Ben Eager got punched in the face. Now, he has a concussion.

Ben Eager was absolutely rocked by a Zack Kassian punch on Sunday in Vancouver. He missed the Oilers game Wednesday at home against San Jose thanks to the punch, and now, it seems the prognosis is worse.

I mean, when you look at the punch that connected whether via the video or the picture above, it's not really all that surprising that Eager's concussed. He played 63 games with the Oilers a year ago, racking up 107 penalty minutes in the process. Over the summer, Eager got in a bar fight in Toronto.
