The Avalanche have just announced that they have reduced their roster to 26, with three players assigned to the Injury Reserve. That brings them to the required 23 player active roster required by the league.

They reassigned Stefan Elliott to Lake Erie (AHL). They place Kyle Cumiskey (groin), Mark Olver (head) and Brandon Yip (arm) on the IR.
