Savvy is getting an ‘A’ on his chest with the Hounds!

The Soo Greyhounds have announced today that they have named former Soo Thunderbirds forward Tyler Savard as one of their assistant captains for the 2022-2023 season.

Savard, who is currently in his second season with the Greyhounds, has so far put up 1 goal and 1 assist in 2 games played with them this season.

This past September, the Peterborough, Ontario native also attended Philadelphia Flyers Training Camp as a free agent.

As a member of the Soo Thunderbirds back in 2019-2020, Savvy recorded 19 goals and 50 points in 43 regular season games.

Savard becomes the first Soo Thunderbird graduate to wear a letter on his chest with the Soo Greyhounds since Boris Katchouk, who wore an ‘A’ with them back in the 2017-2018 season.


Savvy and the Hounds will be in action tonight at 7:00 p.m., when they take on the Flint Firebirds at the GFL Memorial Gardens in downtown Sault Ste. Marie.
