  • Avalanche's Calvin Pickard: Re-signs with Avalanche

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/5/16) Pickard finalized a new two-year contract with Colorado on Tuesday.

    Pickard was a serviceable back-up for the Avs last season as he posted a 7-6-1 record that included one shutout and a 2.56 GAA. The netminder is unlikely to exceed the 25 contests this upcoming campaign, barring injury, which severely limits his fantasy value.

    Avalanche's Calvin Pickard: Can't handle explosive offense of Dallas

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/7/16) Picard saved 27 of 30 shots in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Stars.

    Pickard was no match for Dallas' high-powered offense, allowing two goals on the power play in the second period alone. The netminder had not given up four tallies since Feb. 4, which coincidentally was also against the Stars. In limited action, the 23-year-old hasn't been discouraging, registering a 2.56 GAA and .922 save percentage on the year.

    Avalanche's Calvin Pickard: Starts in net Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/7/16) Pickard has been named Thursday's starter against the Stars.

    Pickard shined in relief Monday when he set aside 23 of the 24 shots that came his way. He will look to build on that effort in another struggle with a high-powered opposition (Stars lead the league with 3.23 goals per game) Thursday when they head to Dallas. However, the Avalanche have dropped each of their last four tilts, and the Stars remain in a battle for playoff positioning. Considering Pickard's road splits (2.89 GAA, .902 save percentage) and his poor outing against the opposition earlier in the season, it's probably best to look elsewhere for netminding options in a heavy slate of games.

    Avalanche's Calvin Pickard: Plays well in relief

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/3/16) Pickard denied 23 of 24 shots after entering at the start of the second period of Sunday's loss to the Blues.

    Starter Semyon Varlamov struggled in the opening frame to the tune of three goals, leading the way for Pickard to handle the final two periods. The 23-year-old has proven to be a reliable backup option, but it's unlikely they'll call on him to start any of the team's final three games.

    Avalanche's Calvin Pickard: 26 saves help team move into wildcard position

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/21/16) Pickard stopped 26 of 28 shots in Sunday's win over the Oilers.

    With the victory, the Avalanche moved into a Wildcard position in the Western Conference. Pickard has only played 18 games this season, posting a 7-5-1 record with a .922 save percentage. Semyon Varlamov is the clear-cut starter in Colorado, but with just 14 goals allowed in his last seven outings, the Russian netminder has proven he can be trusted whenever he's called upon.
