Fantasy Summary

Saville is the complete package as a goalie… if it weren’t for his size. He competes hard, is very technically sound, and has won at nearly every level he’s played.

January 2024 – Since starting the season late due to injury, Saville has sparkled so far at the AHL level. Following a 10 game stint last season which saw him post a .902 save percentage for the Silver Knights, he’s posted a .913 through 8 games this year to complement a few injury related callups to Vegas. As it stands Saville is still yet to see the ice in an NHL game, but he could very well draw in for the parent club before the end of this season. Taylor Davis

July 2023 – The young netminder entered the pro ranks at the bottom of the goaltending totem pole, beginning down with the Savannah Ghost Pirates of the ECHL. Saville acclimated well and took it in stride, carrying a .920 save percentage through 33 games on a weak Savannah team, which missed the playoffs. Given the league’s reputation for being difficult on even experienced professional players, it is encouraging that Saville handled the jump with grace, which he could be expected to do again in jumping up to the AHL next season. He remains a relaxed goaltender with strong economy of motion who likes to play the puck, which can bite him, but will be an asset if he can improve on it throughout his time in the minors. As noted, he will start with AHL Henderson next season, likely splitting the net with Jiri Petera. Taylor Davis


October 2022 – Size be damned as the “diminutive,” 6-1 Saville met the challenge of his first professional stint last season with a 2.05 goals-against average and a .929 save percentage in 8 games with the Silver Knights. Coming off of a consistent, if not eye-popping, college career with the University of Nebraska-Omaha, Saville enters a somewhat crowded crease in Henderson. The possibility exists that the 2019 fifth-rounder ends up spending the majority of his time this season in the ECHL with the brand new Savannah Ghost Pirates, where he would likely find more playing time, but don’t be shocked to see him jump a few names on the depth chart with a strong showing over the first few months of the season.

November 2021 – The University of Nebraska-Omaha netminder earned NCHC Goalie of the Week in early November, stopping all 23 Long Island University shots for his second shutout of the campaign. That was the third time this season he earned the title, also having been named Goalie of the Week twice in October. In ten contests this season the Anchorage, AK-born Saville has seven wins, a 2.06 goals-against average, and a .909 save percentage, each ranking third-best in the conference. Kevin Wickersham 


July 2019 – Saville plays a very mature game for a draft eligible goalie. He shows great composure, which allows him to stay in control even when quickly moving laterally across the net. Although he doesn’t possess great size, he uses his angles extremely well which enables him to fill more net than you would expect. My guess is that it was his size that scared teams away from a selection prior to the fifth round. However, Saville has done nothing but excel and win at nearly every level he’s played. He had a massive tournament and was a huge reason why Team USA took home gold at the World Jr. “A” Challenge, and was also named the USHL’s Goalie of the Year. If he was only two inches taller, he may have found his way inside the first round. Mason Black
