Andre Ronald Savage (born May 27, 1975) is a Canadian professional ice hockey centre who last played for the Thomas Sabo Ice Tigers of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL).

Playing career[edit]

Savage went undrafted in the NHL Entry Draft and signed with the Boston Bruins as a free agent in 1998 and spent three seasons splitting his time between Boston and the Providence Bruins. He signed with the Vancouver Canucks in 2001, but spent the entire season with the Manitoba Moose and never played for the Canucks. He then signed with the Philadelphia Flyers in 2002 where he played 16 games. It would be Savage's last season in the NHL as he spent the rest of his Flyers spell with the Philadelphia Phantoms and was loaned back to the Providence Bruins in 2003. In 2004 he signed with the Colorado Avalanche, but he never played for the Avalanche thanks to the NHL lockout. Instead he played for the Hershey Bears before being loaned out to the San Antonio Rampage.

In 2005, Savage moved to Sweden, signing with the Malmö Redhawks in the HockeyAllsvenskan for one season before moving to the Sinupret Ice Tigers in the Germany's Deutsche Eishockey Liga.
