Hawks' Montador Far From Getting Back On The Ice

News: Steve Montador (concussion) is not close to getting back on the ice after suffering another concussion recently, the Chicago Tribune reported on Thursday.
Analysis: This appears to be a long process with his second concussion in a about a year's time. Steve Montador was injured in a game against the Colorado Avalanche last February and returned for one game -- March 27 against the New Jersey Devils -- before being shut down for the rest of the season. He worked out with team personnel and other injured players -- including Marian Hossa-- during the lockout and was medically cleared by the team. Montador then suffered another head injury after colliding with a teammate during an informal practice shortly before the lockout ended.
