Watching Hensuck Arnason around for around 7 minutes against the wheel the other night, and seeing that they had called up Brian "We'llsee why he is a career minor leaguer at best" Willsie, I couldn't help but wonder, "Why not Durno?" The guy is big, looks like he can skate and has shown some skill, and looked pretty good during his brief stints with the Avs last season. Also, he's leading the Monsters in scoring with 6 goals and 3 assists in 8 games.
So I go to the LEM website and look at the team stats, and Durno has an "X" next to his name. Like other guys the Avs have recalled, meaning he's not on the LEM active roster. Is he hurt or has he been recalled? I'd love to see him given a shot over Hensuck and Willsie.
Update: Dater confirms in his blog that Durno has been called up. I guess the LEM website beat him to the scoop, however.
