From Dan Rosen’s NHL.com blog:
Well, Avery didn’t play Sunday in Bratislava and he’s not in the lineup today in Zug.
Why? Well, I won’t get the chance to ask the coach until after the game, but I can figure only two things: Either Tortorella has seen enough of Avery, who injured his lip against Frolunda on Friday, and wanted to get a real good look at Christensen without having to worry about watching another player as closely, or Avery is on his way out.
I could be way off, but that’s what I’m going with right now. I’ll find out more from Tortorella after the game.
