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.

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
