With the NHL season kicking off tomorrow today was the deadline for clubs to finalize their regular season rosters. The Avs made their final cuts today reassigning one player to Lake Erie and placing three in the injured reserve.
The roster was previously cut to 27 players on October 2nd. I tweeted about it, but haven’t been able to find the time to write anything up. (more…)
With the regular season fast approaching the Avalanche are slimming down its roster and the battle for spots is heating up. Three more players were reassigned today bringing the roster down to 31 athletes.
All three players were reassigned to the Avs AHL affiliate the Lake Erie Monsters. Again, there’s no real surprise here:
D Cameron Gaunce (AHL)
D Jonas Holos (AHL)
C Ryan Stoa (AHL)
The next preseason game is this Wednesday at home against the Los Angeles Kings. Puck drop is scheduled for 9:00pm EST (7:00pm MT).
Following last nights preseason game against the St. Louis Blues it was obvious that more cuts had been made. Soon after the game Greg Mauldin tweeted “See ya Colorado… Hello Cleveland”. I saw this last night, but wanted to wait for an official release from the team before writing about it. (more…)
Colorado was back on the ice tonight, but this time they played host to the St. Louis Blues. Despite having many of their star players in the lineup, including Matt Duchene, Paul Stastny, and starting goaltender Semyon Varlamov, the Blues were still too much to handle. Since it wasn’t a televised game I’m not going to write a full recap, but here is what went down. (more…)
As expected the Colorado Avalanche made their first round of cuts yesterday afternoon prior to their opening preseason game tonight at the Dallas Stars.
The Avalanche only cut six players reducing their preseason roster from 44, which includes four players who are currently injured. There are no surprises here as none were expected to stick around too long following the conclusion of the Burgundy and White game. (more…)
