  • Blue Jackets' David Savard: Could see reduced minutes in final games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/8/17) Savard might have his ice time reduced over the final two games of the regular season, Tom Reed of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    The Blue Jackets' depth on the blue line has been tested down the stretch with both Zach Werenski (shoulder) and Ryan Murray (hand) sidelined, and now that their first-round playoff matchup is set in stone, coach John Tortorella may want to give his key defensemen a bit of a break prior to their postseason showdown with the Penguins. Savard has carried a heavy load this season, averaging 21:46 a night, and if Werenski can't return for the start of the playoffs that ice time will probably increase with Savard and Jack Johnson forming the Jackets' most reliable defensive duo. Getting fewer shifts this weekend might help keep some pep in Savard's postseason step.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Scores goal in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/23/17) 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.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Tallies goal for second straight night

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/12/17) 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.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Scores first-period goal against Sabres

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/11/17) 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.
