels there’s still a lot of work to be done and that there’s not enough time to get that work done by the start of the season. It was also made known that David hasn’t even started to really work out. Doug Armstrong said, “”Not only is he going to have to get his skating legs back, he’s going to have to get his body back in NHL shape. With that is going to come his puck skills, his hands and timing. There’s going to be a process that he’s going to have to go through once he does get medically cleared to do the physical training. ” It’s great to know that the team is taking the right course in getting Perron back in to shape. It’s just a shame that the length of time to do so is unknown at this point.
