Marc Savard was acquired by the Flames via a draft day trade in June 1999. The Flames moved the 9th pick overall (Jamie Lundmark) and Czech winger Jan Hlavac to the New York Rangers for the 11th pick (Oleg Saprykin), and Savard. Savard had an out-standing junior career in Oshawa, amassing over 130 points twice.

Savard plays with a chip on his shoulder, surprising the opposition due to his small stature. ... Is quick on his skates both straight away and darting in and out of traffic ... His first choice is to pass, Savard uses his teammates effectively.... Does possess an effective, accurate shot. Can be quite inconsistent at times, tends to take bad penalties.
Savard has the offensive game to be a number one center, but a stature more suited to a second line pivot's role. His upside is to the level of an Adam Oates, or Doug Gilmour, with a downside of a point per game player. His passing skills, and instincts make him an ideal side board powerplay quarterback.

2001 Highlights: Marc Savard currently holds down the number one center role with the Calgary Flames, lining up with the team's top offensive threat, Jarome Iginla. Missed the first three games of the 2000-2001 season due to a contract hold out. Was on pace for a 30 goal, 80 point season before going stone cold in the final month of the season.

2000 Highlights: 2000 Highlights: Had an effective first season in Calgary, generating a career high in goals and points. His 2000 season got off on the wrong foot as he reported to camp in less than ideal shape, landing in coach Sutter's dog house.
Background: Savard was taken 91st overall (4th round) in the 1995 Entry Draft ... Won the 1994-95 Eddie Powers Memorial Trophy as the OHL's leading scorer. 2nd team OHL all-star in 1994-95.
