  • Blue Jackets' David Savard: Ice time on decline

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/5/18) Savard played a season-low 15:24 in Sunday's overtime loss to the Ducks, recording only one hit.

    He was consistently seeing more than 20 minutes of ice time a night earlier in the season, but since Seth Jones rejoined the lineup, Savard's spot on the Jackets' third pairing hasn't afforded him as many shifts. As per usual, the 28-year-old offers more fantasy value in formats that count secondary categories than he does in a straight points league -- through 14 games, Savard has only one goal and three points, but he's supplemented that with 17 shots, a plus-3 rating, eight PIM, 12 hits and 24 blocked shots.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Snags first point of season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/6/18) Savard generated a primary assist in a 3-1 home loss to the Hurricanes on Friday.

    Savard has recorded at least 15 points in five straight seasons, but he was on the lower end of that spectrum with a 16-spot (four goals, 12 assists) last year. Of course, there's plenty more that Savard does on the ice that may go unnoticed to the casual fantasy owner, such as the fact that he's achieved triple-digit totals in hits and blocked shots for four years running. Really, the only turnoff is that Savard barely gets unleashed on the power play.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Fifth straight 15-point season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/13/18) Savard collected 16 points (four goals, 12 assists) in 81 games during 2017-18, while averaging 19:23 of playing time.

    The entire season Savard just missed one game and skated in all six playoff contests, just barely missing his second iron man season of his career. Savard frequently threw the puck on net in 2017-18 posting 145 shots on goal, but was victimized by a poor 2.8 shooting percentage, the lowest mark of his career. For the second straight season the 27-year-old was absent on the power play which will continue to limit his point production in upcoming seasons, but his 144 hits and 143 blocked shots were the most of any Columbus defensemen. Savard will return to Columbus for 2018-19, and should reprise a role on one of the top two pairings.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Ready to roll Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/27/18) Savard (illness) is in the lineup for Tuesday's game against Edmonton.

    Savard wasn't able to practice Monday due to an illness, but he was likely never in serious danger of missing Columbus' matchup with the Oilers. The 27-year-old blueliner, who's totaled four goals and 15 points in 75 contests this campaign, will skate with Ian Cole on the Blue Jackets' bottom pairing against Edmonton.

    Blue Jackets' David Savard: Absent from practice

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/26/18) Savard missed Monday's practice session due to illness, Brian Hedger of the Blue Jackets' official site reports.

    Savard's status for Tuesday's clash with Edmonton is up in the air, but Jack Johnson would figure to return to the lineup if the 26-year-old Savard is unable to give it a go. The defenseman is stuck in a 23-game goal drought and has managed a meager five helpers over that stretch. With 15 points on the season, it may be tough for the Quebec native to reach the 20-point threshold, even if he doesn't miss any time.
