David Savard worked hard on his conditioning and it helped him enjoy a breakout season in 2014-15.
His average ice time per game went up 5:37 from 17:19 in 2013-14 thanks to his improved conditioning and a spot on the top defense pairing with Jack Johnson. Savard led the Blue Jackets in total shifts (2,165) and even-strength ice time (1,486:10). He is expected to be a fixture on the power play in 2015-16 and could surpass the 40-point mark. That would work out perfectly for Savard, as he will be a restricted free agent next summer. He has come a long way for a player who almost didn't get a qualifying offer after the 2013 season.
