Aaron Musick: Let Elliott and Barrie play

Since the Colorado Avalanche are all but eliminated in the playoff race, it is time to help the team build toward the future. First, the team should rest anyone who is injured (looking at you Steve Downie) and should play its young defensmen for the remaining three games. Tyson Barrie and Stefan Elliott are part of the Avs' future and they need to play, not sit in the press...

Colorado Avalanche: Thoughts on the Tyson Barrie Promotion/Stefan Elliott Demotion

  This morning, the Colorado Avalanche recalled defenseman Tyson Barrie from their American Hockey League affiliate, the Lake Erie Monsters and sent defenseman Stefan Elliott back down to Lake Erie.  Both Barrie and Elliott are promising, young, puck-moving defensemen in the Avalanche organization.  Both players were drafted by the Avs in 2009, the same draft that saw the Avs...

Aaron Musick: Elliott, Porter in, Jones, O'Brien out

If Joe Sacco's were a dance, it would definitely be the hokey pokey. He puts David Jones in, puts David Jones out and shakes it all about. For tonight's Avs-Wild game Stefan Elliott is coming back in the lineup after his first ever healthy scratch. However, instead of Jan Hejda (team-worst -15), Ryan O'byrne (who can't hold onto his stick) or Ryan Wilson, Shane...

Aaron Musick: Stefan Elliott: struggling or over his head?

when Stefan Elliott arrived, he was a great change of pace for the Avs, adding speed, scoring and a really hard shot. He had three points, two of them goals in his first three games and looked like a breath of fresh air. Then, not even a month later, he wowed the Avalanche crowd with this goal. However, lately Elliott has struggled. His assist in the last game against the Florida Pan...

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...

Aaron Musick: Elliott shines in win over Oil

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...

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.

So, when Erik Johnson was placed on injured...
