Savard will be in Boston for parade

BOSTON -- Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said Friday morning that Marc Savard was scheduled to arrive in Boston on Friday night and he will participate in the Stanley Cup championship parade on Saturday.

Savard was limited to 25 games during the 2010-2011 season due to a pair of concussions in a ninth-month period. He was not in Vancouver for the Cup-clinching Game 7 in Vancouver.

Chiarelli said he’s hoping Savard, along with rookie defenseman Steve Kampfer, will be allowed to have their names on the Cup.

“I don’t know what the process is, but I’ve given it a little bit of thought,” Chiarelli said. “Certainly those two deserve to be on. We’ll see what we can do to get them on and go from there.”
