Carolina Hurricanes forward Seth Jarvis is "pretty sure" he suffered a concussion in Monday's Game 7 against the New York Rangers, and he continues to deal with symptoms.
Jarvis met with the media on Thursday for the final time this season and revealed what he remembers from the series finale. He recalls getting hit by Rangers defenseman Jacob Trouba as he was sent flying on the ice. Jarvis was visibly shaken up on the play and was slow to get to the bench.
Jarvis also explained how he remembers watching some of the third period from the trainers’ room and then teammate Jesperi Kotkaniemi driving him home. Other than that, it's a blur until midway through the next day.
The 20-year-old acknowledged that he’s feeling better, though he's still “in a fog.”
Seth Jarvis shares that the only things he remembers from Game 7, when he was hit by Jacob Trouba, are an early power play, watching a bit of the third in the back and then Jesperi Kotkaniemi driving him home.
Other than that, nothing until midway through the next day. Scary.

Jarvis posted 40 points in 68 games during the regular season to finish eighth on the rookie scoring list. He recorded three goals and eight points in 14 playoff appearances.
Jarvis’s concussion puts the spotlight back on Trouba, as it is not the first time one of his big hits has drawn scrutiny. It started off when Trouba caught Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby with a high hit in Game 5 of the first round. Crosby would not return to that contest or for the following one.
In Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against Carolina, Trouba delivered a huge open-ice hit on Max Domi, then dropped the gloves with Steven Lorentz right afterwards. The latter was handed an instigator penalty that gave the Rangers a power play, which they capitalized on to take a 1-0 lead on the way to their series-tying win.
Trouba wasn’t penalized — or suspended — for any of the three hits.
While Jarvis keeps monitoring his symptoms, Trouba and the Rangers are currently leading the Eastern Conference final 1-0 over the back-to-back Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning.
