Ducks' Manson suffered mild concussion, separated shoulder in Round 1
It's now clear what was ailing Anaheim Ducks defenseman Josh Manson in the first round of the playoffs.
The team held exit interviews Saturday where Manson revealed that he suffered a mild concussion and a separated shoulder following a hit by Nashville Predators forward Filip Forsberg in the opening series.
The 24-year-old will not need surgery to repair the shoulder, Manson told NHL.com's Chris Zupke.
Manson was hopeful to return to the lineup for the second round, but a Game 7 loss to the Predators derailed his plans.
