Devils GM Ray Shero suggested that it would be a long shot for Ryane Clowe to play this season.
"The last time he played was, what, Nov. 6? That's been a long time," Shero said. "Training camp is next month, so at some point, in terms of how he is feeling, a determination has to be made by him and doctors as to what direction he can or cannot go." Clowe has suffered four concussions in the past two seasons and he was limited to 13 games last year. He may be forced to retire depending on what his doctors recommend. Aug 13 - 8:04 PM

Ryane Clowe's possible return to action for the upcoming season will be made by him and his doctors.

He may not get the green light to play due to concussion problems. Clowe admitted that he was considering retirement at the end of last season even though he still has three years and $14.55 million left on his contract. He would like to continue to playing, but doctors may have the final call on his career.
Aug 5 - 10:27 AM

Devils GM Ray Shero confirmed that they have no new information to share regarding Ryane Clowe (concussion).

A series of concussions have put the future of Clowe's playing career in doubt. He's been limited to 56 games over the last two seasons.
Jul 22 - 10:40 AM

Devils GM Ray Shero has no new information regarding Ryane Clowe's (concussion) future.

"I really don't," Shero said. "With Ryane Clowe, it think it's just is an ongoing thing. Lou has been so involved in this from the beginning. He has more information than I do. The most important part about it is Ryane and his health, let alone his career. It's more his health and how he's feeling and doing the right thing and him doing the right thing." The question at this point is if Clowe should continue his career or retire in light of the string of concussions he's endured in recent years. We might not get an answer to that until much closer to training camp, if then.

Ryane Clowe's future remains cloudy because of concussion issues.

GM Ray Shero and doctors will discuss whether or not Clowe will be able to resume his playing career, but right now no decision has been made. Clowe admitted in April that retirement could be a possibility. "Sometimes it's more of a personal decision," Shero said. "I think it's a combination of the player, the organization and doctors. All those things are taken into account for the best welfare of the player."

Ryane Clowe (concussion) will not return before the end of the 2014-15 campaign.

The real question at this point is if Clowe will ever play again as there's no guarantee that he will. Clowe, who was limited to just 13 games this season, has seen his career be derailed by a series of concussions over the last year and a half. Despite that, Clowe is traveling with the team on its current road trip, but that's strictly so that he can be around his teammates.
Feb 13 - 1:32 PM

Ryane Clowe (concussion) is still "status quo," according to New Jersey Devils' GM Lou Lamoriello.

It's not clear if Clowe will ever play again, let alone return before the end of the 2014-15 campaign. Unfortunately, Clowe has been battered by concussions over the last year and a half, which has put the viability of him continuing his career in question.
Feb 6 - 10:13 AM

With four concussions in less than 18 months, Ryan Clowe's career could be over.

New Jersey Devils' GM Lou Lamoriello said it's, "very vague at this point" if or when Clowe will return to the ice. Clowe has not played since Nov. 8th, and has dressed just 98 times, including two playoff games with the Rangers, since 2012 for Sharks, Devils and aforementioned Rangers.
Jan 23 - 6:33 PM

Despite the fact that Ryane Clowe has started working out off the ice, his return to action is still up in the air.

GM Lou Lamiorello said that Clowe's career could be questionable as he suffered yet another concussion on November 6. Clowe is not close to returning to the ice so do not expect Clowe to be a fantasy asset this season.
Jan 3 - 8:41 AM

Ryane Clowe (concussion) has started working out off the ice.

"He's been doing some exercises and so forth," GM Lou Lamoriello said. "He's around. Everything is positive (in that he's working out), but he's out indefinitely." Clowe has been sidelined since Nov. 6 due to a suspected concussion.
Jan 1 - 5:38 PM

Ryane Clowe (concussion) is feeling much better.

That's obviously good news, but given that Clowe has sustained four concussions in under two years, there's no guarantee that he'll play again. "It's just waiting to see what the doctors say," Devils GM Lou Lamoriello said today. "In these situations, it's up to the doctors and him." Clowe has been on the sidelines for roughly two weeks.
Fri, Nov 21, 2014 11:05:00 AM

Ryane Clowe (concussion) will not join the Devils on their upcoming four-game road trip.

Clowe has already missed five consecutive games. Given his concussion history, the fact that he's sidelined again is very troubling.
Mon, Nov 17, 2014 10:56:00 AM

Ryane Clowe (concussion) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

Clowe last played on Nov. 6 and this move is probably retroactive as a result. He has a goal and four points in 13 games this season.
Tue, Nov 11, 2014 04:39:00 PM

Ryane Clowe (concussion) will miss New Jersey's game on Monday in Boston.

Clowe suffered a concussion on Thursday. There was no update on his condition after Devils' practice on Sunday.
Sun, Nov 9, 2014 12:59:00 PM

Ryane Clowe missed the last two periods of Thursday's game due to a possible concussion.

Clowe will be held out of Friday's contest for the same reason. "Because of his past history, we’ll get him re-evaluated when we go home," Devils GM Lou Lamoriello said. He suffered three concussions over the last span of less than a year, so the possibility that he might have another head injury is very troubling.
