For those that haven't seen it, this is the interview that happened post game after former MTU Husky and current Senator Andy Sutton knocked former Gopher and Penguin Jordan Leopold out of the game and caused Jordan Leopold to miss the last four games of the series with the Senators. There is no set time table for Leo's return to the line up. This is what Leo had to say about the hit today.
Leopold declined to say how many concussions he has sustained in his career -- "I do [know], but I'm not going to advertise it," he said -- or to offer an opinion on whether he believed Sutton's hit was clean.
"What's done is done," he said. "You just leave it in the past."
Sutton was neither penalized nor suspended, and Leopold characterized the damage done by Sutton as "relatively mild," but acknowledged that he appeared to be seriously injured when it happened.
"You look back at the hit, it wasn't pretty," he said.
Leopold said, "it's my call" about when he will be able to get back into a game and made it clear that he will not consider playing until he is convinced he is completely recovered. [Post-Gazette.com]
