Centre Reggie Savage played briefly with the Washington Capitals and Quebec Nordiques in the early 90s. He was a talented scorer who could also battle for the puck in the corners and the slot.
The Caps took the Montreal native 15th overall on 1988 after scoring 68 goals for the QMJHL's Victoriavile Tigres. He was returned to junior and represented Canada at the 1989 World Junior Championships. In 1990-91 the young pivot dressed for one game in Washington then notched 74 goals in his first two minor pro seasons with the AHL's Baltimore Skipjacks.
The next year he averaged nearly a goal per game for the Skipjacks and was called for 16 NHL games. Still, the Caps had many skillful forwards and Savage was traded to Quebec. He played 17 games for his new team in 1993-94 but was soon relegated to the minors. Through the late 90s he racked up three 20-goal seasons while providing grit and leadership in the AHL and IHL.
