Report: Coyotes shut down Vitale (concussion) for the season
Joe Vitale will not play again this season.
The Arizona Coyotes have shut Vitale down for the remainder of the 2015-16 campaign due to “concussion-related issues,” according to a report from Sarah McLellan of azcentral sports on Wednesday.
Vitale, a 30-year-old veteran center, appeared in only one game for the Coyotes this season. That was back on Oct. 17, when he suffered a concussion and broken orbital bone in a fight with Kevan Miller of the Boston Bruins.
Also, Maloney said Joe Vitale (concussion-related issues) will not return this season. "There’s been no real measurable progress."— Sarah McLellan (@sarah__mclellan) February 10, 2016
