He makes him eat the boards for dinner.

The Dallas Stars have lost one of their top forwards for some time.

According to a report from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News, Stars head coach Lindy Ruff has informed him that veteran forward Patrick Sharp will be "out for a while" with concussion-like symptoms.

The first question that comes to mind of course is if he is out for a while, why not just come right out and call it a concussion? A question that becomes even more important when you see the video, a video that clearly shows an impact to Sharp's head and he goes face first into the boards.

While the outcome is certainly unfortunate for Sharp and the Stars, full credit to Brayden McNabb for delivering such a clean, yet powerful, hit to his opponent.
