Marc Savard injury: Bruins forward sees 'no comeback' in foreseeable future

Marc Savard admitted via Twitter Monday that he felt his concussions would probably end his hockey career, although the Boston Bruins forward is still attempting a comeback.


Marc Savard tweeted that he doesn't foresee a return to hockey, but that he plans on continuing to try after missing the entire 2011-2012 season with post-concussion symptoms.

Savard's career has been derailed by a series of concussions. He tweeted several times Monday morning following an attempt at working out with a trainer, saying that he didn't think he would be able to play hockey any time soon -- likely ever.

He followed that up with a more hopeful tweet, but admitted his odds aren't high:

The 35-year-old hasn't played since Jan. 23, 2011. He suffered a Grade 2 concussion in 2010 that ended that season prematurely, although he returned for the playoffs. He took the ice again the next year, but a concussion suffered less than a year after the first major blow ended that season as well. Savard has been with the Bruins since 2006-2007. He had signed a seven-year contract in 2009 worth $4 million a season.
