New York Rangers defenceman Marc Staal is out indefinitely with a concussion, coach Alain Vigneault confirmed on Tuesday.
 
Staal has a history with concussions and missed 36 games of the 2011-2012 after sustaining a concussion late in the 2010-2011 season.

Vigneault did however, add that this injury is not considered as severe as Staal's past concussion and said the team will take it "day-by-day."

Staal suffered the concussion in the third period of the Rangers' overtime loss to the New Jersey Devils on Saturday when he took a hit to the jaw by Devils forward Reid Boucher.

Staal's concussion is the latest in a string of injuries that have forced him to miss time in his NHL career.  The 26-year-old missed more than half of the NHL's 2013 shortened season with an eye injury he sustained after taking a puck to the face.
