"If he were to be cleared at some point, he would need at least a couple of weeks to get back," general manager Peter Chiarelli said, according to the team’s website. "He's quite far off right now. I know he's skating, but he's having little bouts here and there of post-concussion symptoms. It's a long shot. I'm not going to rule him out, yet, but it's a long shot." Nathan has been in the league for 11 seasons totaling 185 goals and 195 assists. This season he has recorded 17 goals with 15 assists.
