Concussion sidelines Adolph

Rockets forward on indefinite injured list

Max Adolph’s Western Hockey League career has been put on hold.

The 19-year-old forward has been placed on the indefinite injured list by the Kelowna Rockets as the result of a concussion he suffered in the club’s first pre-season game against the Vancouver Giants.

The 6-foot, 182-pound Adolph, who has a history of concussions, has returned home to Saskatoon to recuperate.

He’s expected to miss a minimum three months of action.

“After assessment from our doctors, we’re doing what is in in the best interest of Max,”  said Rockets president/GM Bruce Hamilton. “Our medical team have advised Max to avoid body contact and shut his season down for now. The best place for Max to recover is at home with his family. We’re going to stay in touch with Max and he will be re-assessed after Christmas.”

Concussions also sidelined Adolph twice last season as he played in just 36 games with the Rockets.

In 97 career games with Kelowna, Adolph has nine goals, seven assists and 52 penalty minutes.
