Ex-Bruin's Message to Matthews Takes the Internet by Storm

Published August 16, 2023 at 11:54 PM

Former Boston Bruins player, Marc Savard, has brought his light-hearted request into the digital realm, turning to X (formerly known as Twitter) to engage with Toronto Maple Leafs' superstar Auston Matthews. Savard's whimsical appeal? A brand-new pair of Marsblade skates, a product endorsed by Matthews himself, all in the spirit of good-natured banter.

In this virtual exchange, Savard playfully pledges a not-so-serious, yet utterly entertaining, NHL "comeback"—a role reserved exclusively for power-play scenarios. His tweet to Matthews encapsulates the jest:

"Hey @AM34, I used my son @savvy97_ rollerblades and went 10km. Send the old lad @Marsblade a size 9 wide and I might make a comeback. (PP only lol) @NHLFlames"

Savard's storied career spanned 807 NHL games across various teams, including the Flames, New York Rangers, Atlanta Thrashers, and, of course, the Boston Bruins. His remarkable track record boasts 207 goals intertwined with 499 assists.

Yet, Savard's legacy is not solely defined by statistics. An infamous incident involving a jarring head shot from Pittsburgh Penguins' forward Matt Cooke in 2010 left a lasting impact. The aftermath, a Grade 2 concussion, cast a shadow over Savard's later career stages, underscoring the resilience that echoes in his playful exchange with Matthews.
