Avs Morning Skate Report: Kiefer Sherwood in; Calvert day-to-day



Kiefer Sherwood Avs

The early-season injury woes continue for the Avs, who will now be without the services of one of their most reliable forwards so far this season.

Matt Calvert was missing from practice today with an upper-body injury, according to head coach Jared Bednar. He did not give a timetable for a return.

Slotting in on the Avs fourth line in Calvert’s stead will be Kiefer Sherwood, who signed a one-year deal with Colorado back in October. Sherwood, 25, has 60 games of NHL experience over the last two seasons with the Anaheim Ducks, scoring six goals and 13 points.

“I just try to do the little things right and use my skating and my work to create some energy for the team,” Sherwood said of his playing style. “And when I can, try and use my shot and just play the game the right way…Just put my head down and go to work.”
