Marc Savard could practice in 2-3 days
Boston Bruins center Marc Savard, who hasn't played yet this season because of post-concussion syndrome, is expected to start skating with the team in the next two to three days, according to a Boston Globe report.
Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli told The Globe's Kevin Paul Dupont that Savard has continued to make good progress since ''ramping up'' his workouts a couple of weeks ago.
''He's doing much, much better,'' said Chiarelli. ''He has been symptom-free for a while now, increasing his skating.
All in all, he looks good.''
Savard has been skating on his own since mid-October. He suffered a Grade 2 concussion when he was on the receiving end of a blindside hit by the Penguins' Matt Cooke last March. After missing nearly two months, Savard returned to action in time for the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Philadelphia Flyers, but began experiencing post-concussion symptoms during his offseason training.
Savard is still six to eight weeks from returning to game action, according to the Globe report.
