From the vault: Marc Savard and the Oshawa Generals

Messing around on Youtube this evening since there was no hockey on after UMass Lowell beat Northeastern in overtime, one of my Sabres fan friends (who is totally a secret Bruins fan) was asking me to link her some Marc Savard interviews. I found his NHL player profile, and then stumbled upon this:

BABY MARC SAVARD. But look past his amazing backstreet boy-esque hair, his 13-years-younger looks (19-year-old Savvy!) and you’ll find something pretty cool.

Nice little highlight video that includes a goalie fight, Savvy burying a penalty shot, and then – Savvy breaks the Oshawa Generals ALL-TIME scoring record. He finishes his time with the Generals with 413 points in 238 games, currently 10th in the OHL All-Time Points leaders, two slots behind John Tavares (433 points)

. In 94-95 he was the WHL scoring leader, with 137 points; he did it again in the 96-97 season when he racked up 43 goals and 87 assists – a set-up man from the very beginning. His scoring record still stands, 12 years later. Somehow he managed to not get drafted until the 4th round of the 1995 entry draft; to be fair, at that point, he’d had one standout year. He was drafted 91st overall by the Rangers, and wore #33 for that team.

This is the guy we’ve signed to a contract for hopefully the rest of his NHL career, and here’s hoping he doesn’t disappoint! At least his hair is more acceptable now…

BSB hair was totally cool in 1995!

  1. As bad as his haircut was back then, at least he HAD hair. It’s beyond hideous now. Chopping all of one’s hair off is NOT attractive. Not in the least. Ugh ugh ugh ugh.

    • He looks like Jonathan Taylor Thomas in that mugshot! Ahaha. At least his hair has suited his age, throughout the years…..

      I kinda like fuzzy-head savvy. But to each his (her…) own!

  2. It’s not a secret if you TELL people ;)
