After missing a good chunk of the 2019-2020 season with issues related to concussion, Micheal Ferland has returned to his home in Manitoba. Sources say he’s dealing with similar issues.— Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) August 6, 2020
TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger reports that after missing a good chunk of this season with issues related to a concussion, Ferland is now dealing with a similar ailment.
He has returned home to Manitoba, Dreger adds.
The 28-year-old did not record any points in Vancouver's first two games of the play-in round, though Ferland did draw a $5,000 fine for spearing Ryan Hartman of the Wild on Sunday. He was also involved in a fight in the same game.
In 14 games this season, Ferland had one goal and four assists in just under 10 minutes of ice time per game.
