Bo Byram will miss today’s game for the Avalanche against Vegas because of an upper-body injury, and the worry is that it’s concussion-related. That’s the worry anyway.
Byram was likely hurt on this hit from Vegas’ Keegan Kolesar in Thursday’s game, in which Kolesar leapt off his feet. I wholeheartedly agree with Altitude’s Mark Rycroft, wondering why this didn’t result in either a fine or a suspension?

It wasn’t even a penalty on Kolesar. Jared Bednar was highly critical of the hit Thursday. This won’t do anything to dispel the conspiracy theorists that Vegas gets preferential treatment from the NHL in matters like these.
