ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Stanley Cup champion St. Louis Blues hired Marc Savard as an assistant coach Wednesday.
The 42-year-old Savard spent 13 years playing in the NHL, splitting time among the Rangers, Flames, Thrashers and Bruins. The two-time All-Star was part of Boston’s 2011 Stanley Cup title team.
Since his retirement, Savard has been part of broadcasts for Hockey Night in Canada and on Maple Leafs pre- and postgame shows. He also has been coaching a junior hockey club in Ontario.
Blues coach Craig Berube called Savard a “tremendous player” and an “elite offensive mind.”
