MONTREAL -- Canadian short-track speedskater Olivier Jean will skip this weekend's World Cup in Shanghai as he continues to recover from concussion symptoms.

The Lachenaie, Que., skater fell during the preliminary round of the 1,000-metre race last Friday at a World Cup in Nagoya, Japan. There is no firm timeline in place for his return.

Jean will be re-evaluated daily by the team's doctor in Montreal, Speed Skating Canada said Wednesday in a release.

Jean will be replaced by Charle Cournoyer of Boucherville, Que., at the last World Cup of the fall season.
