Laberge, who plays for the Victoriaville Tigres, was selected with the 36th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Draft by the Flyers. His agent, prolific Twitter user Allan Walsh, reported that he did indeed suffer a concussion and that he is symptomatic.
Moncton’s Zachary Malatesta, who has a history of such hits, has been suspended indefinitely by the league.
