Columbus Blue Jackets send D David Savard back to Springfield of AHL

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have assigned defenceman David Savard to Springfield of the American Hockey League.

Savard had been brought in on an emergency recall but wasn't needed for the Blue Jackets' game at Anaheim on Wednesday night.

The 22-year-old Savard has totalled 44 minutes, 35 seconds of ice time in three games with Columbus this season. He has five goals and 26 assists in 60 games with Springfield.

The St. Hyacinthe, Quebec, native was originally selected by the Blue Jackets in the fourth round of the 2009 NHL draft. He has two goals and eight assists in 34 career NHL games.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
