According to Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe, Marc Savard has been suffering from post concussion syndrome symptoms. Savard will not be ready for the start of training camp and there is no timetable on his potential return. Shinzawa also noted that Savard has not been able to work out in recent weeks.
With Savard’s health in question and the possibility he may not be ready for the start of the season, it allows the Bruins to consider young forwards Joe Colborne and Jordan Caron as potential wingers to make the club. This also means the Bruins will keep Tyler Seguin at center until Savard is ready to return. There is also the possibility the coaching staff opts for a veteran, such as Jeremy Reich, pushing Daniel Paille up to a top 9 spot.
