WILMINGTON -- Marc Savard was scheduled to meet with team doctors on Friday. General manager Peter Chiarelli said there wouldn't be an update for a few days, as he is also scheduled to meet with Savard and his agent over the weekend.

Call-up Zach Hamill will get a look on Saturday in the Bruins lineup against the San Jose Sharks. During Friday's practice, he centered a line with Blake Wheeler and Michael Ryder, while Tyler Seguin moved down to the wing with Gregory Campbell and Shawn Thornton.

Chiarelli said that as of right now, Hamill is just "getting a look" and that it could possibly end up being more than that.

Thornton left practice early on Friday, but coach Claude Julien said he'll be playing on Saturday against the Sharks.

"Let's put it this way, he wasn't 100 percent, and I told him to get off," said Julien. "There are banged up players at this time of year, but not banged up enough to miss a game, but certainly want to give him the best opportunity to be ready for Saturday."
