Maidens leaves Owen Sound Attack training camp with post-concussion symptoms

Jamie Sabau

Ottawa Senators prospect Jarrod Maidens' post-concussion symptoms have returned, so sadly the 2012 third-round selection has been sent home from his OHL team's training camp.

Some sad news out of the Ottawa Senators rookie camp Owen Sound today as Jarrod Maidens' post-concussion symptoms have returned, forcing the forward to be sent home.

(Note: Thanks to @Wham_City for correctly pointing out that Maidens was participating in the Owen Sound Attack training camp when his symptoms returned.)

These symptoms are nothing new to Maidens, who hasn't played since he suffered a concussion on November 30, 2011--nearly two full years ago. He's been battling the after-effects of that head injury since then, and seemed to be turning a corner this year when he attended the Senators' development camp and was expected to play in the upcoming rookie camp. It seems like that's been set aside, at least for the time being. Maidens, who was ranked 18 in our current Top 25 Under 25 series, remains a good prospect for the organization.

As with any post-concussion injury, there is no timetable for Maidens' recovery. He may still be able to play this season with the  Attack, or he may be sidelined for the remainder of the season. Hopefully it's the former.
