    Hopefully the kid can get his health back and have a decent NHL career still.

    Hopefully, he's progressed enough to move on from the migraines tough blow for such a talented kid. Wishing him the best moving forward !!

    Concussion related migraines = no play lots

    It's not related to any injury at all given what we've been told. He has a family history and has had them in the past; it's quite possible for them to flare up, without a discernible cause, and become difficult to nigh uncontrollable in adulthood.

    Sad for any player to have his career derailed by injuries. Still young and plenty of time to return, get healthy and hoping for a full recovery.

    I've been dealing with it personally for over a decade. Not fun and incredibly frustrating not knowing the cause (or by extension - how to treat it).

    He’s had at least three head injuries: twice getting hit against the boards and once from a slap shot

    That’s incorrect, the migraines had absolutely no relevance to his concussion, he had migraines when he was a kid and they happened to come back

    I'd really love to see this young man step back on the ice to play a long career. I myself have suffered 27 concussions, as well as 3 traumatic brain injuries in my life. Living with post traumatic stress disorder is not an easy condition to deal with because no one can visually see the injury. This young man should get a ton of support from the Flyers fans @ Wells Fargo Centre, when and if the fans are allowed to go to the games. I am so happy for Nolan Patrick to sign this extension and continue his disrupted career.

    Patrick always had migranes. Now he did have a bad concussion from a Kurtis Gabriel hit his rookie year so who knows if that caused things to get worse. So far so good skating in loose scrimmages last couple of weeks.

    I also suffered from migraines as a child. I was abused as a child, and many of my earliest head injuries were sustained through that period, which were undetected since my parents never took me to the doctor for treatment.
    Having intense migraines throughout my life has caused me to avoid bright lights and noise, yet living in the lifestyle I grew up in was very difficult, as my parents flat was very near the rail station and the slaughterhouse.
    Even though I had a migraine issue, being bashed about didn't help the situation a tiny bit.
    My time in the R.A.F. also added a bit to the injuries I sustained, yet I would do it again if I had to for my duty to my country.

    I really hope this year he breaks out. He deserves it.

    We're all rooting for you, Nolan!

    As I said, I was abused as a kid, then I played rugby as a teen and into my A level and college. I was also a Lieutenant in the Royal Air Force during the Falklands War. I began playing ice hockey in my mid twenties (defense), and grew to love the game. I have several scars from my playing days....hockey in the U.K. is a bit tough. Not for the weak hearted for sure. The team I followed was the Philadelphia Flyers, and I still love them today.....although there are some players I don't fancy (too concerned about their poofy little dogs than leaving everything on the ice).

    Rooting for the kid, hope he can get to a healthy state and enjoy life beyond the rink as well as in it.

    I guess the injury concerns mentioned in his draft year were true. Tough to see for such a promising prospect

    New Jersey Devils dodged a bullet when they didn't draft him first. Poor guy. Hopefully he bounces back.
