Marc Savard Turns To Golf

from Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun,

There are days when Savard still suffers symptoms, but his health has improved — though he realizes a potential NHL comeback is not likely in the cards.

“It’s going to be tough to play again,” said Savard, who had 207 goals and 706 points in the regular season and added eight goals and 22 points in the post-season. “I listen (to the doctors) and taking another hit is not really on the agenda. Right now, it doesn’t look promising.”

But playing golf has provided him a nice outlet for his competitive juices.

“It’s been nice to have something competitive that I can still do and ease the pain,” said Savard. “I have two boys and two girls. My girls are in dance and my boys play AAA hockey, so I’m still around the rink a lot and that fills the void of missing the game.”

Savard had his career taken away in 2011, the same year the Boston Bruins captured the Stanley Cup.

Savard’s career is done, he still suffers from head trauma symptoms, while Matt Cooke continues to enjoy a lucrative NHL career filled with injuring others and mediocre play.

Sounds about right.
