Good news for Brian Salcido, the Ducks defenseman prospect from Hermosa Beach, who returned to the AHL’s Manitoba Moose over the weekend after missing six games with a concussion.
“It was pretty painful sitting out, there were so many games over such a short time,” said Salcido, who is one of two Anaheim Ducks prospects on the Moose roster this season. “It was my first concussion as a pro. When you have a concussion, your whole body feels fine and sometimes you don’t feel the symptoms but you have to be careful. If you hurt your shoulder, you know how much you can push it. So it was kind of a waiting game.
