Second year pro goalie Spencer Martin will get his first NHL action tomorrow night against the Vancouver Canucks. And by action I mean holding the door while wearing a ballcap on the bench, but it’s a start. Calvin Pickard had 3 callups before actually getting to play in a game. Semyon Varlamov has a case of UBI making this move necessary. Rampage opening day starter Jeremy Smith is out with LBI so all 2 of the Avalanche contracted healthy goalies will be in Denver.
Martin is tied for the AHL lead in wins with 8 and has a 2.21 GAA & .924 Sv% so far this year. If the unthinkable happens and he gets put in we’ll be fine.
