“Following discussions with Magnus and his agent, we made the decision to give him the opportunity to return to his native Sweden to recover from his injury. Aware that his concussion symptoms have persisted, the organization and our medical personnel believe that the best option for his recovery is to get away from the game and rest at home in Sweden surrounded by his family and friends. We will continue to monitor his condition.”
