As Expected, Savard Done For The Season

BOSTON, MA – Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that forward Marc Savard has been placed on long term injured reserve and will miss the remainder of the 2010-11 regular season and playoffs, should the Bruins qualify.

Savard sustained a concussion during the Bruins/Avalanche game on Saturday, January 22, his second concussion in 10 months (first occurred March 7, 2010 at Pittsburgh). Savard played his first game of the 2010-11 season on December 2 after missing the season’s first 23 games with post-concussion symptoms. In 25 games this year, Savard registered two goals and eight assists for 10 points.

Absolutely terrible.  My heart goes out the the guy, and here’s hoping he can play again, even if he never produces at his top level.

Terrible news for the Bruins, and for Marc Savard! I hope he’ll be able to play again next season, but wow… two concussions in ten months can’t be good… :-(

Hope he can recover and one day play again up to his standards and skill set.  Actually seems like a blessing he signed his contract extension when he did.  At least he has a comfortable income for the immediate future while he recovers.
