Bad news confirmed for David Savard today at practice

Published January 8, 2024 at 11:04

In the last few seconds, the Montreal Canadiens announced this.

«Defenseman David Savard will not participate in today's practice (therapy day).» - Montreal Canadiens

We had seen in the last game against the New York Rangers that he seemed bothered by something minor, and this confirms it.

The good news is that we have no reason to believe it's too serious.

Savard, 33 years old, has accumulated 8 points, including three goals, in 17 games this season with the Habs. He is signed for $3.5 million per season until 2025.

His name is increasingly coming up in trade rumors, as he could be involved in the same type of trade as Ben Chiarot two years ago. A situation to follow.

Do you believe Kent Hughes should do what he did with Chiarot, or do you think he should keep Savard because he is a great mentor for the young players?

Details to follow.
