GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Grand Rapids Griffins Defenseman Adam Almquist may sit out the potential Calder Cup-winning game on Friday because of a concussion he sustained during Game 3 of the series.

According to Almquist, he blacked out after a hit by Syracuse Right Wing Richard Panik.

No official decision will be made until Friday, but Almquist said he doesn’t expect to play.  If so, Brett Skinner will return to the lineup to fill his place.
