Jackets Extend Savard For Two Years

News: The Blue Jackets have re-signed David Savard to a two-year deal. No terms were released.
Analysis: He tallied 15 points (five goals, 10 assists) in 70 games in 2013-14 and had 28 PIM and a plus-2 rating. He was strong in his own zone and finished with 81 blocked shots, a total good enough to put him fourth on the team in that category. He was also second on the team in hits with 149.

Jackets' Savard Gets Qualifying Offer

News: The Blue Jackets have given David Savard a qualifying offer.
Analysis: David Savard is expected to be one of the Blue Jackets' top six defensemen next season, but if another club makes a crazy offer for him Columbus probably has enough depth to let him go.

Savard Grabs Assist In Columbus loss

News: David Savard notched his fourth assist of the playoffs in Saturday's Game 5 loss to Pittsburgh in their Metropolitan Division semifinal series.
Analysis: David Savard had a mere 15 points in the regular season but sits with four points through five games as the Jackets stare down elimination on Monday. Savard has always had an offensive flair to his game, but he was overshadowed on the Jackets' blue line by Jack Johnson, James Wisniewski and the likes of Ryan Murray as far as point production. He's seeing power-play chances and has two of his four assists on the man advantage.

Jackets' Savard Dishes Two Assists Saturday

News: David Savard recorded two assists in Saturday's 4-3 double-OT win over the Penguins.
Analysis: He saw huge ice time in this one (almost 34 minutes, more than double his Game 1 TOI) and rewarded coach Todd Richards' faith. David Savard had just five goals and 15 points during the regular season though, so don't expect him to keep it up.

David Savard

Jackets' Savard Gets Fifth Goal Of Season

News: David Savard came away with his fifth goal of the season in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Lightning.
Analysis: After dishing out an assist Wednesday against the Stars, David Savard has provided points in consecutive games. However, considering this minor scoring outburst was preceded by a 19-game pointless streak, Savard shouldn't be invested in too heavily.

David Savard

Jackets' Savard Has Two-Point Night

News: David Savard scored a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Panthers.
Analysis: Talk about lightning striking twice - David Savard racked up those PP points despite playing just 31 seconds with the man advantage. His ice time should be consistent while Fedor Tyutin is sidelined, but Savard has just four goals and 13 points in 48 games for a reason. Don't expect a big offensive surge from him.

Jackets' Savard To Remain Out Thursday

News: Updating a previous report, David Savard (illness) will not play Thursday vs. the Capitals, according to Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: David Savard was viewed as probable for Thursday after sitting out the last three games, but coach Todd Richards said the defenseman isn't quite back to 100 percent health. Cody Goloubef remains in the lineup in his stead.

David Savard

Jackets' Savard Expected To Play Thursday

News: David Savard (illness) is considered probable for Thursday's game vs. the Capitals, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Although coach Todd Richards hasn't decided on his lineup yet for Thursday, it sounds like David Savard will at least be available for consideration. He's missed the previous three games with the illness.

Jackets Rule Out Savard For Monday

News: David Savard (illness) will not play Monday vs. the Hurricanes, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: With David Savard set to miss his second consecutive game, either Cody Goloubef or Tim Erixon will be paired up with Nikita Nikitin on defense. Savard's availability for Tuesday's game vs. the Senators is still in question.

Blue Jackets' Savard Out Saturday

News: David Savard (illness) is out for Saturday's game in Tampa Bay, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: David Savard woke up ill Saturday and was deemed a game-time decision. The Blue Jackets recalled Cody Goloubef, but Gouloubef won't make it to Tampa Bay in time for the game, leaving Columbus with just five active defensemen.

Blue Jackets' Savard Day-To-Day With Illness

News: David Savard (illness) will be a game-time decision according to coach Todd Richards.
Analysis: David Savard woke up ill on Saturday morning and seems doubtful to play . The team has already recalled Cody Goloubef from AHL Springfield, so they will likely keep Savard out and give him time to get better.

Jackets' Savard Expected To Play Sunday

News: David Savard (undisclosed) is expected to play Sunday against the Penguins, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: David Savard was held out of Saturday's practice, but it seems it was indeed for maintenance purposes and not due to any sort of injury that could endanger his availability for Sunday.

Jackets' Savard Not At Practice Saturday

News: David Savard missed Saturday's practice with what Blue Jackets' coach Todd Richards called a "maintenance day", the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: He also said that Tim Erixon would get the nod Sunday if David Savard can't play though, so this seems to be a bit more than just a rest day for the defenseman. For now though, assume Savard will be in the lineup Sunday against the Penguins.

