Triumphant is the right word here, as Moore suffered greatly through his concussion recovery process. "For about a week, I really wasn’t myself at all," Moore said. "I couldn’t remember things, I was angry all the time, and anxious. I know I wasn’t easy to be around, just not myself. It was scary, really scary." Thanks to the support of the Devils' medical staff, teammates, friends and his wife Elizabeth, Moore appears ready to resume his season. The 26-year-old defender has 13 points along with 33 PIMs, 31 hits and 38 blocks in 33 games.

The Devils have placed John Moore on I/R with a concussion following Saturday's match with Washington.

Tough way to bring in the New Year. Moore received a check from behind from Tom Wilson early on in the game and had his chin go straight into the glass. It was pretty as he crumpled to the ground and had to be stretchered off the ice. Hopefully a little extra rest will him wonders.
