Savard To Speak Today


A 2 p.m. press conference has been scheduled at TD Garden today in which Marc Savard, Peter Chiarelli and team physician Dr. Peter Asnis will announce and discuss the fact that Savard is being shut down for the season due to his ongoing concussion related issues.

This is no surprise, really, and I think it’s the best move for both the player and the team at this point. Savard needs an extended time period to heal and assess his future in hockey. The Bruins need the closure of knowing for sure that he won’t be available this season so they can adjust accordingly, on the ice and through the salary cap. It’s the only move that makes sense right now, as sad as it is.

Best wishes to Marc Savard. His long road just got that much longer.