David Savard

Jackets' Savard Has Two-Point Night

News: David Savard scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Flyers.
Analysis: He's already tied his previous career highs in goals (two) and assists (eight) with a lot of season yet to play. David Savard doesn't have a lot of fantasy value, but he seems to have found fairly consistent ice time this season with the Jackets.

Jackets' Savard Scores First Goal

News: David Savard scored his first goal of the year Thursday against the Rangers, an unassisted first-period tally that ended up being the game-winner.
Analysis: For the second straight game, David Savard saw more than 20 minutes of ice time, but it took him only 11:10 into the action Thursday to snap his four-game pointless skid. The 23-year-old has undeniable offensive upside -- he's been a consistent producer at the AHL level -- but has yet to successfully settle into a featured role on the Columbus blue line. He's got an opportunity right now with James Wisniewski hurt, though.

Jackets' Savard To Re-Join Lineup

News: David Savard, a healthy scratch in the last four games, will get a chance to re-join the lineup in the wake of the injury to James Wisniewsi (upper body), the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Wisniewski had been skating with rookie Ryan Murray recently, so David Savard will likely slide into that pairing. He'll get at least a couple of games to demonstrate that he deserves to escape the press box, but most likely this is just a temporary reprieve for Savard.

Jackets' Savard A Healthy Scratch Friday

News: David Savard was a healthy scratch Friday against the Oilers.
Analysis: David Savard has a plus-4 rating through 21 games this season, but it seems the Blue Jackets are content to roll with six defenseman Friday.

Jackets' Savard Keeping Spot For Now

News: Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards said that David Savard would not lose his spot on the blue line when Fedor Tyutin rejoins the lineup Saturday, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: It looks like Nikita Nikitin might be the odd man out for this one, although with seven viable NHL defensemen Richards will likely do a lot of mixing and matching to try and keep everyone fresh unless someone plays himself into the press box.

Jackets' Savard Continues His Solid Play

News: David Savard picked up his second assist of the season in Thursday's 4-1 stomping of the Sabres.
Analysis: He's played in all three games this season with Fedor Tyutin (lower body) sidelined, leaving Tim Erixon stuck in the press box, and David Savard seems to have locked down the Blue Jackets' seventh defenseman spot. When Tyutin returns to the lineup, expect Erixon to get a ticket down to AHL Springfield.

Jackets' Savard Makes The Cut

News: David Savard will begin the season on the Blue Jackets' roster, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: In a bit of a surprise, it appears as though the Jackets will carry eight defensemen on their 23-man roster to begin the season, although fear of losing David Savard on waivers likely played into that decision. He'll probably be spending a lot of time in the press box though, so don't look for much fantasy value here.

Jackets' Savard In Battle For Final Blue Line Spot

News: With Dalton Prout healthy and rookie Ryan Murray apparently having sewn up a roster spot, David Savard is in a battle with Tim Erixon, Cody Goloubef, Ilari Menart and Will Weber for the seventh spot on the Blue Jackets blue line, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: David Savard would have to clear waivers to be sent back down to AHL Springfield, as would Goloubef, so a trade before Monday's waiver deadline wouldn't be surprising given the depth the Jackets are carrying.

Jackets' Savard To Get Look In Camp

News: Dalton Prout's injury could create an opportunity for David Savard to break camp on the NHL roster, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Last year's second overall pick Ryan Murray has a big edge in the battle for any blue line openings, but if he proves not to be ready then David Savard, Cody Goloubef or Ilari Melart could take advantage. A veteran signing is also a possibility, but Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen seems comfortable with the organization's depth for the moment.

Blue Jackers Sign Savard

News: David Savard has signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Blue Jackets, the team's official website reports.
Analysis: David Savard has played in 35 career games with Columbus, totaling 2 goals and eight assists, and has spent time with the Springfield Falcons of the AHL. The 22-year-old will provide depth and flexibility under his new contract with the Blue Jackets.

Savard Recalled By Blue Jackets

News: David Savard has been recalled from AHL Springfield, the Blue Jackets' official site reports.
Analysis: David Savard, who has recorded a 5-26-31 line with 40 penalty minutes in 60 games with Springfield to date, gets the call from the big club, with fellow blueliner Adrian Aucoin currently banged up.

Jackets Assign Savard To Minors

News: David Savard was assigned to AHL Springfield on Saturday, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The Blue Jackets made the move with the expectation that James Wisniewski (concussion) expected to return to the lineup Sunday. David Savard appeared in three games during his stint with the Blue Jackets, scoring no points and accruing a minus-3 rating.
