Avalanche send Greer back to Eagles, recall Calle Rosen



A.J. Greer was recalled by the Avalanche last week, on the road, but never played a game. Today, he was sent back down to the Colorado Eagles of the AHL and defenseman Calle Rosen was the player recalled.

Rosen was the second player included by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the Tyson Barrie-Nazem Kadri trade. Here are his statistics so far with the Eagles:

Eight points in 13 games – good offense. Minus-6 in 13 games. Not so good defense. What is less known is how good/bad the goaltending has been and the adjacent teammates alongside Rosen. Good analytics is hard to find for the AHL.

I have not heard about any injury to the existing Avs roster, which might have forced the Rosen call-up. With Greer going back, this might have been just a simple move of the cupboard. Greer didn’t play a single minute after his call-up. Hey, I’m glad the kid got to draw an NHL paycheck for a few days, at least. That was something like $20,000 in his pocket for practicing a few days. Good work if you can get it.

Avs are now fourth place in the Central Division, by the way. They are five points from being out of the playoff picture. Way too much was made about them winning three in a row on the road last week. This team needs to get it going again, bottom line.

Not sure how much Calle Rosen is going to help in that regard, but let’s move on to Wednesday against Edmonton and see what happens.

Hopefully Rosen was called up to replace Cole minus his one assist yesterday he hasn’t been very good this season. Maybe Cole could be deadline trade bait?


I understand but with his veteran presence you would expect fewer turnovers, less dumb penalties and better zone coverage?

Weren’t you one of those praising them for their road win AD? They do need to stop losing the last game of a road trip and first game of a homestand though.


Obviously the D has not been good. Cole is probably not back to 100% following his surgery, the defense is struggling. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Graves sit a game or two. Poor Girard must be deeply frustrated and feeling as if he has the yips. Also, 27 minutes for Makar–don’t destroy the kid. Is Johnson fully healthy?
