Bruins forward Savard will miss the 2011-12 season with effects of concussion

BOSTON - Boston Bruins forward Marc Savard will miss the entire 2011-12 season because he is still feeling the effects of post-concussion syndrome.

That's what Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli told the Boston Globe. Chiarelli said "it's very unlikely Marc will play again."

Savard's was hit by Colorado's Matt Hunwick on Jan. 22 and he missed the rest of the season. It was Savard's second concussion in 10 months.

The Bruins went on to win their first Stanley Cup since 1972.
