Jackets' Savard Notches Two Assists

News: David Savard picked up two assists and was a plus-3 in Friday's win over the Sabres.
Analysis: David Savard is finishing the season strong, notching nine points in his last 12 games. Skating on the top defensive pairing with Jack Johnson, Savard has put together a great season, recording 11 goals and 35 points. With 67 PIM, three power-play goals and 108 shots on goal, this emerging fantasy stud isn't going to be able to fly under the radar in most fantasy leagues next season.

Jackets' Savard Gets Assist, Four PIM In Win

News: David Savard recorded an assist and four PIM in Saturday's win over the Blues.
Analysis: David Savard isn't lighting up the score sheet, but with a goal and three assists over his last six games, he's certainly making an impact of late for the Blue Jackets. The assist Saturday gives him 30 points on the campaign, which may only represent the baseline for the 24-year-old's production over the next few years.

Jackets' Savard Hits Double-Digit Goals

News: David Savard scored his 10th goal of the year Tuesday in a 5-3 loss to the Capitals.
Analysis: Few prognosticators -- if any -- foresaw David Savard doubling his goal total from last year with this much season to go, but even so, he has a modest 25 points in 63 games. For what it's worth, though, four of those points have come in the last six contests.

Two Helpers For Jackets' Savard

News: David Savard handed out assists on both Columbus goals Thursday in a 5-2 loss to the Canadiens.
Analysis: Despite the losing effort, it's another entry in a series of recent productive efforts for David Savard, who's picked up seven points over his last 10 games. He makes a reasonable add for the back end of the fantasy blue line for owners in need.

Jackets' Savard Gathers Two Points In Loss

News: David Savard registered a goal and an assist in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Kings.
Analysis: With a couple of injured mates, David Savard continued to see an uptick in his ice time as he skated for 23:44 in the loss, well up from his season average. The blueliner has 20 points on the season, including four in the last five games, and could be worthy of consideration in deeper formats.

Jackets' Savard Tallies Assist In Win

News: David Savard chipped in with an assist in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Senators.
Analysis: With James Wisniewski (lower body) and Ryan Murray (ankle) both missing Saturday, David Savard saw his ice time rise to 23:15, about a minute more than his season average. Murray is slated to miss the next four-to-six weeks, while Wisniewski's projected return date remains unknown, providing Savard ample opportunity to see further action on the top pairing with Jack Johnson. The 24-year-old has already attained fantasy relevance in deeper leagues, as his seven goals and 18 points over 51 games indicate he possesses a little more scoring upside than most blueliners.

David Savard

Jackets' Savard Gets Third Game-Winner

News: David Savard registered the game-winning goal in Sunday's defeat of the Avalanche.
Analysis: David Savard has made his seven snipes on the season count, as three of them have been of the game-winning variety. The 24-year-old is enjoying a solid season with 14 points across 37 games, which is probably enough to keep him on the radar in deeper leagues.

Jackets' Savard Picks Up Two Assists Saturday

News: David Savard recorded two assists, two shots on goal, four PIM and eight hits in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Penguins.
Analysis: His minus-9 rating is a little hard to swallow, but David Savard has become a potential fantasy asset in deep leagues with 11 points (five goals, six assists) and 20 PIM in 29 games, as well as 38 blocked shots and 65 hits for owners in leagues that use those categories.

David Savard

Jackets' Savard Notches Fourth Goal

News: David Savard tallied his fourth goal of the season in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Sharks.
Analysis: With seven points in 17 games, the 24-year-old David Savard is already halfway to his point total from last season. He's benefited greatly from an uptick of nearly five minutes of ice time per game from 2013-14, and should remain a mainstay on the blue line for the Blue Jackets even after Saturday's acquisition of Jordan Leopold from St. Louis.

David Savard

Jackets' Savard Picks Up First Goal Saturday

News: David Savard scored his first goal of the season during Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Senators.
Analysis: He's off to a bit of a rough start on the defensive end, racking up a quick minus-4 through five games, but David Savard's seeing regular time as part of the Jackets' second power play unit and should easily be able to top last season's career bests of five goals and 15 points.

David Savard

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.

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.

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.
