David Savard: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Savard didn't acquit himself too badly in his first look at the NHL, scoring 10 points and managing a plus-minus of zero in 31 games (not bad at all when you're toiling for the worst team in the league). He continues to see competition flow into the organization, with second-overall pick Ryan Murray and former Ranger prospect Tim Erixon joining Savard and John Moore to form what could be an impressive core of young blueliners in a few years, and, as a result Savard could remain on the AHL-NHL shuttle until Columbus starts phasing out its veteran defensemen to make room for the future.
John Moore was the more heralded prospect coming into last season, but it was Savard who hit the ground running in his first crack at the pros, and he rang up 11 goals and 43 points in 72 AHL games. Savard's still a little rough around the edges at both ends of the rink but he'll likely be among the first defensemen called up to Columbus this season if injuries strike the blue line, and if he works his way onto the first power play unit next to James Wisniewski he could provide some surprising production as a rookie.
Two-way defense prospect begins his pro career after a 13-64-77 showing in 64 QMJHL games last season.
