The Avalanche have reportedly recalled forward David Van der Gulik from the Lake Erie Monsters. Van der Gulik is a smallish (5'10, 173) forward originally from Abbotsford, BC - the same town as smallish defenseman Kyle Cumiskey. Van der Gulik was originally drafted by the Calgary Flames in 2002 and was signed by the Avalanche this summer. And imagine this: he once played for Boston University, the unofficial farm team of the Avalanche.

Van der Gulik has 6 NHL games under his belt - all with the Flames - and he has 2 career assists. He wears number 7 for the Avalanche a number, as you can see above, is not new to him.

Fun fact: The Avalanche have two players in their system from the 2002 draft, but neither were drafted by the Avalanche. Both -  Van der Gulik (Calgary) and Greg Mauldin (Columbus) - were taken in the 7th round. The Avs' 2002 draft did generate two current NHLers, albeit for other teams. Those two would be Tom Gilbert and Johnny Boychuk.
