Former Wings coach Todd McLellan having concussion-like symptoms

San Jose Sharks coach Todd McLellan is still dealing with concussion-like symptoms after getting hit in the head with a stick in Minnesota on Sunday.

Here is the statement released by the Sharks on the former Wings assistant coach.

SAN JOSE – San Jose Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson today released the following statement:

“Todd continues to make progress in his recovery from the stick incident in Minnesota on Sunday evening but is still experiencing concussion-like symptoms. Thus, he will not be behind the bench until cleared by doctors to resume his coaching duties, beginning with tonight’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers. While Todd will continue to provide his input on the team, we have full confidence in the abilities of Assistant Coaches Matt Shaw and Jay Woodcroft to lead the team in Todd’s absence.

“Our main concern at this point is for Todd’s full and complete recovery.”

The Sharks will have no further comment on this matter.
