  • Sven Andrighetto: Moving on to KHL

    Andrighetto's agent, Aljosa Pilko, announced Monday via his personal Twitter account that his client has agreed to a two-year contract with a KHL club.

    Pilko didn't specify which team Andrighetto signed with but Igor Eronko of Sport-Express suggests the Swiss-born winger will join Avangard or Dynamo Moscow. The 26-year-old suited up in 64 games with the Avalanche in 2018-19, totaling seven goals and 10 assists while averaging 11:04 in ice time.

  • Sven Andrighetto: Set to become free agent

    The Avalanche won't give Andrighetto a qualifying offer prior to Tuesday's deadline, which means he'll become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports.

    Colorado has a number of young forwards in the pipeline that should be ready to take on full-time NHL roles in 2019-20, so there's no reason for them to hang onto a fringe player like Andrighetto. The 26-year-old winger should, however, be able to land a gig with another NHL club that's in need of depth up front ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.

  • Avalanche's Sven Andrighetto: Churning out helpers

    Andrighetto has four assists in his last three games.

    The often-streaky winger has found his way onto the scoresheet with more regularity in February, registering five points in 12 games. In Saturday's 5-0 win over the Predators, he also twice raised a referee's arm, earning four PIM. It's unlikely the bad boy routine continues, as those penalties gave Andrighetto 10 PIM this year, matching his career high in the category from last season.

  • Avalanche's Sven Andrighetto: Pots insurance tally

    Andrighetto scored his fourth goal of the season in a 4-1 win over the Jets on Thursday.

    On a delayed penalty call against the Jets, Andrighetto capped off a tic-tac-toe passing play for the game's final goal. Andrighetto hadn't scored since Dec. 14, and he still has just seven points in 39 games. He averaged only 11:22 of ice time per game entering the contest, and Andrighetto's lack of production across almost all statistics makes him safe to avoid in fantasy.

  • Avalanche's Sven Andrighetto: Production halted

    Andrighetto carries a minus-6 rating through nine pointless appearances in 2019.

    Andrighetto tends to produce in spurts -- that's only natural for a guy averaging a mere 11:49 of ice time -- but it's rather disconcerting that he hasn't connected for any power-play points this season as a skater consistently working with the secondary man-advantage group. The fear is that he may be losing confidence in his shot based on a career-worst 5.5 shooting percentage and only three goals over 32 games.

  • Avalanche's Sven Andrighetto: Back at it

    Andrighetto (lower body) will rejoin the lineup for Friday's home game against the Capitals, Marc Moser of Altitude Sports 950 reports.

    Andrighetto has been activated from injured reserve, so he's fully ready to rock. The 25-year-old winger from Switzerland has one goal and a plus-2 rating over six contests, though it appears that he'll be eased back into the lineup as a fourth-liner.

  • Avalanche's Sven Andrighetto: Inching closer to return

    Andrighetto (lower body) isn't expected to play Wednesday against Boston or Friday against the Capitals, but he'll likely join the Avalanche on their upcoming road trip, Marc Moser of Altitude Sports 950 reports.

    Andrighetto has missed Colorado's last five games due to a lower-body injury, but it sounds like he could be ready to return as soon as Sunday against the Ducks. The 25-year-old winger was averaging 2:26 of ice time on the man advantage per game prior to his injury, so he may be worth a look in deeper leagues once he's cleared to play.

  • Avalanche's Sven Andrighetto: Lands on IR

    The Avalanche placed Andrighetto (lower body) on injured reserve Tuesday.

    Andrighetto is considered week-to-week with a lower-body injury, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. There's currently no timetable for the 25-year-old winger's return to game action, but Colorado should release an update on his status once he's cleared to practice.

  • Avalanche's Sven Andrighetto: Suffers lower-body injury

    Andrighetto is week-to-week after sustaining a lower-body injury, Marc Moser of Altitude Sports 950 reports.

