The Philadelphia Flyers announced that Marc-Andre Bourdon might be loaned to the AHL so he can eventually ready himself for NHL action.

Bourdon hasn't played in the NHL since April 11, 2012. He scored four points in 17 games in the AHL last season. His struggles with concussion issues have delayed his development.

Marc-Andre Bourdon (concussion) skated on Sunday.

Bourdon suffered the concussion last November and still is unable to play. He will undergo some testing with concussion specialist Dr. Jeffrey Kutcher of the University of Michigan later this week. Bourdon had good and bad days at training camp. "Some days I felt like Bobby Orr on the ice and I could do everything, and some days I felt like I was a squirt hockey player," Bourdon said. "I couldn't react fast and my passes were off and I was really dizzy. I couldn't look down or up real fast. It's really tough for me. I don't really have an answer." The 24-year-old was drafted in the third round of the 2008 draft. His hockey future could be in doubt as he is coming upon a year off with his concussion issues.

Marc-Andre Bourdon still hasn't received the green light to return from a concussion he suffered last November.

"I still have some ups and downs," said Bourdon, who continues to battle some symptoms. "It's taking longer than I thought. I'm hoping [to be back soon]. I'm praying on it." Philadelphia GM Paul Holmgren believes that Bourdon is heading in the right direction though.

Marc-Andre Bourdon is eager to land a spot with the Philadelphia Flyers after missing most of the 2012-13 season due to a concussion.

He has sustained two concussions over the past year, but feels ready to make a comeback. "I'm dying to play hockey right now. That's my only focus," Bourdon said. "I kinda felt sorry for myself at the start, but I'm over it. I'm just ready to go. I just need my head to be 100 percent. I have the mindset to play hockey and make this team." Philadelphia has nine defensemen, including Bourdon, on one-way contracts so there will be plenty of competition at training camp. Bourdon still has to get medical clearance, but he has been skating and receiving message therapy in the hope of being ready when camp opens.

Marc-Andre Bourdon (concussion) is close to getting cleared for contact.

"I’m not there yet, but I’m getting there," Bourdon said. "I’m much better and moving in the right direction. The doctors are optimistic." That being said, he's still not completely symptom free. While he's not suffering from headaches, he does occasionally experience blurred vision. Still, that represents a major improvement compared to how he was feeling when he was first injured.

Marc-Andre Bourdon practised with his Flyer teammates for the first time this season.

Well, better late than never. Bourdon has been sidelined for all but 17 AHL games with a concussion. We do not see him as a fantsay asset in the foreseeable future.

Marc-Andre Bourdon, who has skated in just 17 AHL games this season because of a concussion, returned to Philadelphia last week to begin strengthening his eyes.

"I have lots of headaches. The good news is that my doctors tell me it's going to come back," said Bourdon. "My reflexes are there, but my eyesight is off. It's like rehabbing a knee, I need to rehab my eyes and get everything back to where it was." He hasn't been able to do much skating, but he is taking baby steps in that regard. However, he believes he'll be ready to play next season.

Marc-Andre Bourdon is out with another concussion.

"He has concussion issues," Philadelphia GM Paul Holmgren said. "I'm concerned because he is out and not playing. But I think there has been players who have had a similar history like his and have been fine." Bourdon suffered two concussions last season, although the one that came in the playoffs against Pittsburgh was unannounced and had been classified as an upper-body injury.

Marc-Andre Bourdon had an assist in Adirondack's 2-1 win over Rochester on Friday night.

Bourdon is a stay-at-home defenseman in every sense of the word, so the fact this is just his first point of the season isn't a shocker. Still, solid play that's not always shown in the scoreboard in the AHL could help improve his stock to make the Flyers' lineup as a bottom-tier defender.

Marc-Andre Bourdon was back in Adirondack's lineup last Friday against Albany after he missed the previous two contests with an upper-body injury.

He also played in the team's next two matches on Saturday versus Rochester and on Sunday at Syracuse. Bourdon didn't record a point over that three-game span, but he did rack up five shots and 10 penalty minutes. He appeared in 45 games with the Flyers last season and may have had a shot to earn a roster spot with the team at training camp.
