He’s a beloved former Bruins center who was the fan banner captain for Game 5 of the first round series against Toronto this year.
But that hasn’t stopped Marc Savard from joining the team that crushed the Bruins’ dreams in June.
"He was a tremendous player and possesses an elite offensive mind. His addition to our staff will be a great benefit to our players and the organization,” Berube said in a statement.
Savard played 807 NHL games and had 706 points (207 goals, 499 assists), including 305 points (74 goals, 231 assists) in 304 games for the Bruins. He scored 292 points on the power play in his career.
He should help the Blues, who ranked 10th in the regular season on the power play, but were just 13-for-80 (16.3 percent) in the playoffs.
