Avalanche Roster Battle Update

New, comments

 

Earlier today, the Avalanche reduced their roster to 48 (44 active and 4 injured players), giving me a chance to update the ongoing roster battles. None of the cuts were a surprise (in fact they had all been listed at the bottom of the respective depth chart in my preview). Several of the lower-ranked players will be playing in Dallas tomorrow night, giving them a final bit of experience and exposure before being reassigned.

I've tweaked the lists slightly, moving up Brad Malone and Tyson Barrie and italicizing the 4 injured players who have virtually no chance to make the active roster. In fact they aren't listed on the Avs' roster...but they haven't been formally reassigned yet (to my knowledge)
