The Avalanche have called up Calvin Pickard from the Lake Erie Monsters and stated that Semyon Varlamov is back to being day-to-day with a groin injury that doesn't seem to be fully healing. Sami Aittokallio was recalled by LEM from the Ft Wayne Komets yesterday, starting speculation as to what misfortune might have befallen one of our netminders.

Pickard is 2-3-3 since rejoining the Monsters a few weeks ago, with a .917 Sv% and 2.76 GAA on the year in the AHL. In 2 games for Colorado he stopped 63 of 70 shots and took a couple of losses. If Varly is out for a while, Reto Berra (2-1-1, .914, 2.70) should see most if not all of the time.

Stay tuned for updates...
