• James Neal out indefinitely with concussion

    Updated:

    PITTSBURGH - Pittsburgh Penguins right winger James Neal is out indefinitely after sustaining a concussion, the team announced Friday.

    Neal played in the Penguins’ 2-0 victory on Tuesday against Washington. However, following Wednesday's off day, Neal told team doctors that he “didn't feel right,” according to coach Dan Bylsma.

    Later on Thursday, Neal was diagnosed with a concussion. He also sustained a concussion late in the 2013 regular season.

    Neal sustained an upper body injury on opening night that kept him out for the next five weeks. He was also suspended five games in December for kneeing Boston's Brad Marchand in the head.
