Chiarelli: No update on Savard
By James Murphy
In a conference call with the media Thursday, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli couldn’t offer any update on the status of center Marc Savard, who is still suffering from post-concussion symptoms.
“I would think at some point I will but I would say it would be status quo based on the things that I know right now,” Chiarelli answered when asked if he had any “clarity” on Savard’s situation. “In all likelihood it will remain to be status quo, but things happen and we may continue to seek plans there.”
Savard suffered his second concussion within a calendar year on January 22 against Colorado, forcing him to shut down his 2010-11 season in early February after playing just 25 games. He was also unable to fly to Vancouver for the Bruins’ Stanley Cup clincher in Game 7 of the finals due to his symptoms. He did however come to Boston for the Stanley Cup parade.
