Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler declined Monday to blame Kings center Jarret Stoll for the concussion he suffered after a hard hit in the Feb. 2 game between the teams at the Honda Center. Fowler said he hoped to return to the lineup in time for the rematch next Monday at Staples Center.
Said Fowler: “It’s just one of those things that happens with hockey. I mean, Jarret Stoll, he’s obviously not that type of player. I know he wasn’t trying to put me in that situation. It’s something that just ended up happening. … You don’t want to blame him for what happened. It’s hockey. Those things are going to happen.”
