• Avs' Brophey Registers Four Helpers During AHL Game

    News: Playing for the AHL Lake Erie Monsters, Bropehy set a club record with four assists Dec. 28 as the Monsters downed the Grand Rapids Griffins 6-5.

    Analysis: The Avs have also recalled David van Der Gulik from the Monsters, so it's unclear whether Evan Brophey will need to suit up for Thursday's game against San Jose. The Avs have 11 healthy forwards on the roster right now, so Brophey may just be a depth player at this point. He has 12 points (8G, 4A) in 26 games for the Avs' farm club this season.
