Savard Still Suffering from Concussion Symptoms

Bruins training camp kicked into full effect Friday, with the veterans joining the rookies for a full team workout. Well… scratch that, not completely full.

Marc Savard, projected to be the center on the team’s top forward line, is suffering from symptoms related to post-concussion syndrome, and therefore will not be available for the start of camp. You of course remember the hit that Savard took back on March 7th from Pittsburgh’s Matt Cooke, a hit that gave Savard the concussion that he is still apparently suffering the effects from. Savard has been dealing with a reoccurence of these symptoms for the last couple of weeks, according to GM Peter Chiarelli.

Doctors evaluated the Bruins’ top center Friday afternoon, and Savard will remain off the ice until his symptoms subside. In the meantime, rookie Tyler Seguin will start camp at center in Savard’s absence, with Zach Hamill and Joe Colborne filling the void at center as well.
