The season is not quite over for a few Avs. After today's game, Jonas Holos, Shawn Belle, Ryan Stoa and Mark Olver were all sent down to Lake Erie. Well, at least four of our guys get to taste the postseason.
Meanwhile, Matt Duchene will be playing for Team Canada in the upcoming IIHF World Championship in Slovakia (starting April 29th). Peter Budaj is expected to play for Slovakia, but I don't believe that has been formally announced yet. If the Monsters fail to get past their first-round match up with Manitoba, Holos could be joining Team Norway. That may be it for the Avs in international play this year. Paul Stastny, T.J. Galiardi and Erik Johnson have all previously played for Team USA in the World Championships...but all three are currently injured.
