Alain Vigneault said yesterday that Matt Puempel has been cleared for contact but wouldn't travel with the team to Toronto for tonight's game.
Puempel was due to stay behind and continue skating and Vigneault said that he needed Puempel to get in a few practices and "see how he reacts to having people around him."
He said that after suffering his second concussion in a few weeks that the Rangers slowed things down in his recovery process, which he thinks has "helped out huge because I feel really good right now." (NY Post)
Puempel has been skating for a while and suffered this latest concussion on 12/31 against Colorado.
