The concussion suffered by Boston Bruins
center Marc Savard
last week likely will keep him out for the remainder of the 2009-10 season.
Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli told ESPN Thursday that Savard met with a neuropsychological specialist at Massachusetts General Hospital, and the report he received was that, "it doesn't look good for the rest of the year."
Savard suffered a Grade 2 concussion when Pittsburgh's Matt Cooke
hit him in the head during Sunday's Bruins-Penguins game. Savard was knocked unconscious and had to be taken off the ice on a stretcher. Cooke was not penalized on the play.
Injuries have limited Savard, ninth in the League in scoring last season with 88 points, to just 33 points in 41 games.
