Former Bruins Star Marc Savard Takes on New Coaching Role

Marc Savard, a former star for the Boston Bruins, has joined the coaching staff of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Announced on Sunday, Savard will serve as an assistant coach under head coach Craig Berube, focusing on the team’s power play unit. Savard began his coaching career with Berube at the St. Louis Blues during the 2019-20 season.

Last season, Savard worked in a similar capacity with the Calgary Flames. Prior to that, he was the head coach of the Ontario Hockey League’s Windsor Spitfires, leading the team to an 88-35-8-5 record and an appearance in the OHL Finals in 2022.

During his NHL career, Savard played 807 games as a center, starting as a fourth-round pick by the Rangers in the 1995 NHL Draft. He became a star with the Bruins in 2006, earning back-to-back All-Star selections.

Savard’s playing career was tragically cut short by injuries. On March 7, 2010, he suffered a severe concussion from a controversial hit by Penguins player Matt Cooke. The aftermath of the hit left Savard in “total darkness” and “total silence” for two months. Due to the long-term effects, he never played another NHL game and officially retired in 2018.
