  • Blue Jackets' David Savard: Scores rare goal in victory over Flyers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/8/17) Savard picked up a goal in the 2-1 overtime victory against the Flyers on Sunday.

    It was his first point in nine games and first goal since Nov. 4. With a plus-22 rating, the shutdown defenseman has one of the best plus/minuses in the NHL, but he doesn't usually supply much in the scoring department. Savard has two goals and 11 points in 39 games. He once scored 11 goals in one season, but he has just 12 goals over the other five seasons of his career.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Picks up assist against Calgary

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/17/16) Savard registered an assist, three shots on net, a minor penalty and a plus-2 rating during Friday's win over the Flames.

    Savard is quietly having an excellent fantasy stretch with five assists, 22 shots, 18 blocked shots, eight PIM, 15 hits and a plus-12 rating through his past 10 games. Columbus continues to be a league juggernaut, and Savard's cross-category production plays in deep seasonal leagues. Just beware that his lack of power-play time (just 15 second per game) limits his offensive upside.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Registers five shots on net

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/23/16) Savard fired five shots on net over 20:38 of ice time during Wednesday's loss to Calgary.

    It was a season-high mark in the shot column for the 25-year-old defenseman, but with the arrival of Seth Jones last season and the emergence of Zach Werenski this year, Savard is locked into a supporting role. In fact, Savard entered Wednesday's game with just 18 shots on net through the first 17 games of the season while averaging just 15 seconds of power-play time. He hardly warrants fantasy attention at this point.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Scores first of year in dominate win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/5/16) Savard lit the lamp and added a plus-2 rating during Friday's 10-0 wallop of the Canadiens.

    Savard is not a regular scorer, but when your team drops 10, odds are you get in on the fun. The 26-year-old blueliner is off to a decent start to 2016-17, earning just three points through nine games, but he does have a plus-2 rating. The 2009 fourth-round pick had his season cut short last year, but he was well on his way to surpassing 30 points for a second straight campaign. If he keeps a clean bill of health, Savard is a candidate to challenge his career high and improve upon it.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Apparently healthy, ready for top-four role

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/20/16) Savard is expected to start the 2016-17 campaign as a top-four defenseman, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    Not much has been made of Savard's season-ending surgery to correct a bone chip in his foot last April, but that suggests that he's good to go entering a new campaign. The 25-year-old has seen his ice time climb in three straight seasons, including on special teams, where he averaged 2:08 on the power play and 2:55 shorthanded in 2015-16. While Columbus is far from a dangerous offensive team, it's worth noting that Savard averaged roughly 0.42 points per game the past two years, making him a sneaky fantasy option to target in the late rounds of drafts.

    Savard recorded an assist and four PIM in Saturday's win over the Blues.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.
