Samuel Savoie is a powerful skater with a thick frame who is a dynamic attacker that plays a physical game and never stops working. He has decent puck skills at top speed and a relentless style that is most effective when he’s finishing checks, winning battles and taking pucks to the net or finishing with his heavy shot. He gives defensemen trouble below the goal line, wins races and knocks defenders off pucks and recovers possession. His agility and shiftiness also allow him to be a good puck protector. He has ability to drive plays and create offense on a zone entry or an offensive rush, thanks to his speed and powerful frame. His skating is another strong element of his game. He can quickly get up to speed in open ice. He accelerates past defenders and he’s shifty and agile enough to escape pressure, protect the puck and prolong control. He is strong at five-on-five, highly involved on the power play, and brings energy and effort to the penalty kill. Defensively, he has an active stick and can take away space and clog up passing lanes. He puts in the extra effort on the backcheck and takes away the middle of the ice. He seems ready and willing to throw his body in front of shots, though it can pull him out of position. Although it can be expected that he will continue to work hard and develop, there isn’t really a lot of risk in his game. He controls what he can control and doesn’t worry about the rest, staying well within his skillset regardless of circumstance. He can play his game, of which energy, effort and drive are the hallmarks, no matter who his linemates are or where he sits in the lineup. Right now, he projects to the NHL level as a tenacious middle-six checker who is capable of shifting momentum and adding some scoring.
