Pierre-Marc Bouchard has had a rough couple of seasons since he suffered a concussion in the 2008-09 season with the Wild. That season, Bouchard was forced to sit out the last eight games and his injury carried on to this past season where he missed out on a total of 81 games. The effects to his body, from the concussion, have been never ending for Bouchard and have kept him from even exercising. Bouchard is ready to get back on the ice as soon as possible. It is going to be quite a challenge to recover, not only from this injury, but from missing out on an entire season’s worth of practice and games with his team. Bouchard is hoping to work hard this summer to get back to his original, if not improved, state.
