SAVAGE ADDED TO ALUMNI ROSTER
P-Bruins Add Veteran of 12 Seasons
Providence, RI - The Providence Bruins, in their 20th season in the American Hockey League, announced today that former P-Bruin Andre Savage will participate in the Alumni Game on November 13 at the Dunkin' Donuts Center.
Savage, who hails from Ottawa, Ontario, wore the ‘spoked-P' from 1998 to 2001 and again for the 2003-04 campaign. The center joined the P-Bruins after four seasons at Michigan Tech, three of which he lead the Huskies in scoring. During his rookie season in Providence in 1998-99, Savage recorded career-highs in assists (42) and points (69), good enough for second on the squad. The rookie tallied one assist in five playoff games en route to capturing the Calder Cup Championship. His offensive performance earned him his first NHL call-up, during which he recorded one goal in six games for Boston. Savage split his sophomore season between Boston and Providence, tallying 7-13=20 totals in 43 games for Boston and 32 points in 30 games for Providence.
The 5'10" 175-pound center went on to spend time in multiple AHL cities, including Manitoba, Philadelphia, Hershey and San Antonio before jumping the pond to play in Sweden and Germany. Savage hung up his skates in 2010 after scoring a team-high 44 points with Nuremberg (DEL). He tallied 10 goals and 14 assists for 24 points in 66 NHL games spanning a 12-year professional career.
The P-Bruins are back in action this weekend with three games. The Manchester Monarchs visit the Dunkin' Donuts Center on Friday in a 7:05 p.m. tilt for "Magnet Schedule Night." The club travels to Springfield on Saturday before returning to the Ocean State on Sunday for a 4:05 p.m. contest with Atlantic Division foe, the Portland Pirates.
