On Sunday the Blackhawks placed defenseman Luc Snuggerud on unconditional waivers.

Health issues, including multiple concussions, have limited him to only 44 games over the past two years.

  1. Heard last night he recently had a setback from a pretty nasty concussion suffered early in the year. He just wasn’t getting better physically. Very sad.

  2. That could unfotunately be Row, with the timing of this almost makes you think he is retiring rather than going somewhere else.

  3. As I think most know, Colliton’s playing career was ended by concussions. I think this will be an increasing trend as awareness and medical science advance. Best of wishes to this kid.

  4. Unrelated to Snuggerud, back to the John Hayden discussion… I hope they trade him so he can really “play” professional hockey! Thru 2 periods 4+ mins of play – really?? Perlini 8+ mins AND takes a hooking penalty- lazy/sloppy! And look at hits- Hayden 4 hits in 4 mins, Perlini ZERO hits in 8 mins- rest my case, he just skates around not really doing anything?

  5. Sad news for Snuggerud. He seemed to have some upside early on in his career. If he does have concussion issues, why not shut it down for the rest of the season and see how he feels next September. But I guess if he’s on waivers, the Hawks and doctors must believe his career is over.

  6. Hull65 – if he’s on unconditional waivers my guess is his career is likely over. He’s been pretty banged up and multiple concussions that have taken a while to get past. No sense in shutting it down until Sept if you’re not getting back on the ice in Sept.

    I hope he recovers and can live a successful life away from the game if this is it for him. Having dealt with concussions as a high school and college football player I feel for the kid.

  7. Kinda sad but this young man has character and unconditional support because the the Hawks organization is a great evaluator of talent ,I would expect he will develop through another path and be a huge success.Wish him much luck and prosperity.
