#92: Brian Savage
Brian Savage was so good at the beginning of the hockey season, he earned the nickname Mr. October. Unfortunately, the season lasts until April, not including playoffs.
But Brian Savage played an important role for the Habs throughout the 90s. He made sure his team got out to a hot start.
Savage played eight season in a Montreal Canadiens uniform. Fans didn’t see too much in his last four full seasons, as he had a tendency to get injured often. He averaged 54 games a season in those four years.
But Savage was seen as a goal-scorer. Playing on the top line, he had four seasons of 20+ goals. His first season saw him net 12 goals and 19 points in 37 games. In 1999-2000, he had 17 goals in 38 games. He came back that year after cracking his vertebrae in a game against the Los Angeles Kings,
He was also the first Habs player since 1917 to have six points in a road game.
