BOSTON — Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli issued the following statement tonight in regards to center Marc Savard:
“As I stated on Friday, Marc Savard is suffering from symptoms related to post-concussion syndrome. He is under the care of our doctors. Any reports that suggest that there are any other issues regarding Marc, or him not playing for the Bruins this season, are completely inaccurate.
Also, as I have previously stated, when there is a change in Marc’s status, I will issue an update.”
So I guess this now officially debunks all recent rumors that No. 91 would miss the entire 2010-11 NHL season.
