San Jose Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle is on the road to recovery after being knocked unconscious by a hit from behind by St. Louis Blues forward Maxim Lapierre on October 15. One thing he’s not doing, however, is easily forgiving Lapierre.

Boyle spoke with reporters for the first time since the incident and says he doesn’t remember anything about it happening. After watching video of the incident, he’s not pleased with how it went down as Kevin Kurz of shares.

“He left a message. I think it’s been documented that I didn’t take the call. I’ll leave it at that for now,” Boyle said.

Lapierre apologized for the hit, but that and $5 will get you a coffee at Starbucks. He was suspended five games for the hit from behind.

Boyle skated on Thursday for the first time since the incident and says he hopes to be back in action before the end of the Sharks’ current road trip.
