Martin Kaut, Mikhail Maltsev recalled by Avs



Martin Kaut

When the Avs play in our nation’s capital tomorrow night, Martin Kaut and Mikhail Maltsev will be on the roster. Whether either plays or not remains to be seen, but it seems likely as the short-handed Avs boarded their private jet this morning for D.C. with news they both had been recalled from the Colorado Eagles.

For Kaut, this is yet another chance from the Avs to show something after several stalled attempts. For Maltsev, it’s redemption, however temporary, for being sent to the Eagles in the first place after being acquired from the New Jersey Devils for Ryan Graves.

Dylan Sikura was sent back down to the Eagles. Not called up: Alex Newhook, who played last night for the Eagles in their loss to the Henderson Silver Knights. Newhook did score a goal, though. He was a minus-2 in the game, however. Maltsev had a goal and three assists in the first two games for the Eagles, while Martin Kaut had two assists and a minus-4.

The Avs did not practice today.

Superstreak Bonus!

Jack Johnson tested negative for two days in a row, so he was able to board the flight with the team and presumably will play tomorrow assuming he tests negative again (every Avs player is tested every day). Nathan MacKinnon, as mentioned yesterday, remains home in Denver, having not tested negative two days in a row yet.

The Capitals will see Alexander Ovechkin play in career game No. 1,200 tomorrow. The game, by the way, will be on ESPN, so all you Comcast subscribers can actually, you know, see the game.

AD-This is a big opportunity for Kaut, yes? Know it’s not an end-all, be-all…but if he’s ever going to seize an opportunity, this one is proverbially golden, it would seem…


From what I can see on the ESPN schedule, they’re broadcasting the Isles-Blackhawks game on the main network. Avs – Craps on ESPN+. Washington fans feeling our pain, as their local broadcast is blacked-out, per the RMNB blog.


AD – any word on Shane Bowers who I thought had a much better camp than Kaut?

I for one, would really appreciate some basic Eagles coverage on here. Game Recaps, or something, would be awesome.


Yes, how about an intern? From Eagle Land, this is…. A separate section to see how the pipeline is developing.


It would be nice to see Kaut have an opportunity to play more than a game or two to get a a decent sample size of his potential. The Avs have the propensity to want instant impact and if not, it’s back down to the Eagles. Besides learning to play with other line mates – – there is an adjustment to the NHL. Now, if someone isn’t scoring or assisting AND not playing defense or back checking – – that’s a different story. You can contribute in a lot of other ways besides scoring.
