CSNNE.com's Joe Haggerty is reporting that the Bruins have decided to rule Marc Savard out for the remainder of the season due to post-concussion symptoms. The Bruins center suffered a concussion in a game against the Colorado Avalanche on January 22nd. The concussion is the second for Savard in the past year after a high blindside hit by Matt Cooke of the Pittsburgh Penguins last March forced him to miss significant time last season and this season as he he dealt with post concussion syndrome.

Savard was evaluated by doctors on Friday. Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli, Marc Savard, and his agent Larry Kelly then met on Saturday to discuss the best course of action after Savard's last medical exam. According to Haggerty, they reached the conclusion that Savard should not return to game action until next season.

No formal announcement has been made by the Bruins, but Haggerty expects that the club will make an announcement on Monday. Haggerty reported that the team would make the announcement during the media availability following practice on Monday at Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington. The team has since canceled their practice and media availability on Monday.
