Savard found twine in a 5-2 loss to the Maple Leafs on Wednesday. The blueliner also fired a hearty seven shots on goal, giving him 114 in 64 games this season. Savard's most impressive stat is easily his plus-27 rating; his 22 points leave something to be desired, considering he put up 36 two campaigns ago.
Savard scored a goal and posted four shots in 23:53 of ice time during a 5-3 loss to the Sabres on Saturday. The 26-year-old only has five goals and 20 points this season, but he scored twice this weekend. Savard also has recorded three goals and seven points in the last nine contests. Savard might not have the same scoring touch as he did when he scored 11 times in 2014-15, but he's heating up, and owners have to like his career-best plus-25 rating.
Savard recorded a goal, three shots on net, a blocked shot, a minor penalty and a plus-1 rating during Friday's win over Buffalo. While the 26-year-old blueliner isn't an offensive force, he regularly tilts the scales in the peripheral categories. Through his past 13 games, Savard has collected two goals, seven points, 27 shots, 27 blocked shots, 12 PIM, 19 hits and a plus-6 rating. Those numbers move the needle in deeper fantasy settings. However, it's worth noting that Savard doesn't receive many looks with the man advantage.
Savard had a big game Saturday against the Islanders, scoring a goal, adding two assists and finishing plus-5 in a 7-0 romp. It's Savard's first multi-point effort of the season and his first career three-point game. He now has 16 points on the season, but just four points in his last 10 games. Savard had a great game, but don't be sucked in by the points -- he's just not delivering enough offense to be reliable in the fantasy arena.
Savard (back) will suit up Saturday against the Red Wings, Mark Scheig of Hockey Writers reports. After missing eight of the past nine games due to back spasms, Savard will take Scott Harrington's position Saturday against Detroit. The 26-year-old was never exactly a stat hog before the injury, though. The blueliner has been averaging 21:24 TOI this season, but he has only two goals and 10 assists in 45 games to show for it. Savard had a productive season last year (25 points, 65 games), but injuries may be breaking up his chances at gaining momentum, making him more of a wait-and-see.
