Avs Continue To Show Preference Toward Vets
The Colorado Avalanche are getting older ? and bigger ? on defense.
Having already dropped blueline prospects Chris Bigras (18 years old) and Duncan Siemens (20) from training camp, the Avs dispatched 22-year-old Stefan Elliott to AHL Lake Erie on Wednesday.
His reassignment leaves Colorado with nine defensemen in camp and, judging by those still in attendance, it?s clear new head coach Patrick Roy is looking for players with more seasoning and experience to play right now.
