Nolan Patrick Diagnosed With Migraine Disorder, Will Miss Start of Season

Eric Hartline - USA Today Sports

Alright, so this was not expected:

That explains what’s been going on for the last few weeks, a period of time that was SHROUDED in mystery. Patrick was only listed with an “upper body injury” and nobody really knew what was going on. He apparently also deleted his social media accounts during that period.

Obviously you’re not putting him on a plane to the Czech Republic with this kind of issue. The next step is… I dunno. The Devils game is October 9th, five days after the Blackhawks game in Prague.

Patrick was the #2 pick in the 2017 draft. He’s played 145 games and scored 26 goals while adding 35 assists.

  1. Sure sounds ominous to me for a guy who’s already had his fair share of concussions … Hope I’m wrong, but anyone who lived through the Lindros era has seen a movie that started like this.

  2. Speaking as someone with chronic migraines, i wonder how severe his are. I’m on daily medication for them and if i miss my dose by an hour i instantly get one and then i have to go to an emergency med that makes me feel like i took a valium. I get them even if i do take my meds correctly at times.

    However i don’t think this will be something that will end his career or he should miss any more than a few games over. These players are already on so many pain meds as it is, Nolan might as well get used to it.
