Denis Savard’s Interview on Patrick Kane

“Watching Patrick Kane in action is one of the biggest thrills you can have watching hockey. There are plays he makes, even playing the game as long as I did and watching as many games as I have, that make me say, “How did he do that one?” He’s just fun to watch, simple as that. I absolutely enjoy going to games and watching him play; 20,000 fans at the United Center would agree with me.

People often say that Patrick and I play the game the same way, and that’s true, but in some ways I think playing today is a little harder. It’s not that in our day we weren’t good players, but today the guys on the ice are so much faster, stronger and bigger. Patrick is the same size I was in my playing days, but he still makes it look easy at times, even with a stiffer level of competition.”

Savard to Bring Charity Event To Lake Forest Sportscars

When Denis Savard arrived in Chicago at age 19 in 1980, the Chicago Blackhawks first-round draft choice had never spoken a word of English.

“My first word was copasetic – it means everything’s fine,” said Savard, who hailed from Verdun in the French-speaking province of Quebec.

By the time his Hall of Fame career wrapped up in 1997, his creative play on the ice had sparked a new English phrase — the “Savard Spin-O-Rama,” where the center spun with the puck to avoid defenders, a daring move that often concluded with a back-handed goal.

A few years ago, the well-spoken Blackhawks ambassador created yet another new term: The Denis Savard Foundation. And on Friday, Oct. 21, his non-profit will put on the Monte Carlo Charity Gala at Lake Forest Sportscars in Lake Bluff.

“I was given so much here in Chicago,” said Savard, whose foundation is designed to help both children and veterans. “I’m blessed to have a daughter who’s 23 and healthy. But my nephew’s son is 10 and doesn’t talk. I’ve gotten to meet some of the guys came back from Iraq and Afghanistan. For me to give back is a no-brainer.”

The Monte Carlo Charity Gala — which features honorary co-chairs Melissa and Steve Esposito of Lake Forest, along with local chairpersons Tina Ballis, Ada Boras, Lynne Kennedy, Leslie Gantos and Lori Rozdolsky — anticipates between 250-300 people patronizing its roulette wheel, blackjack tables and other games of chance. The Buckinghams will play, Lovell’s, The Deerpath Inn, Southgate Cafe and Philly G’s will provide food, and former pro athletes such as Chicago Bears Hall of Famer Dan Hampton and one-time Blackhawk right winger Marty LaPointe will chat with attendees.
