Defenseman Simon Despres is looking to remain healthy this season as he had a couple of concussions in 2015-16.
Despres was concussed in October after a hit by Tyson Barrie in the fifth game of the season and sat out 42 games at the time. The symptoms returned in late March after a game in Montreal when he was hit again. "Well, I was sensitive to light," Despres said. "Sensitive to noise. More emotional. I had headaches. Dizziness. Close to fainting. Stuff like that. ... It was a challenge. It was dangerous." Despres is currently healthy and has changed his number from 24 to 6 in hopes of a new start. He had only four points in 32 games last season so we definitely do not recommend the veteran defenseman in fantasy pools. Sep 25 - 5:31 AM
