The opening nights roster is starting to take shape

NHL: Preseason-Colorado Avalanche at Minnesota Wild Marilyn Indahl-USA TODAY Sports

Before the Colorado Avalanche took the ice against the Stars last night, the team announced a few roster moves that will help shape the Eagles next season. As of noon today, forwards Andrew Agozzino and Scott Kosmachuk as well as defenseman Mason Geertson will be place on waivers with the intention of sending them to the AHL.

Kosmachuk had a goal in his lone preseason game Monday night against the Golden Knights.

Along with the three players that are on waiver, the team has also sent the following to the Eagles:

F Travis Barron, F A.J. Greer, D Josh Anderson, D Nicolas Meloche

Joining the Eagles as 20-year olds, Barron and Anderson are set to start their first professional season after playing last year in the CHL. As for Greer and Meloche, they are both expected to play a huge role in Loveland this season, with the expectation that either could find themselves getting called up to fill in at some point this season.

After a breakout second half of the season in San Antonio last year, Meloche is a kid with a ton of potential. We will likely see him play both PP and PK with the Eagles, as he is expected to log a lot of ice time as he prepares to make the jump to the NHL.

With none of Agozzino, Kosmachuk or Gerrtsen expected to be claimed, all seven players should be ready to go as the Eagles open up the AHL preseason tomorrow evening against the San Jose Barracuda.
