David Savard News
Montreal Canadiens defenseman David Savard (upper body) will re-enter the lineup Tuesday against Nashville. He has finally recovered from an upper-body problem and will be back after missing 13 games. The veteran has tallied eight points in 24 outings this season, producing 24 shots on net, 19 hits and 74 blocks. He has been used in all situations and averages over 22 minutes per game. Savard will be replacing Johnathan Kovacevic in the lineup and is set to link up with Jordan Harris at the back.
Montreal Canadiens defenseman David Savard (upper body) has been ruled out for 2-3 weeks. He will miss a fifth consecutive game Wednesday against Ottawa and we won't be seeing him until after the holiday break. The veteran has been a beast on the defensive end with 74 blocks and 24 games, and he has also chipped in offensively with one goal and seven assists. Savard averages over 22 minutes of ice time and filling his skates hasn't been easy. Everybody on the backline has started to log more minutes, with their workload also increasing due to Mike Matheson's (lower body) injury. He will miss a third consecutive game Wednesday.
Montreal Canadiens defenseman David Savard will miss Monday's matchup against Vancouver with an upper-body injury. He will miss his first game of the season and Montreal considers Savard day-to-day. Savard has been a shot-blocking machine for Montreal, throwing himself in front of 74 shots in 24 games, and he has chipped in a bit offensively as well, registering eight points. The 32-year-old has been skating on the first defensive pairing with Mike Matheson and is averaging the second-most minutes on the team, so Savard's absence is set to leave a significant gap on the Canadiens blue line. With another game coming up on Tuesday, it's possible that he will be forced to miss multiple games.
David Savard will call the Montreal Canadiens home for the next four seasons. The veteran defenseman signed a deal on Wednesday that will pay him $3.5 million AAV. Though this contract offers no-trade protection, the deal gives Savard a $500,000 bonus for the final year. The middle years pay Savard $4.2 million while the first and last year may him $2.8 million each. While the defender may not shoot the puck on the net quite as he did in his early years, Savard still has some fantasy relevance. The defenseman regularly breaks 100 hits and 100 blocked shots a season which makes him a decent add in rotisserie leagues. Could Savard chip in 15 points or so with Montreal? That is entirely possible as well.
