Former Leafs forward, Ondrej Kase may be forced to retire early after concussion issues take precedence.

Ondrej Kase May be Forced to Retire at 27

Ondrej Kase has always been known as a player who could give more if he just stayed healthy. Originally a 7th-round pick in 2014, Kase rose through the ranks and made the NHL two seasons after he was drafted.
As a sophomore in the NHL, Kase registered career highs in goals, assists, points, and games played. The problem here was that his career high in games played was only 66 games.
This year, Kase only played in one game with the Carolina Hurricanes where he played only 11 minutes and 2 seconds and that may have been the final game of his career.
Kase suffered a concussion in the first game and has not come back since. Throughout his career, Kase has been plagued with concussions and it has taken a serious toll on him.
In an interview today, Hurricanes GM Don Waddell said this about Kase.
Kase played 50 games with the Leafs in 2021-22 and registered 14 goals and 27 points. He left last off-season to play in Carolina.

Concussions: A Player's Worst Nightmare

It is tough to see concussions derail a player's career and one can only hope Kase remains in good health for the rest of his life.
