BOSTON (AP) - Bruins star Marc Savard has been suffering from symptoms of post-concussion syndrome and was unavailable for the start of training camp.

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said Friday that Savard was in "good spirits" and he's "anxious to get back," but the team is taking it day by day.

Savard sustained a concussion on March 7 as a result of a hit by Pittsburgh's Matt Cooke. He missed the remained of the regular season and did not return to the Bruins' lineup until the first game of the team's second-round playoff series with Philadelphia.

Chiarelli said that Savard had felt fine and was training hard until he reported the symptoms within the last couple weeks. Chiarelli would not reveal the nature of the symptoms.
