  • Blue Jackets' David Savard: First career three-point game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/25/17) 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.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Back in action Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/11/17) 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.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Returns to practice Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/10/17) Savard (back) was able to take part in Thursday's practice, although he wasn't a full participant, The Columbus Dispatch reports. "I felt good today and it was nice to be back with the guys," the defenseman said afterwards. "It was good to skate around and do drills - passing, shooting, stuff like that. So we're heading in the right direction."

    He's missed seven of the Blue Jackets' past eight games due to back spasms, but Savard will likely need at least another couple of days to get back into game shape before he'll be an option on the team's blue line. The 26-year-old has two goals, 12 points and a plus-19 rating in 45 games on the season.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Skates alone Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/6/17) Savard (back) skated by himself before practice Monday, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.

    The rearguard still doesn't have a timetable for a return after recently being diagnosed with back spasms that will keep him out indefinitely, but the fact that he's mobile enough to hit the ice is an encouraging development. As it stands, Savard has missed six of the team's last seven games, the first three of which were for "undisclosed" reasons that could very well have been the same back issues he's currently experiencing.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Out indefinitely

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/3/17) Savard is out indefinitely due to back spasms, Tom Reed of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    Back spasms are tricky to overcome, and the Blue Jackets are planning on taking a cautious approach with Savard's recovery, so there's no telling when the 26-year-old blueliner might be ready to return game action at this juncture. The 2009 fourth-round pick has developed into a rock-solid shutdown defender for Columbus this season, skating to an impressive plus-19 rating over 45 games, and has also chipped in offensively with 12 points (two goals, 10 assists) over that span, making him a decent bench option in deeper leagues. A more definitive timetable for Savard's return to the lineup should be established once he's able to return to practice.

    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.
