(NECN: Boston) - Boston Bruins center Marc Savard has been shut down for the remainder of the season.
In a game against the Colorado Avalanche n January 22, Savard suffered his second concussion in less than a year, when he was checked into the boards by former teammate Matt Hunwick.
Savard also sustained a concussion against Pittsburgh on March 7, 2010 after a check by Matt Cooke. Savard missed the last 18 games of the season but returned in the Eastern Conference semifinals, where he scored the overtime winner in Game One.
At a press conference Monday, Savard said he is improving, but still has headaches and dizziness.
"The scariest thing," he says. "Is little memory things."
