The Boston Bruins have reportedly had discussions about whether to shut down centre Marc Savard for the rest of the season as he battles the fourth concussion of his career.



According to ESPNBoston.com, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli admitted that "there is a strong possibility [of shutting him down], but you have to take it step by step".



Savard suffered his latest concussion on Jan. 22 during a game in Colorado. His head hit the corner glass on a check by Avalanche defenceman Matt Hunwick, and Savard had to be helped to the dressing room bleeding from the face.
