BOSTON, MA – Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli, Head Team Physician Dr. Peter Asnis and forward Marc Savard will hold a press conference at 2:00 p.m. ET at the TD Garden Gray Walls Area in Boston (100 Legends Way, Third Floor, Boston, MA 02114) on Monday, February 7. The press conference will be streamed live on the Bruins website, www.bostonbruins.com and broadcast live on NESN.
It will be announced at that time that Savard will be shut-down for the remainder of the 2010-2011 season. Savard missed 23 games to start the season when he was recovering from his previous head trauma and depression.
With Savard shut down, it is unclear what direction Chiarelli and President Cam Neely will go to replace the injured center on the roster.
