The Avalanche have recalled Tyson Barrie from Lake Erie (AHL).
Barrie was recalled because Ryan Wilson (back) was placed on injured reserve, retroactive to November 6. Barrie had three points (all assists) in five games with Lake Erie after being sent down earlier this month.
The Avalanche have reassigned Tyson Barrie to the AHL.
Patrick Roy was not impressed with Barrie's start to the season and had him as a healthy scratch for eight of the Avs' last nine games. He will head to Lake Erie (AHL) where he will likely see a ton of ice-time which will help him develop a lot better than sitting on a nightly basis.
The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that the team has reassigned four players, reducing its 2011 preseason roster to 27. The following four players have been reassigned to the American Hockey League training camp: D, Tyson Barrie, Lake Erie (AHL); LW, Patrick Bordeleau, Lake Erie (AHL); G, Trevor Cann, Lake Erie (AHL); C, Brad Malone, Lake Erie (AHL)
