BOSTON -- The last time Boston Bruins forward Marc Savard held a news conference at TD Garden, it was on Feb. 7, 2011, to announce that his season was over due to post-concussion syndrome.
He hasn't played since Jan. 9, 2011, when he suffered his second concussion in a 10-month period. He wasn't in Vancouver when his teammates hoisted the Stanley Cup on June 15, either.
Savard returned to the Garden on Saturday to officially announce that he has purchased a luxury suite through the 2013-14 season in the arena that will host pediatric patients from Children's Hospital Boston with a focus on children suffering from the effects of head trauma. He believes it's a small token he can give back to Boston and still be connected to the Bruins organization in some way.
