BOSTON (CBS) – Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli said center Marc Savard won’t play this season and that it is “very unlikely” he will play again, according to the Boston Globe’s Fluto Shinzawa.

Savard hasn’t played since Jan. 22, when he suffered his second severe concussion in as many seasons.

“Marc Savard won’t play this year,” Chiarelli told the Globe. “Nothing has changed in our monitoring. He’ll be examined and he’ll be declared unfit to play.”

The 34-year-old’s career has not been the same since March 7, 2010 when he was blind-sided on a hit by Penguin Matt Cooke.

Chiarelli believes his playing career may be in jeopardy.

“Based on what I see, what I hear, what I read, and what I’m told, it’s very unlikely Marc will play again,” Chiarelli said. “Now, knowing the uncertainty of this injury, there’s always a chance [he could play]. But based on what I’m told, it’s very unlikely he’ll play. As an employer, I support him and hope he gets back to living a healthy life.”

    Now Montreal THIS IS WHAT A POLICE MATTER SHOULD BE!!!!! Your player was in the movies a few days after the hit & was reported to have a concussion. Savard got truly blindsided and hasn’t be full strength since. Yet you waste money investigating what you call a criminal hit? TAKE OFF, EH!!!! This man might not be able to play again and now I think he should go after the Penguins for shelter that cheap-shot artist and Matt Cooke himself for loss pay and anything that he might have gotten if Cooke was a real man and hit cleanly.
