    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Gets full shift in Saturday's return

    Savard received 19:48 TOI in his return from an oblique injury Saturday, recording a plus-1 rating with four shots on net, three blocks shots and two hits. His ice time is likely to trend downwards a little now that Seth Jones has established himself as the Jackets' number one blueliner, but Savard should still see heavy usage on one of Columbus' top two pairs. Without big power play minutes, however, he'll have a hard time matching last season's 11 goals and 36 points, so don't expect a big second half from Savard in most fantasy formats.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Ready to rock Saturday

    As expected, Savard (oblique) will return to the lineup Saturday night against the visiting Senators. Columbus may be last in the Metropolitan Division standings, but the team is still fighting hard with a 5-3-2 record over the past 10 games. Savard's presence in the lineup has significant implications as he's averaged just over 24 minutes per game this season and has a playmaker's touch as well. The fourth-year blueliner has recorded 16 points in 39 games this season.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Activated off injured reserve

    Savard (oblique) was activated off injured reserve Friday. Savard has missed the Blue Jackets' last 11 games with an oblique strain, but was a full participant in Monday's practice, which was the first indication that he was likely nearing a return to game action. The Blue Jackets will welcome the 25-year-old blueliner back to the lineup with open arms, as he has averaged over 24 minutes of ice time per game when healthy this season. Savard will likely slot back into the lineup as a top-four defender Saturday against the Senators.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Full participant Monday, doubtful for Tuesday

    Savard (oblique) was a full participant at Monday's practice, but coach John Tortorella indicated after practice that he remains "day-to-day" and isn't expected to play Tuesday. While Savard still seems unlikely to dress for Tuesday's contest, the fact that he participated fully in practice Monday and is considered just day-to-day bodes well for a potential return in the near future. Assuming he misses Tuesday as expected, his next to rejoin the lineup would then come Thursday against the Ducks.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Practices Wednesday

    Savard (oblique) participated in Wednesday's practice, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports. After skating at the tail-end of Monday's practice, Savard lasted for the whole session Wednesday. When Savard will return is unclear, but it seems to be sooner rather than later following Wednesday's news. Even after Seth Jones was acquired on Jan. 6, Savard still averaged 23:38 of time on ice per game in the three full contests he played, so he should continue to see top-three minutes upon his return.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Able to skate Monday

    Savard (oblique) is traveling with the Blue Jackets on their current road trip and was briefly on the ice towards the end of Monday's practice, The Columbus Dispatch reports. He's still a couple of weeks away from returning to action, at least according to the original recovery timetable announced by the team, but Savard is beginning to ramp up his activity level.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Out approximately four weeks

    Savard will miss approximately four weeks with what's been deemed an oblique strain, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports. Savard's injury was initially listed as upper body, but the team has now specified and given an exact timetable. It wouldn't be surprising if the blueliner ends up on injured reserve because of it, but that move hasn't been made yet. His projected timeline would put Savard's return date at some time during the middle of February, but more clarity should come on that as it approaches.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Out for extended period

    Savard (upper body) will miss an extended period of time after suffering the injury Wednesday in Toronto. This is an enormous loss for the Jackets, as Savard has logged over 24 minutes per game and recorded 16 points through 39 games this season. Further updates should be given when Savard nears a return, but expect Dalton Prout or Fedor Tyutin to fill Savard's spot in the lineup for the time being.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Exits with upper-body injury

    Savard has been ruled out of the remainder of Wednesday's game against the Maple Leafs with an upper-body injury. It would be a huge blow to the Jackets' defense if Savard is forced to miss extended time, as he's been great of late, tallying three points (one goal, two assists) and 13 shots on goal in Columbus' last five games. Expect an update on the 25-year-old blueliner's status ahead of Saturday's game against the Avalanche.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Pots first of season

    Savard scored his first goal of the year Tuesday, but it wasn't enough in a 5-2 loss to the Islanders. At the time, the 25-year-old blueliner's tally tied the game 2-2, but it was all downhill from there. After Savard poured 11 pucks into the net last season, it's surprising to see it take 38 games for him to find twine in 2015-16, but the Jackets have struggled as a team. Although he comes with fairly significant plus-minus risk, Savard's offensive upside still plays in a lot of fantasy formats.
