Vince Mercogliano of LoHud spoke to speak to a pair of doctors regarding Kaapo Kakko’s pre-existing health concerns (type 1 diabetes and celiac disease). The conclusion was that, given the proper precautions, Kakko should be able to play. Of course the Rangers will make the final call.
This shouldn’t be much of a surprise, as the proper precautions are going to be needed regardless of pre-existing conditions. The Rangers will just need to ensure extra care in Kakko’s situation.
