BOSTON, MA – Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that center Marc Savard has been diagnosed with a grade two concussion.
Savard, who was injured by a hit delivered from Matt Cooke of the Pittsburgh Penguins at 14:23 of the third period in the Bruins 2-1 loss in Pittsburgh on Sunday, traveled to Boston today where he was evaluated and diagnosed by the Bruins team doctor, Dr. Peter Asnis along with a concussion specialist from Mass General Hospital (MGH).
At the present time, there is no timetable for Savard’s return to the ice. Dr. Asnis and the Bruins’ medical staff will continue to monitor and evaluate Savard over the next 4-5 days, and at that time the team will have an update on his prognosis.
The Bruins return to action on Tuesday night when they take on the Toronto Maple Leafs at 7:00 p.m. ET at the ACC Centre in Toronto (TV: NESN, Radio: 98.5 The Sports Hub).
