Bigras was sent down to the AHL on Thursday, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports. Bigras spent 31 games with the big club last season in Denver, recording just three points. He fared significantly better at AHL San Antonio (19 points in 37 games), which is where he'll suit up -- and receive much more ice time than he would with the Avalanche -- to begin the 2016-17 season. J.T. Compher and fellow blueliner Anton Lindholm were also sent down as part of this round of roster cuts.
Bigras went plus-1 with a goal in Tuesday's preseason win over the Wild. Bigras looks rejuvenated after dealing with a concussion last March. It's critical for the 21-year-old to protect his noggin, as he's known for his hockey smarts and reliability within the defensive zone, though such traits make him more valuable in "real life" than the fantasy realm.
Bigras (concussion) will return to the lineup Friday against the Flames, Marc Moser of Altitude TV reports. Sidelined for over a week with a concussion, the Avalanche will regain his services at the perfect time, with only 11 forwards available and the team instead rolling with seven defensemen. It's unclear exactly where the blueliner will slot in, but Bigras remains off the fantasy radar with just two points in 23 games NHL games this season.
Bigras (concussion) remains out of the lineup Wednesday against the Canucks. Bigras is still dealing with the effects of a concussion dating back to early March, so he'll need to clear the league protocol before a return to the lineup is possible. The 21-year-old blueliner does have 12 points through 38 games this season, but remains off the radar in most fantasy leagues.
Bigras (concussion) will not suit up for Saturday's game against the Jets, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports. Bigras did not travel with the team to Winnipeg and it is unclear if he will join them for their next game on Wednesday in Vancouver. Bigras, who suffered the concussion on March 5 against Nashville, has a goal and an assist in 23 games since being called up and will be replaced by Andrew Bodnarchuk or Zach Redmond.
