Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Ryan Savoia
Centre Ryan Savoia played three games for the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1998-99. He was a hard-nosed competitor who could also score. Most of his career was spent in the minors or battling injuries.

Born in Thorald, Ontario, Savoia played junior B in his hometown then scored 35 goals in 38 games for Brock University in 1994-85. He then signed as a free agent with Pittsburgh and recorded 35 goals for Johnstown of the ECHL in 1996-97. After struggling to stay healthy in 1997-98 Savoia finally made it to the NHL for three contests the next year. Eventually he was returned to the AHL where he was a useful worker on the Syracuse Crunch.
