Roman Josi was diagnosed with a concussion on Sunday morning, the result of a hit the Swiss defenseman received from rough and tumble Avalanche winger Steve Downie on Friday night. 

According to a report from Swiss newspaper Tages Anzeiger, it's the fifth concussion Josi has sustained since 2009. The Predators signed the 23-year-old blue-liner to a seven year contract extension last spring.
