Fresh off the news that the Boston Bruins had hired 2011 Stanley Cup champion Chris Kelly to their own front office earlier this week, yet another member of that historic championship team has joined the coaching ranks.
The St. Louis Blues have announced that Marc Savard has joined their staff as an assistant coach under head coach Craig Berube.
Check it out:
Fantastic news! And honestly, it couldn’t have happened to a better guy. The way that Savard’s career ended was obviously disappointing, particularly because he wasn’t able to play during that Cup run in 2011 due to concussions.
Since officially retiring in 2017, Savard has been working as an analyst for Rogers Sportsnet in his native Canada.
The 41 year old managed 207 goals and 706 points in 807 career NHL games split between the Bruins, Atlanta Thrashers, Calgary Flames and New York Rangers.
Read below for some more comments from Savard and Berube on the hiring.
