Last night’s game between the Colorado Avalanche and St. Louis Blues left fans around the league wondering about an offside review call, now it looks like there is more bad news for the Avalanche beyond the league blowing a call that would have allowed them to tie the game.
This afternoon, coach Bednar confirmed that the team will be without both J.T. Compher and Tyson Jost will be out of the lineup for the foreseeable future.
Compher is out indefinitely with a broken thumb. He is going to be re-evaluated by a hand specialist before we know his true timeline.
Jost will miss an estimated 2-3 weeks with a lower-body injury. It’s likely he re-aggravated the injury that kept him out from a couple games last week.
The coach also mentioned that Patrik Nemeth is hurt but thanks to four full days off, he is likely going to be an option for them when the team plays again on Tuesday.
As far as call-ups go, Bednar mentioned that we will likely see a couple players recalled from San Antonio on Sunday after the team gets a chance to evaluate their options. The Rampage play three games in three nights, and with the Avs off, all eyes will be on the AHL team as the youngsters audition for a chance to be an injury replacement.
