Xrays often do not detect hairline breaks. MRI's, CT scans do. What I think probably occurred is that Nuge had concussion protocol immediately, then some Xrays (and they have that equipment at Rogers but not an MRI) and that initially the pain probably wasn't as severe. Post injury there is often a bodies response to sensitize to pain and nerves and to produce inflammation that masks symptoms. Nuge probably felt worse over the next days at which point he likely had an idea something else was wrong. As much as I like critiquing this org what transpired here in diagnostic latency was due to the mandated NHLPA days off in which a club cannot have a player perform any function, and not due to medical, or club incompetence.
