I was surfing on individual hockey team’s official websites and stumbled upon something interesting at coloardoavalanche.com. It reported yesterday the club had called up goaltender Vitaly Kolesnik in time for tonight’s game against the Boston Bruins.
Now, I realize thescore.ca is not the most reliable source, but it reported it’s unusual for the Avs (or any team) to carry three healthy goalies, as neither David Aebischer or Peter Budaj are injured. That’s leading to speculation GM Pierre Lacroix is preparing to make a trade.
Spector had this to say about it: ”So, something could be going on here. This move would suggest Lacroix is intending to move a goalie, and there have been numerous rumours that Aebischer could be on his way out. Perhaps Kolesnik has been recalled in case another goalie about to join the Avalanche (maybe Roberto Luongo???) is unable to do so tonight.”
