Top Hunter Miska News

  • Avalanche's Hunter Miska: Sent to AHL affiliate

    Miska was reassigned to AHL Colorado on Friday, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports.

    Miska will head to the minors for the weekend, but he'll undoubtedly be recalled by the Avalanche prior to the big club's Game 1 matchup versus St. Louis on Monday.

  • Avalanche's Hunter Miska: Rejoins taxi squad

    Miska was promoted to the taxi squad Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    Devan Dubnyk (COVID-19) is expected to miss at least two weeks while in the league's virus protocol after a positive test. Miska will rejoin the taxi squad to provide emergency goaltending depth.

  • Avalanche's Hunter Miska: Bumped to AHL

    Miska was assigned to AHL Colorado on Sunday, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Miska had been on Colorado's taxi squad but will bump down a level with Philipp Grubauer back from COVID-19 protocols. The 25-year-old Minnesota native is unlikely to see any more action in the Avalanche net this season.

  • Avalanche's Hunter Miska: Up to taxi squad

    Miska was recalled from AHL Colorado to the taxi squad Saturday, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Miska's five appearances with the Avalanche this season have been mostly disastrous, as his ghastly 4.15 GAA and .838 save percentage suggest. He's likely to continue bouncing between the AHL and taxi squad and won't see much meaningful NHL action barring injury.

  • Avalanche's Hunter Miska: Bounces back in AHL

    Miska stopped 20 of 22 shots in AHL Colorado's win over AHL Henderson on Wednesday.

    This was Miska's first game since his demotion from the Avalanche and second win for the goalie with the Eagles. His replacement at the NHL level, Jonas Johansson, had a difficult night in his first appearance with the Avs, but the organization has no plans at this time to bring back Miska.

  • Avalanche's Hunter Miska: Demoted to AHL affiliate

    Miska was assigned to AHL Colorado on Friday, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Miska has struggled in limited action with the Avalanche this season, compiling a 1-1-2 record while posting an ugly 4.15 GAA and .838 save percentage. The 25-year-old American will, however, likely return to the big club's active roster sooner rather than later.

  • Avalanche's Hunter Miska: Only lasts one period

    Miska gave up four goals on seven shots in Tuesday's 8-4 win over the Ducks.

    Miska was responsible for all four of the Ducks' goals in a chaotic first period. Once Philipp Grubauer entered in relief of Miska at the start of the second, the Avalanche rallied with six unanswered goals. The 25-year-old Miska didn't factor in the decision, but his GAA rose to 4.16 with an .838 save percentage in five appearances. Head coach Jared Bednar probably can't put much trust in the Minnesota native at this point, so Grubauer should be expected to see the vast majority of the starts.

  • Avalanche's Hunter Miska: Gets starting nod

    Miska will patrol the crease during Tuesday's home game against Anaheim, NHL.com's Rick Sadowski reports.

    Miska wasn't great in his last start March 6 against the Ducks, surrendering five goals on 27 shots en route to a 5-4 overtime loss. The 25-year-old rookie will attempt to bounce back and secure his second win of the season in a rematch with the same Anaheim club Tuesday.

  • Avalanche's Hunter Miska: Late lead evaporates

    Miska stopped 22 of 27 shots Saturday in a 5-4 overtime loss to Anaheim.

    Miska had a 4-2 lead in the third period, but goals by Anaheim's Troy Terry and Kevin Shattenkirk in the final seven minutes of regulation tied the game, and Ryan Getzlaf completed the rally with a power-play strike in overtime. The 25-year-old slipped to 1-1-2 with a 3.50 GAA and .865 save percentage.

  • Avalanche's Hunter Miska: Tending twine against Ducks

    Miska will guard the home net in Saturday's game against the Ducks, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports.

    Philipp Grubauer started in Friday's win over the Ducks, so Miska gets the nod Saturday. Miska has made three starts this season, recording an .883 save percentage and a 1-1-1 record. Those numbers aren't very impressive, but this is certainly an intriguing matchup for fantasy purposes, as the Ducks rank last in the league with 2.04 goals per game.

  • Avalanche's Hunter Miska: Earns first NHL win

    Miska stopped 16 of 18 shots in Friday's 3-2 win over the Coyotes.

    Miska came within two minutes of a shutout in just his fourth career appearance, but the Coyotes struck twice late to make it interesting. The 25-year-old Miska has allowed nine goals on 77 shots through three games this season. He's not likely to see a lot of playing time, but Philipp Grubauer needed a breather Friday. Grubauer will likely start Saturday's game in Arizona, leaving Miska to watch from the bench.

  • Avalanche's Hunter Miska: Starting in goal Friday

    Miska will defend the road goal in Friday's game versus the Coyotes, Alexander Kinkopf of the Coyotes' official website reports.

    Miska will make his third start of the season with the Avalanche set to play on back-to-back nights. The 25-year-old Miska lost his first two starts of the year -- both on the road -- and posted an .881 save percentage in the process. He draws a favorable matchup, as the Coyotes enter Friday's game ranked 23rd in the league with 2.63 goals per game.

  • Avalanche's Hunter Miska: Jumps to active roster

    Miska was promoted to the active roster on an emergency loan, per CapFriendly.

    Miska was shuffled to AHL Colorado on Wednesday, but that was only a paper move. Miska and Adam Werner figure to continue competing for the backup job behind Philipp Grubauer.

  • Avalanche's Hunter Miska: Headed to minors

    Miska was reassigned to AHL Colorado on Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

    Miska just cleared the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Wednesday. The 25-year-old likely needs some playing time in the minors to get up to game speed before linking up with the big club again. In a corresponding move, Peyton Jones was promoted to the taxi squad.

  • Avalanche's Hunter Miska: No longer on protocols list

    Miska is no longer listed on the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list, per TSN.

    Miska is currently on Colorado's taxi squad serving as the Avalanche's emergency option in goal. He's made two starts for the big club this campaign, going 0-1-1 while posting a 3.55 GAA and an .881 save percentage.

  • Avalanche's Hunter Miska: Back to taxi squad

    Miska (COVID-19 protocol) was reassigned to the taxi squad Monday, per CBS Sports.

    Miska hasn't seen any NHL action since Jan. 31 but could be Philipp Grubauer's backup once he's off the COVID-19 list. The 25-year-old has allowed seven goals on 59 shots in two appearances with the Avalanche this season.

  • Avalanche's Hunter Miska: Assigned to minors

    Miska (COVID-19 protocol) was assigned to AHL Colorado on Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

    It's unclear if this is a paper move for the Avalanche or if they want to get Miska a conditioning stint in the minors. With Miska away from the big club, Adam Werner will handle the backup duties behind Philipp Grubauer.

  • Avalanche's Hunter Miska: Moves to protocol

    Miska was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Monday, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

    This doesn't necessarily mean Miska tested positive for the virus. With Pavel Francouz (lower body) on long-term injured reserve, Adam Werner will serve as Philipp Grubauer's backup for the time being.
