Bruins injuries: Daniel Paille has concussion symptoms, Loui Eriksson not progressing well, Jarome Iginla being evaluated

WILMINGTON — Bruins forward Daniel Paille, who missed the Bruins’ last three games with what the team called an upper-body injury, has concussion symptoms, according to Claude Julien.
The Bruins coach said that Paille told the team prior to last Tuesday’s game against the Flames that he wasn’t feeling well, at which point he was sent back to Boston to be evaluated. Paille remains off the ice, as he did not practice Monday.
The news isn’t good for Loui Eriksson, who is also out with a concussion. Julien said that Eriksson has not been progressing well since suffering a concussion on a hit from Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik on Dec. 7.
“He hasn’t even come to the rink,” Julien said. “I guess that’s probably the only thing I can give you right now, which is not a good sign.”
Jarome Iginla, who did not practice Monday, is getting evaluated after suffering a hand injury in a fight against Ryan Kesler Saturday. Iginla had finished the game Saturday, but the team recalled forward Craig Cunningham from Providence Monday with Iginla’s status uncertain.