    Andrighetto is facing his second significant stint on the sidelines, having missed the first six games of the season. The winger won't travel with the team for its upcoming two-game road trip and will almost certainly be placed on injured reserve in the coming days.

  • Avalanche's Sven Andrighetto: Scores in debut

    Andrighetto scored a goal in what was his first taste of game action Thursday in a 5-3 win over the Devils.

    The Swiss-born forward missed the start of the regular season recovering from a lower-body injury. He wasted little time announcing his return, scoring early in the second period of Thursday's road contest. Andrighetto remains a risky fantasy play who set a career high in points last season with just 22.

  • Avalanche's Sven Andrighetto: Ready to rock

    Andrighetto (lower body) will make his season debut Thursday evening against the Devils, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

    Andrighetto will be activated from injured reserve to reprise his role as a middle-six power-play contributor. The Swiss-born winger produced eight goals, 14 assists -- including three goals and six apples on the man advantage -- over 50 games in 2017-18. He'll be a useful fantasy commodity if ultimately given the chance to play with Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen, but he's more likely to be eased back into the fold.

  • Avalanche's Sven Andrighetto: Skates without contact

    Andrighetto (lower body) skated in a no-contact jersey Tuesday, Rick Sadowski of NHL.com reports.

    Andrighetto is still expected to miss the next four games, opening the door for rookie Sheldon Dries to gain more experience at the top level.

  • Avalanche's Sven Andrighetto: Ruled out for road trip

    Andrighetto (lower body) will not travel for the team's upcoming four-game road trip, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

    The next home game for the Avalanche isn't until Oct. 24, and it appears that's the earliest that Andrighetto could return, though that's not guaranteed at this point. The 25-year-old forward has spent the beginning of the season on injured reserve, but Colorado is still off to a strong 3-1-1 start.

  • Avalanche's Sven Andrighetto: Moves to IR

    Andrighetto (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

    Andrighetto could be out for up to a month, according Mike Chambers of The Denver Post. This is obviously not an ideal situation for the sixth-year winger, but another veteran in Gabriel Bourque is capable of filling the void, at least at even strength.

  • Avalanche's Sven Andrighetto: Comes up with winner

    Andrighetto knocked home the winning goal in Game 5, keeping his team's season alive with a 2-1 win at Nashville on Friday.

    Andrighetto would probably be one of the last players you'd expect to score the game-winner, given his performance this season, but he got the job done when his team needed it most. However, as this is his first point of the playoffs, expecting him to do it again is probably wishful thinking, and he's probably not a great choice for your Sunday lineup in Game 6.

  • Avalanche's Sven Andrighetto: Scores twice in return

    Andrighetto notched two goals, including one on the power play, on five shots in a 5-0 win over the Blackhawks on Friday.

    Andrighetto was returning after a three-game absence due to a lower-body injury, and wasted no time making an impact. The Swiss forward was probably relieved to find the back of the net. Due to a mix of injuries and poor play this is his first goal since Dec. 23. He has eight on the season in 46 games.

  • Avalanche's Sven Andrighetto: Cleared to return

    Andrighetto (lower body) has been given the green light to suit up against the Blackhawks on Friday, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

    Andrighetto -- who missed the Avs' previous three outings -- should resume a top-six role in addition to logging time on the power play. With the man advantage, the winger has notched just seven points, despite averaging 2:34 of ice time. The Zurich native needs just one more tally to reach the 20-point mark.

  • Avalanche's Sven Andrighetto: Remains sidelined

    Andrighetto (lower body) will not be in action versus the Flyers on Wednesday, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

    Andrighetto will miss his third consecutive contest due to his lower-body injury. The winger previously spent 28 games in the press box with a leg ailment that may or may not be related to his current issue. When the 2013 third-round pick returns to the lineup remains to be seen, but if he doesn't get back soon, it may be too late to help the Avs secure a spot in the playoffs.
