Colorado Avalanche 2008-09 Roster

New, comments

Well, that was quick.  The Avs cut Brian Willsie, Per Ledin and TJ Hensick, sending them all to the AHL Lake Erie Monsters for further minor league basting.  Looks like the Tyler Arnason Era will continue in Denver for the time being.

Courtesy of the Denver Post, here is the current Avalanche Roster, at least until the injuries start piling up:
