Savard to Miss Remainder of the Season
BOSTON, MA – Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that forward Marc Savard has been placed on long term injured reserve and will miss the remainder of the 2010-11 regular season and playoffs, should the Bruins qualify.

Savard sustained a concussion during the Bruins/Avalanche game on Saturday, January 22, his second concussion in 10 months (first occurred March 7, 2010 at Pittsburgh). Savard played his first game of the 2010-11 season on December 2 after missing the season’s first 23 games with post-concussion symptoms. In 25 games this year, Savard registered two goals and eight assists for 10 points.  

He signed a seven-year contract extension with the Bruins through the 2016-17 season on December 1, 2009, after originally joining the Bruins as a free agent on July 1, 2006. He has skated in 304 games for Boston in his four-plus years with the club, registering 74 goals and 231 assists for 305 points. For his career, the 33-year-old has 207 goals and 499 assists for 706 points in 807 NHL regular season games with the Rangers, Flames, Thrashers and Bruins.
