Report: Memory problems plague Marc Savard

A source has told ESPN.com’s Pierre LeBrun [1] that Bruins center Marc Savard [2] is dealing with “real memory problems and he’s quite worried about it.”

Savard, who was placed on long-term injured reserve in February with his second concussion in less than a year, was last injured on Jan. 22 when he sustained a concussion after being checked into the boards by Matt Hunwick. The injury came after he missed the first 23 games of the 2010-11 season due to post-concussion symptoms stemming from a concussion suffered on March 7, 2010 thanks to a hit from Pittsburgh’s Matt Cooke [3].

Savard said in February that he didn’t know what his future held.

“I’m not going to make any decision about my future until I get some more medical stuff done,” he said. “I’ve just got to be patient going forward.”
