Paul Ranger doesn't have concussion
TORONTO -- Maple Leafs defenseman Paul Ranger has a sore neck but no concussion after hitting his head on the glass.
Ranger didn't participate in Toronto's practice Friday but went on the ice for a team photo. Coach Randy Carlyle says Ranger wasn't treated for a concussion.
He was released from a Toronto hospital Wednesday night, after the Leafs' 5-3 loss.
Ranger said he immediately felt neck pain after the hit and went into "preservation mode."
The 29-year-old Ranger says he's thankful the injury wasn't worse.
