The Colorado Avalanche had a rough day in Ottawa earlier this week. On the same day, the Avalanche lost both goaltender Semyon Varlamov and goaltender Reto Berra to injuries. Varlamov suffered a groin injury during the morning skate and Berra suffered a head/neck injury after a collision. With both goalies on the shelf for an undetermined amount of time, the Avs are a team who...
The Colorado Avalanche are short a couple goalies with Semyon Varlamov and Reto Berra currently out with injuries, but they’ve turned down the services of Ilya Bryzgalov.
According to Sportsnet’s Damien Cox, Bryzgalov’s agent reached out to Avalanche brass and the team wasn’t interested in adding the veteran netminder.
