  • Canadiens' David Savard: Provides two points vs. Chicago

    Savard contributed a goal and an assist in a 5-2 win over Chicago on Friday.

    Savard has provided an incredible two goals and four points over his last two contests. That's propelled him up to three goals and seven points in 11 games this year. Clearly, Savard's recent success has heavily skewed his offensive numbers, and he isn't likely to maintain his current pace. The 33-year-old finished the 2022-23 campaign with 20 points in 62 outings, which is a better reflection of what you should expect out of him this year.

    Savard is set for a long-term absence after sustaining the injury Monday versus the Sabres. The 33-year-old blueliner will likely be out until early December at the earliest. Gustav Lindstrom was called up to take Savard's roster spot earlier Tuesday, though Kaiden Guhle (upper body) may take over that position once he shakes off his injury.

  • Canadiens' David Savard: Out indefinitely

  • Canadiens' David Savard: Sacrifices body in Monday's victory

    Savard posted an assist with five blocked shots in Monday's 3-1 win over the Sabres.

    Savard ended up with a plus-1 rating and one shot on goal, but the big news was his game-high five blocked shots. In fact, the rest of his team combined had 12 total blocks, so the rearguard was really out there sacrificing for his team. The Canadiens are back on the ice at Bell Centre on Tuesday against the Devils.

  • Canadiens' David Savard: Logs assist in loss

    Savard logged an assist, two shots on goal, one blocked shot and three hits over 18:49 of ice time in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Wild.

    Savard was the primary helper late in the third period, dishing a pretty feed to Alex Newhook for Montreal's second goal. It was Savard's first point of the season. He's not known for his offense and needs to deliver value in the blocked shot and hit categories, although his 61 hits over 62 games last season was a serious reduction from the previous campaign. Tuesday's three checks were his first of the season.

  • Canadiens' David Savard: Receives green light

  • Canadiens' David Savard: Officially shut down

    Savard (knee) won't play again this season.

    Savard sustained the injury Tuesday versus the Flyers, and with the Canadiens near the bottom of the standings, there's no point in rushing him back. He ends 2022-23 with 20 points, 176 blocked shots, 61 hits and a minus-14 rating in 62 appearances.

  • Canadiens' David Savard: Still out Saturday

  • Canadiens' David Savard: Unlikely to play Thursday

    Savard (lower body) took warmups but didn't participate in line rushes Thursday, indicating he'll be out for the game versus the Panthers, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.

    Savard's injury popped up after the Canadiens' last game, and it appears it'll cost him at least one appearance. The 32-year-old is set to be replaced by Chris Wideman in the lineup. Savard will try to be ready for Saturday's game versus the Hurricanes.

  • Canadiens' David Savard: Game-time decision Thursday

    Savard (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision according to coach Martin St. Louis.

    Savard has three goals, 20 points and 176 blocked shots this season. He has been a top-pairing defenseman for a floundering team but sees little time --averaging nine seconds per game -- on the power play.

  • Canadiens' David Savard: Garners assist in win

    Savard logged an assist, two shots on goal, one hit and one blocked shot over 24:48 of ice time in Monday's 4-3 shootout win over Buffalo.

    Savard assisted on Alex Belzile's second-period tally for his fourth helper in his last eight outings. With 20 points in 60 contests, Savard is having a typical campaign. The one thing that jumps out is a reduction in hits. Savard habitually delivers multiple hits per game -- normally in triple digits for a full year -- but the 32-year-old has just 60 this season.

  • Canadiens' David Savard: Records assist in Thursday's loss

    Savard posted an assist, two PIM, two hits and three blocked shots in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Kings.

    Savard has been a solid contributor with eight points over his last 24 contests. The 32-year-old defenseman continues to log top-four minutes as a more defensive presence, but he's chipping in just enough offense to be interesting in deep fantasy formats. For the season, Savard's at 16 points, 46 shots on net, 140 blocked shots, 37 hits, 38 PIM and a minus-11 rating through 48 outings.
