Wild forward Pierre-Marc Bouchard, sidelined again by a concussion, said he's not worried his career is in jeopardy.

"I'm positive I can come back," he said Wednesday during his first meeting with the media since being placed on injured reserve. "The only bad thing about a concussion is you don't know how much time it's going to take."

Bouchard, 27, missed 104 games over parts of three seasons before returning regularly to the Minnesota lineup Dec. 1, 2010.

"I've been through it. I know my body. I know my symptoms," he said. "Hopefully, this can heal quicker than the last time."
