St. Louis Blues Assistant Coach Marc Savard is stepping away from coaching and will return to Ontario to be with his family.

Savard, 43, originally joined the Blues coaching staff on July 24, 2019.

"Marc has decided to step away and will not coach in the National Hockey League in 2020-21," said Blues General Manager Doug Armstrong. "I want to thank Marc for his work with our coaches and players during his time in St. Louis and wish him nothing but the best."

"I appreciate Marc's work and dedication this past season and wish him well in his future endeavors," added Blues Head Coach Craig Berube.

A native of Ottawa, Ontario, Savard enjoyed a 13-year NHL career as a player. Originally drafted by the New York Rangers in the fourth round of the 1995 NHL Draft, Savard amassed 706 points across 807 career regular-season games between the Rangers, Calgary Flames, Atlanta Thrashers and Boston Bruins.
