Bruins’ Marc Savard having memory problems

 

Boston Bruins veteran forward is not ready to call it a career, despite currently dealing with memory loss as a result of his latest concussion.  This 33 year-old, who in February suffered his second concussion in less than a year, is currently on the long term injury reserve list.  According to various sources Savard, who has scored two goals and 10 points, is currently worried about his recent memory loss problems. Still he isn’t ready to make any decisions regarding his career. “I’m not going to make any decision about my future until I get some more medical stuff done, said Savard, who has scored 207 goals and 499 assists while playing for the New York Rangers, Calgary Flames, Atlanta Thrashers and Boston Bruins. I’ve just got to be patient going forward. My agent talked to me a lot, and he gave me time to think about a lot of things. It’s going to be tough … especially watching them play.” Savard suffered his latest concussion on January 22 when playing against the Colorado Avalanche. He was checked heavily into the endboards by defenceman, Matt Hunwick. (Savard’s former teammate). Back on March 7, 2010, Savard was the victim of a cheap hit by Pittsburgh Penguins forward, Matt Cooke, and as a result,  missed the final 18 games of the regular season and a round of the play-offs, due to a concussion. Last summer Savard was still experiencing post concussion symptoms, including feeling sleepy all the time and dealing with bouts of depression.
