 BOSTON (AP) -Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron skipped a fundraising dinner honoring him Tuesday night because of a concussion sustained last weekend when he was checked face-first into the boards.
There is no timetable for Bergeron to return to the ice, but Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said concussions of this severity usually require at least a month of recovery time.
Philadelphia defenseman Randy Jones was suspended by the NHL for two games because of the hit in the Flyers' 2-1 win in Boston on Saturday.
Bergeron was supposed to receive the Champion award from Children's Hospital in Boston for his work in the community, including the hospital. But he wasn't feeling well enough to attend. Bruins captain Zdeno Chara went to accept the award on his behalf, team spokesman Matt Chmura said.
Under the ``Patrice's Pals'' program, young hospital patients and their family members attend Bruins games in a suite.
The 22-year-old Bergeron, one of Boston's top players, was unconscious on the ice after being pushed into the boards from behind by Jones in the first period.
He was taken from the ice on a stretcher and driven to Massachusetts General Hospital, where team physician Dr. Bertram Zarins diagnosed him with a concussion and a broken nose. No other serious injuries were revealed by tests and Bergeron was released Sunday.
Bruins coach Claude Julien called it ``a dirty hit.'' Jones apologized after the game.
