Avs trim the roster again, send 9 guys down

New, comments

With only two more games left, both of which are exhibition-style, the Avs cut the roster to the key people.

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Avalanche have reassigned 9 players to their respective clubs:

Pos Player Team League
D Bruno Gervais Lake Erie (AHL)
C Samuel Henley Lake Erie (AHL)
C Joey Hishon Lake Erie (AHL)
D Daniel Maggio Lake Erie (AHL)
D Maxim Noreau Lake Erie (AHL)
G Calvin Pickard Lake Erie (AHL)
LW Michael Schumacher Lake Erie (AHL)
D Duncan Siemens Lake Erie (AHL)
LW Alexis Pepin Gatineau (QMJHL)

I'm surprised and disappointed that Duncan Siemens didn't get more playing time, but I'm not going to lament it further. I really wish I knew what the hell Roy's thought process is on this.

Notable players still on the roster include Andrew Agozzino, Jesse Winchester, both of whom have been playing brilliantly all camp long. Borna Rendulic is also still with the club; he's got great hands and vision, but really needs to adjust to the North American game.

Ben Street's appearance on the refined roster is baffling. He's been less than stellar, to put it nicely. Another player who's been questionable—sometimes good, sometimes crappy—but has made the cut is Dennis Everberg.

Here's the full list of remaining players:
