Boston Bruins defenseman Brandon Carlo has returned to practice with his team this week and resumed skating. He sustained an injury October 15 against the Arizona Coyotes. While Boston did not comment specifically on his injury, Carlo hinted that it was a mild concussion. Carlo took a hard hit on the side boards from Coyotes forward Liam O'Brien that seemed to stun him.

He finished his shift, went to the locker room, and did not return. Carlo admitted after the hit:
He couldn't see what was ahead of him as the play moved up the ice.

He described it as one eye ‘going black' and causing issues. (This is the same thing Marc Savard described when he suffered what was ultimately a career-ending concussion in 2011.)

Even though Carlo stated it was mild concussion this time, this must be concerning for Carlo and for the Bruins organization. Carlo has already had a bad history with this type of injury, and this would be the fifth concussion since 2017. Carlo has been a steady force on Boston's blueline for the past six seasons. Carlo is only twenty-five years old. Let's hope he can return to full health and avoid any more concussions, or his career could be in jeopardy.
