Marc Savard‘s playing career may or may not be over, but when Savard hangs up his stick for good, he might be ready to grab a clipboard.
Savard tweeted last week that he thinks he’s “very interested” in coaching hockey at a high level. While that might not exactly mean the NHL, Savard seems open to something in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), which could always be a springboard for future endeavors.
Savard, of course, hasn’t appeared in a game since January 2011 because of post-concussion syndrome. The 35-year-old inked a seven-year contract extension with the Bruins in 2009, but hits from Matt Cooke and Matt Hunwick have put Savard’s career in jeopardy, as the forward still suffers from symptoms such as headaches and memory loss.
Savard has maintained a positive attitude throughout his difficult time, but it’s obvious the game is still very much in his blood. Perhaps coaching will eventually be a way for him to scratch his hockey itch.

Fans are obviously upset about the ongoing NHL lockout. We all miss our teams, and would rather be at games than trying to watch players on grainy European feeds. Many fans have taken to protesting the lockout, and rather seriously, at that. Of course, these well-meaning protests have fallen on deaf ears, so why not have a little bit of fun with it?

Bobby Carpenter may not have quite lived up to the potential that landed him on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 1981, but he did put together a serviceable 21-year career that included four seasons with the Boston Bruins.
He also raised his daughter, Alex Carpenter, to be one heck of a hockey player, herself. Ranked as one of the top women’s hockey players in the country, the...
The Bruins had already survived one Game 7 against the Canadiens in the first round of the 2011 playoffs. So as the B’s prepared for a second winner-take-all game, this time against the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Eastern Conference finals, fans should have been prepared to strap in for another roller-coaster ride.
If only it was that easy.
