Red Wings' Johan Franzen has concussion symptoms again

Detroit Red Wings winger Johan Franzen is once again experiencing concussion symptoms.

What It Means:

Detroit has moved Franzen to the injured reserve list as a result. This is terrible news as Franzen has been plagued by concussion issues in recent years. We don't know how much time he'll miss due to this recurrence of symptoms, but at the age of 35 it's unfortunately not outside of the realm of possibilities that these problems will cut his career short.

We had Franzen projected for 14 goals and 24 assists this season, but those numbers will have to be refigured. Franzen was only able to play in 33 games last year, recording 7 goals and 15 helpers.
