Joined Team: March 4, 2009 (acquired with Ryan Wilson and a 2nd round pick from Calgary for Jordan Leopold)

MHH Nicknames: Who?

Linemates: Tjarnqvist (2), Liles (2), Vernace (1)

ATOI: 10:32

Best Month: March (5GP, 0 points)

Career Highs: Nycholat's 19 games (including his time with Vancouver) and +/- rating of +1 both matched career highs.

Report: Nycholat was acquired in the Leopold deal. At the time, Nycholat was joining his 3rd team in 4 days, having just been obtained by the Flames on waivers from Vancouver. Really, he was just brought in to provide some depth and he did just that...for 5 games before going down with an arm injury.

In those 5 games, Nycholat seemed solid if unspectacular. His scouting report (click his jersey on the right) says he possesses some offensive acumen, but that's not a skill one is allowed to showcase in the Colorado Avalanche "system".

Fun Fact: Nycholat, a Calgary, Alberta native, has been with every NW division franchise except Edmonton.

The Lawrence Nycholat Drinking Game: Drink every time someone recognizes Lawrence Nycholat. Drunk potential: Very low.

2008 Salary (and Cap Number): $600k ($550k)

2009-2010 Status: Nycholat is an unrestricted free agent.

Outlook for 2009: Nycholat seems like a good enough guy to have around as a reserve defensemen. If he was to return, it would be as a depth guy who would shuttle between Denver and Cleveland. I think the Avs have other options here, though (Michael Vernace, for example) and I imagine Nycholat will not be back.

 

Next Up: John-Michael Liles
