Barberio was recalled from AHL Colorado on Sunday. Barberio recorded an assist in two games during his conditioning stint. The 29-year-old hasn't played since Jan. 21 and has just one goal in 12 games this season.
The Avalanche sent Barberio to AHL Colorado on Wednesday for conditioning purposes. Barberio hasn't drawn into a contest since Jan. 21, so he will head to the minors to stay sharp down the stretch in the event he's needed. The Avs still have seven other defensemen on the roster, so the club's not lacking for depth ahead of Wednesday's game against the Golden Knights. Look for Barberio to return to the top level after getting in a few games with the Eagles.
Barberio (undisclosed) is no longer listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site. Barberio's impending return will bolster Colorado's depth at defense, but it will almost certainly go unnoticed in fantasy circles, as he's only notched one goal in 12 appearances this season.
Barberio (undisclosed) is on injured reserve, per the NHL's media site. There are unconfirmed reports that Barberio is dealing with a head injury. He's been held out for two straight games and is bound to miss a third Tuesday, with the Avalanche playing host to the Blue Jackets. Instead, look for Patrik Nemeth to sub in on the third pair with Samuel Girard.
Barberio (upper body) is nearing a return and will join the team on its upcoming five-game road trip, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports. The Avs' blueliner sported a regular jersey during Monday's practice, and according to head coach Jared Bednar, could play "somewhere down the road". Healthy or not, the 28-year-old Barberio figures to spend most of his time in the press box, as he's appeared in just eight games so far in 2018-19, tallying a goal and posting a minus-4 rating in those contests. Before returning to game action, Barberio will need to come off injured reserve.
