When a player is on IR, how long does he need to be out.

Quote
From NHL.com
Injured Reserve List
In the event that a player is injured and a Club wishes to place him on the Injured Reserve List the Club must follow these procedures:
A club may place a player on the Injured Reserve List if such player is injured, disabled or ill and unable to perform his duties as a hockey player after having passed the Club's initial physical examination in that season.
A player who has an injury that renders him physically unable to play for a minumum of seven days after that date of the injury can be placed on the Club's Injured Reserve List. Once a player is placed on the list, the Club may replace said player on its NHL roster with another player. All determinations that a player has suffered an injury warranting injured reserve status must be made by the Club's medical staff and in accordance with the Club's medical standards.
A player placed on Injured Reserve is ineligible to compete in NHL games for a period of not less than seven days.
Players on Injured Reserve may attend Club meetings and meals, travel with the Club and participate in practice sessions.

Thanks very much

A not-so-encouraging update on Komarov:

Quote
In a phone interview on Monday, Komarov’s agent said the Toronto Maple Leafs forward is still suffering from headaches that have been present ever since he was blindsided with an elbow to the head from Alex Ovechkin on Nov. 29. For that reason, he should never have been on the ice to begin with.

“You have to trust your instincts. If you feel something is wrong, then something is wrong,” Komarov’s agent, Mark Gandler, said. “In my mind, he shouldn’t have practised. He shouldn’t have been on the ice that day.”

...

Days later, Komarov passed his baseline test and other concussion protocol. When the Leafs held him out of the lineup, it was merely described as a precaution. But behind the scenes, Gandler said something was not right.

Though Komarov was technically cleared to skate — he had exerted himself on a bike earlier that morning without any issue, according to the team — symptoms had not completely gone away. After the skate last Thursday, Komarov reported to a Leafs trainer that he experienced concussion-type symptoms and his injury was officially listed as a concussion.

Since then, the team said on Monday that he has been told not to work out, ride the bike or exert himself.

“I told Leo, you must report if you have a headache. You must not go on the ice,” said Gandler, who said the Leafs did not pressure Komarov to return. “They cannot see. You have to tell them. And he said ‘I have a headache.’ There’s no problem here with Toronto. Where’s there’s a problem is with these tests, which are completely useless.”

This is the pitts, we need the Komrade back but only when he is well enough, they continue to win without him so get him well for the playoffs when we need his assets.

dalter: Roman Polak, among players taking part in Leafs practice today. Eligible to return to the lineup tomorrow should they choose to use him.

jonasTSN1050: Now 17 days since Leo Komarov suffered a concussion. He is not practicing again today.

jonasTSN1050: Actually, 19 days since the concussion. My mistake. Point is, no return in sight yet for Komarov. He'll miss his 9th straight game tomorrow.

Time flies eh. I couldn't believe that Ashton only has 1 game left on his suspension.

He was only placed on waivers today. Whether or not he clears won't be announced until noon tomorrow.

Okidoki, thanks.  With the depth the Leafs have, he may not be back (this year). I would think to make room for Komrade when he is OK, Smith will come back and many on this site think Carrick would be called up again if there is injury

Leo Komarov has been skating on his own in recent days and is making good progress in concussion recovery. He's increasing workload now.

He also skated today for about 20 minutes with the Leafs strength coach before the Leafs practice. So he's making some progress there.

Great news on the Komrade. We need him back in the lineup.

22 days and 11 games and counting without Komarov.  I'm sure glad that Ovechkin apologized to him after the game.

Hey, the NHL is serious about head injuries, don't you know.

From Jonas Siegel:

Quote from: http://www.tsn.ca/seasoned-blackhawks-show-envious-leafs-how-it-s-done-1.165696
It's very likely that Leo Komarov doesn't play again for the Leafs until 2015.

Komarov, who's missed the past 11 games with a concussion, has been skating recently and steadily improving. But the 27-year-old continues to experience symptoms related to the concussion, according to a source, even if those symptoms are not quite as severe as those in the initial aftermath of the injury.

And while he has taken to the ice briefly with the team's strength coach in recent days, Komarov still has yet to practice with the team, has yet to go through any substantial drills, and will miss the final game before the Christmas break in Dallas.

The Leafs will have five games in seven days when they return from the holidays with the possibility of one, maybe two practices in that span. He'll need more than that to return given the precarious nature of the injury and length of time missed. And that's assuming those symptoms disappear – they haven't yet – which is obviously far from a guarantee.

The likely timeline for Komarov's return, according to the source, is January – perhaps as late as the middle of the month. Leafs general manager Dave Nonis did not respond to a request for comment on the matter.

Komarov was among the better Leafs through the first two months this season. He had 16 points in 23 games.
