Report: Bruins’ Marc Savard to join Ottawa 67’s

Aug 11, 2014, 12:04 PM EDT

It appears Marc Savard has found his next job.

The Boston Bruins forward, who remains on long-term injured reserved with the NHL club, is set to join the Ontario Hockey League’s Ottawa 67’s as a scout.

The report comes from XM Radio’s Chris Stevenson:

Savard has not played since suffering a concussion on a hit from Matt Hunwick of the Colorado Avalanche in January 2011.

It was his second concussion after he received a blindsided head shot from, then Penguins forward, Matt Cooke in March 2010.

The 37-year-old has missed the past three seasons with post-concussion syndrome.

According to CapGeek, Savard is scheduled to make $2.65 million in final three seasons of his seven-year, $28 million contract, which kicked in during the 2010-11 season.

The former fourth-round pick of the New York Rangers has 207 goals and 706 points in 807 games with the Rangers, Calgary Flames, Atlanta Thrashers and Bruins.
