As featured in Patrit19's fanshot, Bob MacKenzie has tweeted that the Avalanche have waived Kyle Cumiskey. The move is a little odd in the timing, with the season starting tomorrow and the final roster already set (Cumiskey has been on the IR). Apparently, he is healthy now (as some practice-watchers have speculated) and will head to Lake Erie if he clears waivers.
We thought this move would be coming at some point...just not one day before the season opener.
UDPATE: The move has been confirmed by the Denver Post.
Another UPDATE: Post practice interviews that include Sacco talking about Cumiskey. He did a great job of dodging any hard-hitting question...
