It’s good to have EJ back.

Following the Carolina Hurricanes 3-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche, the Avs sent Calle Rosen back to the AHL Colorado Eagles.

With Erik Johnson back in the lineup, Rosen is the odd-man out. In eight games with the Avalanche, Rosen posted two assists, playing top-four minutes and keeping a positive shot share (51.2%). He goes back to the Eagles as their top defenseman, posting eight points in his first 13 games with the club.

EJ played his first game since November 23rd when Alexander Kerfoot hit him (and got suspended for it). He played 20 minutes, including power play and penalty kill time.

Here is the recap from the game, written by Jackie. It was close for two periods, but the Canes came back after the Avalanche took a late lead to win the game 3-1.

Erik Johnson returned from his 11 game injury absence in this contest. He was paired mostly with Anton Lindholm and played just over 20 minutes including penalty kill and second unit power play time. He looked like he was moving well and included a couple “condor” special rushes in what made a positive return for Johnson.

Thursday night was Star Wars Night, check out this montage from the game with Baby Yoda and all.

ESPN made a list of the Top-100 players from the last decade. There are some good names and some bad names, how many current and former Avs do you think deserve a spot?

“Landeskog had 425 points in his first 594 games as one of the better left wings of the decade, made even more impressive by having played on some weak Colorado teams.”

And CapFriendly has a new trade tool available. I’m sure we’ll all get plenty of use out of it.
