The Avalanche have reduced their roster to 37 this afternoon. Among the casualties are:
- defenseman Gabriel Beaupre
- defenseman Markus Lauridsen
- defenseman Duncan Siemens
- defenseman Karl Stollery
- the imaginary awesomeness of center Michael Sgarbossa
All five will report to AHL Lake Erie for training camp.
Still on the bubble
Forwards: Andrew Agozzino, Paul Carey, Guillaume Desbiens, Mitchell Heard, Bryan Lerg, Brad Malone, Garrett Meurs, Mark Olver, Colin Smith, J.T. Wyman; though few if any of those guys will make the final cut.
Defense: Andre Benoit, Chris Bigras, Stefan Elliott, Nate Guenin, Nick Holden, Matt Hunwick (who I only included because of that whole waivers thing)
Goalies: Calvin Pickard and Sami Aittokallio are both going to be cut at some point. No real bubble here.
