Bruins place Savard on injured reserve

By ESPNBoston.com

Boston Bruins forward Marc Savard made it official today, saying he would miss the rest of the season and playoffs due to ongoing problems stemming from concussions. The Bruins will place him on season-ending injured reserve.

Just over two weeks since his latest concussion, Savard said Monday he was still experiencing post-concussion symptoms, including headaches. He missed the first 23 games of the season due to post-concussion symptoms stemming from a concussion he suffered last March 7 on a blindside hit from Matt Cooke.

As for his hockey future going forward, the 33-year-old Savard said he wasn’t ready to start think about the possibility of retiring.

"I'm not going to make any decision about my future until I get more medical stuff done,” Savard said. “I need to be patient."
