Player Profile: Matthew Savoie

Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports

Matthew Savoie, born on January 1st, 2004, hails from St. Albert, Alberta, a suburb of Edmonton. His hockey journey began in Alberta during his junior years, and he gained experience in the WHL playing for the Winnipeg Ice, Wenatchee Wild, and Moose Jaw Warriors. Savoie also showcased his talents in the USHL with the Dubuque Fighting Saints and represented Team Canada in the World Juniors earlier this year.

Drafted 9th Overall by Buffalo Sabres in 2022 NHL Draft

Notably, Savoie was selected as the 9th overall pick by the Buffalo Sabres in the 2022 NHL Draft. He made his NHL debut against the Minnesota Wild on November 10, 2023. With an impressive 263 points in 183 career WHL games and his contributions to the Moose Jaw Warriors in this year’s Memorial Cup tournament, Savoie has proven to be a valuable asset. Additionally, his time with the Rochester Americans (AHL) showed promise, as he scored 5 points in 6 games.

Matthew Savoie Traded To the Edmonton Oilers

Last Friday, the Edmonton Oilers made a significant trade, sending forward Ryan McLeod to the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for promising prospect forward Matthew Savoie. The Oilers also included their own prospect, Tyler Tulio, in the deal. Savoie, considered Buffalo’s top prospect, is seen as a valuable addition to the Oilers. With his skills and potential, he could make a strong impact for the team as a depth forward in the upcoming NHL season.
