Found November 27, 2011 on HockeyBuzz:
In his first game after being called up, Avalanche defenseman Stefan Elliott gave the Avs a good reason to keep him on the roster. Elliott scored the game winning goal one shift after masterfully breaking up a 2-on-1 rush to give the Avs 3-2 lead, the first and only lead they would need. Entering the game 0-6 in games against its division and down 2-1 to the visiting Edmonton Oilers, the A...

Stefan Elliott scores first NHL goal as Colorado Avalanche defeat Edmonton Oilers, 5-2

He’s often described as an offensive defenceman: A craft very difficult to perfect, and to assure teams the validity of such talent. But Stefan Elliott had quite the year for the Saskatoon Blades last year with 31 goals and 50 assists. And, this year, in the AHL, he’s registered two goals and seven assists in 18 games. So, when Erik Johnson was placed on injured...

Rookie D Stefan Elliott likely to stick with Avalanche

A day after leading the Avalanche to a comeback victory over the Edmonton Oilers in his NHL debut, rookie defenseman Stefan Elliott participated in his first practice with the team since training camp. Colorado coach Joe Sacco didn’t exactly suggest Elliott is here to stay, but the coach certainly didn’t make it seem like Elliott would be sent back to the Lake Erie Monsters of...

Stefan Elliott recalled; Johnson goes on IR Some eagle-eyed Twitter followers of mine were quicker to this news than I was (welcome to the new world order), so hats off to them. But the Avs did just make it official: Stefan Elliott has been recalled from Lake Erie and is available to play for the Avs against Edmonton tonight. Erik Johnson (groin) is now on the injured reserve list. Avs have yet to make...

Richard Cloutier: I Take a Day Off, and Everything Goes to H-E-Double-Hockey Sticks

Thank you, Colorado Avalanche, for ruining my McChicken Sammich. Speaking of wings, it sounds like Taylor Hall has dislocated one. Yikes! Not good if you are an Oilers fan. Hall might not have the most points on the team, but he is the emotional leader. When Hall is flying, the rest of the team picks up the pace. Without Hall, someone is going to need to step up in a serious way...

Avalanche gets victory over Edmonton as Elliott stars in debut

Leave it to the 20-year-old defenseman making his NHL debut to serve as the difference-maker in the Colorado Avalanche's 5-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday.

Avs to go with same lineup against Stars The lineup that beat Edmonton Saturday night will be the same one for tonight’s matchup with the Stars. Though he won’t play tonight, Erik Johnson did skate today, for a second straight day. I don’t have a firm return date, but it probably won’t be too long. Dallas will be without top goaltender Kari Lehtonen, who suffered a knee injury and will be out...
