Blue Jackets sign David Savard to extension

  Sometimes, a career year is all you need to cash in on a new contract. Such is the case for Columbus Blue Jackets’ defenseman David Savard. Savard notched a career-high 36 points in 2014-15, averaging 22:56 per night. That’s quite a jump from the 15 points he tallied the year prior. That’s also not mentioning the fact that his 11 goals tied for the second-most in a single...

Savard becoming bedrock on the Blue Line

Two years ago, defenseman David Savard came upon a fork in the road. He played just four games for Columbus in 2013 and realized that if he wanted to stay in the NHL, he had to get lighter and quicker.
