Siemens was sent down to AHL San Antonio on Sunday. The 23-year-old only slotted into three NHL games this year, and his six points in 69 AHL games don't inspire much hope for an offensive explosion in the near future.
Siemens has been recalled from AHL San Antonio. Siemens makes his first trip to the big club as the Avalanche prepare for the last four games of the season. The 23-year-old has just six points in 69 games for the AHL's Rampage, but he's also been something of a bruiser with 88 penalty minutes. He's projected to skate with Cody Goloubef for Tuesday's game against the Blackhawks.
Siemens was placed on waivers by Colorado on Saturday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports. Siemens, the No. 11 overall pick in the 2011 draft, is known more for his stay-at-home, defensive prowess than his offensive playmaking ability. Over the last two seasons between AHL Lake Erie and AHL San Antonio, the 23-year-old blueliner recorded one goal and 12 assists over 107 games. He'll likely return to the Rampage to start the upcoming campaign if he passes through his waiver period unclaimed.
The Avalanche re-signed Siemens for one year Friday, TSN reports. It takes a special type of player to boast a 6-foot-3, 200-pound frame and still be graceful on his feet, but Siemens is actually known to be a pretty good skater. The shutdown defenseman played for AHL San Antonio last season, having pitched in one goal, six assists, and 90 PIM in 53 games. According to General Fanager, his contract is two -way, making $874,125 at the NHL level and $70,000 in the likely event that he's utilized in the minors.
Duncan Siemens was reassigned to AHL Lake Erie on Monday.
