Canadian media outlets, including TSN, caught up with Bruins center Marc Savard Monday as he had his day with the Stanley Cup in Peterborough, Ontario. Savard, who is recovering from his second concussion in as many seasons, said he is still have memory loss issues as well as other symptoms of post-concussion syndrome.
"It's obviously been a long road for me. I'm still suffering with a lot of daily issues, right now it's been a tough go," Savard told reporters. "I'm just trying to get through and not worry about hockey right now, just worry about my health because I have three young kids and they're important to me."
"Mornings have been tough. When I get up in the morning I'm a little foggy sometimes," Savard continued. "But as the day wears on I'm pretty good. Hot sun is tough. I try to stay in the shade and stuff like that and pop the odd Advil and it seems to be okay."
"At the end of the year it was a pretty emotional time; Peter told me that they are doing a petition to put me on the Cup. That's special. That's how good of a man he's been and that's why he's gotten to where he is and deserves everything he's had. Hopefully I get on it. It would be great, but you never know."
Savard occasionally made it to Boston to watch his team in the playoffs, but he could not make the plane trips to Tampa or Vancouver due to his PCS. Though he could only play in 25 games last year and falls short of the requirement to get his name on the Cup (41 regular season games or one Cup finals game), Bruins general manager petitioned for he and Steven Kampfer (38 regular season games, no playoff games) to get on the Cup.
"At the end of the year it was a pretty emotional time. Peter told me that they are doing a petition to put me on the Cup," Savard said. "That's special. That's how good of a man he's been and that's why he's gotten to where he is and deserves everything he's had. Hopefully I get on it."
