  • 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.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Undergoes foot procedure

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/11/16) Savard, who had a piece of a bone "floating" in his foot per GM Jarmo Kekalainen, underwent surgery Monday to address the issue, the Columbus Dispatch reports.

    The report adds that Savard played through both a chipped bone in his foot and a strained oblique muscle for most of the season, while recording four goals and 25 points in 65 games in the process. On the plus side, with the blueliner looking at a 6-8 week recovery period, he should be 100 percent by the time training camp rolls around. He's signed with Columbus through 2020-21, at an annual cap hit of $4,250,000.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Registers multi-assist outing

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/2/16) Savard picked up a pair of helpers, adding a plus-3 rating and two hits in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Hurricanes.

    Savard went pointless for nine straight in March, but the 25-year-old has managed to reach the scoresheet in two consecutive games after his second multi-assist outing of the year. That gives the blueliner 20 helpers to date, which is still five short of his career high (injuries plagued his campaign).

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Finds twine twice Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/5/16) Savard scored twice in Friday's 6-3 doubling up of the visiting Oilers. He also tied a season high with five shots on goal.

    Savard tripled his goal output on the season from one to three in this one, snapping a pair of even-strength goals past rookie netminder Laurent Brossoit. The blueliner also has 17 assists in 48 games this year, giving him an even 20 points thus far in his fifth NHL campaign.

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

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/14/16) 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.

    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.
