PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Flyers center Keith Primeau could be close to making a decision about his future after
he met Monday with a concussion specialist in Toronto.
Primeau, still recovering from a concussion suffered Oct. 25 in Montreal, is visiting with doctors until Tuesday
to see if there's any way he can return to play this season, or ever.
"It's just a difficult decision and I haven't set a day where I am going to make any formal announcement,''
Primeau said on the team's Web site. "I know that making the decision, though, is in the not-too-distant future.''
Flyers general manger Bob Clark has asked Primeau to make a decision by the end of the Olympic break in late
"I have since then been advised by the doctors that it may be in my best interests to forego playing this
year and continue my rehab in hopes of returning in September,'' Primeau said. "(Clarke) and the organization are all aware
of those conversations that I've had with the doctors, and I told them that I would let them know as soon as I have made a
decision and felt comfortable with that decision.''
Primeau was named captain in 2001, but that has since been given to acting captain defenseman Derian Hatcher.
