David Savard News
Montreal Canadiens defenseman David Savard (hand) will be welcomed back into the lineup Sunday against Nashville. The veteran blue-liner broke his hand early into the season and will return from a 22-game absence. Before getting hurt, Savard skated in five games, posting two assists with four shots on goal, four hits, and 14 blocks. The team has announced that the decision on who comes out of the lineup to accommodate Savard will be made after warmups.
Montreal Canadiens defenseman David Savard will miss 6-8 weeks of action due to a fractured left hand. He was injured in Monday's matchup versus Buffalo, leaving Montreal without another big piece from the back after Kaiden Guhle (upper body) got knocked out of the lineup. Justin Barron replaced Savard on the first defensive pairing on Tuesday against New Jersey and scored in a second consecutive game. He'll be carrying some extra fantasy value until the injuries in defense clear up for Montreal.
Montreal Canadiens defenseman David Savard has been ruled out indefinitely with an upper-body injury. Savard was injured in Monday's 3-1 victory over Buffalo. This is another blow for the Canadiens blue line, which already lost Kaiden Guhle (upper body) a couple of games back. Savard collected his second point of the season Monday via an assist and has tallied four shots on goal, four hits, and 14 blocks with a plus-two rating in five games. He's been partnering with Mike Matheson on the first defensive pairing, and there's a backline shuffle coming up for Tuesday's matchup against the Devils. Gustav Lindstrom has been called up from the AHL on an emergency basis to replace Savard in the lineup.
Montreal Canadiens defenseman David Savard (undisclosed) is regarded as a game-time decision for Thursday's matchup against Florida. He missed the morning skate with an unspecified ailment and the veteran might have to skip his 14th game of the season. Savard has seen heavy usage on the first defensive pairing, but he's never been a very prolific player and the 2022-23 campaign has so far brought him 20 points with 63 shots on goal, 61 hits and 176 blocks.
