Veteran forward Paul Kariya to miss next season with post-concussion syndrome

Veteran forward Paul Kariya will miss the next NHL season after being diagnosed with post-concussion syndrome.

Kariya announced the decision through a release from his agent Friday.

The 35 year old is a free agent after spending the last three seasons with St. Louis.
