Julien: No update on Savard's status
By James Murphy
WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Coach Claude Julien told the media following Bruins practice on Sunday that there were no updates on center Marc Savard, who -- along with his agent, Larry Kelly -- met with general manager Peter Chiarelli this weekend after undergoing further tests to determine whether his latest concussion would keep him out for the rest of the season.
Asked if there was anything new of Savard's status, Julien gave an emphatic "nope."
Savard suffered his second concussion in about 10 months when he was hit by former teammate and current Avalanche defenseman Matt Hunwick on Jan. 22 at Colorado. Savard has missed the last five games and recently returned to Boston after taking some time to rest in his native Ontario.
