Brian Savage (born February 24, 1971 in Sudbury, Ontario) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey left winger.

Playing careerEdit

Savage attended Lo-Ellen Park Secondary School in Sudbury as a teenager. He was a proficient golfer and track athlete. He played one season with the Sudbury Cubs of the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League before jumping to college.

The nephew of former NHL player Larry Hillman, Savage was originally drafted in 1991 in the 8th round, 171st overall by the Montreal Canadiens. After completing his college hockey career at Miami University, he began his professional career with the Fredericton Canadiens of the AHL in 1993. His first taste of the NHL came at the tail end of the 1993–94 season, playing in 3 regular season and 3 playoff games.

Savage was the first Montreal Canadien since Joe Malone in 1917 to record six points in a road game when he had four goals and two assists against the Islanders on April 8, 1999. He also recorded the Canadiens' first hat trick in Bell Centre history on October 7, 1996. After several fast starts in the month of October and subsequently fading the rest of those seasons, Savage became known as hockey's Mr. October.

After parts of eight seasons with the Canadiens, Savage was traded to the Phoenix Coyotes on January 25, 2001 along with a 2002 3rd-round pick for Sergei Berezin. Playing only one full season with the Coyotes, he was traded to the St. Louis Blues for their playoff run. Due to the parameters of the trade, he was claimed off waivers by Phoenix in the off-season.

Following the lockout, Phoenix bought out his contract for $1.9 million. Savage signed a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Flyers prior to the 2005–06 NHL season. After one season in Philadelphia, Savage announced his retirement on September 21, 2006. He is currently the co-owner of the New Mexico Scorpions of the Central Hockey League.
