      Career Highlights: uh...

      Report: After a season in Russia doing the Lokomotiv (uh, sorry), Tjarnqvist returned to the NHL, signing with the Avalanche to serve as their 7th defensemen. Tjarmin seemed to accept that role admirably - he was a healthy scratch (plus one injury scratch) for the first quarter of the season, making his debut on November 24th. You never heard him grouse about sitting and he always seemed prepared when it came time to play.

      Basically, he was a solid option. Although he had a couple of big miscues early in the season, once he got his sea legs he became quite steady. He played a smart, simple game in his own end - nothing spectacular, just steady, consistent play. Offensively, there was nothing, of course, but that goes without saying on this team (actually, it gets stated a lot on this team, but that's another show).

      Fun Fact: Tjarnqvist played with Peter Forsberg on Sweden's 2006 gold medal Olympic team.

      The Daniel Tjarnqvist Drinking Game: Drink when Tjarnqvist is a healthy scratch  Drunk potential: Significant

      What I Said Last Year: "Jeff Finger and Kurt Sauer didn't want to come back to Colorado to be the 7th defensemen. The Avs have Kyle Cumiskey, but not much else ready for NHL action so it seemed clear that Francois Giguere would be adding some low-salary depth to the Avs."

      2008 Salary (and Cap Number): $750k ($750k)

      2009-2010 Status: UFA

      Outlook for 2009: Tjarnqvist was a nice addition to the club last year and played well in the role he was brought in to play, something you can't really say about the other two signings last summer. I don't think Tjarmin will be back, though, as it looks like Michael Vernace may be capable of filling that role next year. Tjarnqvist should be used to changing teams by now, as he hasn't spent back-to-back years with the same club since before the lockout. But, hey, at least he garnered a shiny new nickname during his stay in Denver!
