  • Avalanche's Calvin Pickard: Thirty-four saves not enough

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/20/17) Pickard stopped 34 of 36 shots in Thursday's tough-luck 2-1 loss to Anaheim.

    Pickard had sat in three consecutive games coming in, but will serve as the starter through at least the All-Star Break with Semyon Varlamov (groin) once again on the mend. While he flailed in that role earlier this season, the 24-year-old did much better here despite the result. He kept the game scoreless through one while the team in front of him was out-shot 22-3, but ultimately couldn't prevent yet another defeat for the last-place Avalanche.

    Avalanche's Calvin Pickard: Defending cage Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/19/17) Pickard will get the starting nod against the Ducks on Thursday, Rick Sadowski of NHL.com reports.

    Pickard will make his first start in three contests after Semyon Varlamov (groin) was shut down until the All-Star break. When he has been in the crease, Pickard as not fared well of late, as he has just one lone victory in his last six appearances. The netminder has performed slightly better on the road -- 2.78 GAA compared to 3.35 GAA at home -- but will face an Anaheim squad who are 4-0-1 in their last five outings.

    Avalanche's Calvin Pickard: Snaps five-game losing streak

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/7/17) Pickard saved 35 of 36 shots during Friday's win over the Islanders.

    Pickard is capable of stealing the odd game, but backstopping the worst team in the league has been a fantasy nightmare. Semyon Varlamov (groin) also severed as the backup Friday and will start to cut into Pickard's workload going forward. There aren't many spots where you can confidently start Pickard, so it doesn't make sense to own him in most seasonal leagues.

    Avalanche's Calvin Pickard: Starting Friday against New York

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/6/17) Pickard will guard the cage in Friday's home game against the Islanders, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.

    Pickard has been terrible of late, suffering five consecutive defeats while posting an abysmal 4.44 GAA and .864 save percentage over that span. The 24-year-old netminder will look to get back on track in a tough matchup with a surging Islanders club that has won four of its last five games, scoring at least four goals in each of those victories.

    Avalanche's Calvin Pickard: Drops fifth straight Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/5/17) Pickard gave up four goals on 37 shots in a 4-1 loss to the Flames on Wednesday.

    That's five straight losses for the 24-year-old, who is now 6-11-1 with an abominable .898 save percentage and 3.19 GAA through 20 appearances. The Avs are dead-last in goals for -- as well as goals allowed -- and are having an atrocious season, so there's really no reason to roll with Pickard right now in any format.
