Savard appeared in one game for the Falcons and had two penalty minutes after being sent down by the Blue Jackets on Tuesday.

Ruth had been sidelined with a sprained right knee sustained during a preseason game.

Savard has recorded two assists and six penalty minutes in seven games with the Blue Jackets this season. He made his NHL debut against Nashville on Oct. 7 and recorded his first NHL point at Dallas on Oct. 15.
