Calgary Flames part ways with assistant coach Marc Savard

Calgary Flames assistant coach Marc Savard and the NHL club have agreed to part company.

The Flames announced Savard’s departure Wednesday.

When Ryan Huska was promoted from assistant to Calgary’s head coach last year, Savard joined the club’s staff after two seasons coaching the Ontario Hockey League’s Windsor Spitfires.

Savard was also an assistant coach of the St. Louis Blues in 2019-20.

He totalled 207 goals and 499 assists in the NHL.

“We would like to thank Marc for his commitment last season and also for his professionalism during this process to arrive at today’s decision,” Flames general manager Craig Conroy said in a statement.
