Bruins forward Marc Savard, whose 2010-11 season ended Jan. 22 when he suffered a concussion, is still complaining of headaches, according to general manager Peter Chiarelli.
Neither Savard nor the Bruins have ruled out the possibility of Savard playing in 2011-12 or beyond. However, given the nature and history of his head injuries, it is virtually guaranteed that he will not start the season. Savard, who turned 34 July 17, is signed through 2016-17.
Savard’s condition will not prevent him from participating in the Kawartha Invitational amateur golf tournament this weekend in his hometown of Peterborough, Ontario. Savard’s day with the Stanley Cup will be Monday, the final day of the tournament, at Kawartha Golf & Country Club. There has yet to be a decision on whether Savard’s name will be engraved on the Cup.
