(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.

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."
