  • Pickard has been selected by the Vegas Golden Knights in the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft, Frank Seravalli of TSN reports. Pickard figures to serve as the backup to Marc-Andre Fleury for Vegas. In 50 games for the league-worst Avalanche last season, Pickard posted a 15-31-2 record to go along with a 2.98 GAA and .904 save percentage. Those are some ugly numbers, but Pickard played well for Canada at the World Championships and still has potential at age 25. This was a smart selection by the Golden Knights.

  • Pickard allowed three goals on 27 shots in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Blues. Pickard ended the season with a 15-31-2 record, 2.98 GAA and .904 save percentage with two shutouts. He didn't finish strong, allowing at least three or more goals in nine of his final 10 outings.

  • Pickard will finish off the season Sunday in St. Louis, Rick Sadowski of reports. It wasn't easy to be a backstop in Colorado this season, but Pickard held his own for the most part. He may draw a Blues team that -- depending on Saturday's results -- elects to rest some of their starters. If this is the case, the 24-year-old netminder could have a good shot at stealing another game from St. Louis like he did in a March 31 contest, where he deflected 27 of the 28 shots he faced.

  • Avalanche's Calvin Pickard: Narrowly edged by Wild
    By RotoWire Staff

    Pickard was handed a 4-3 home loss to the Wild on Thursday, stopping 24 shots in the process. The Avs outshot the Wild 33 to 28, though Minnesota's club seemed to have better looks, and a game-tying goal by allied skater Sven Andrighetto was overturned. Unfortunately for Pick, despite a couple highlight-reel saves, he would go on to lose his 30th game in 49 appearances. All that remains of Colorado's season is a back-to-back set this weekend against the Stars and Blues, respectively. Presumably, Pickard will play in at least one of those.

  • Pickard will defend the goal for Thursday night's home game against the Wild. Pickard has won just two of his last eight starts, allowing fewer than three goals in just one game during that span. Arguably his worst performance over that stretch came Sunday against Minnesota, when he allowed four goals on just 16 shots through less than two periods. Combine that with the fact that the Wild are averaging 3.05 goals per game on the road, and the 24-year-old makes for a weak fantasy play Thursday.
