  • Canucks' Sheldon Dries: Lands on waivers

    Dries was waived by Vancouver on Friday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

    Dries has appeared in eight NHL games over the past two seasons and figures to spend the bulk of the upcoming campaign in the AHL. Even when with the big club, he doesn't provide much if any fantasy value.

  • Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Back to minors

    Dries was assigned to AHL Colorado on Thursday, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports.

    Dries hasn't played with the big club since Feb. 16. The 26-year-old will head down to minors to get some game action. He typically is a strong offensive contributor in the minors, as he produced 21 goals and 14 assists across 50 AHL contests last year.

  • Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Suits up Sunday

    Dries had 7:41 of ice time in Sunday's 1-0 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Appearing in his second game of the season, Dries and Jayson Megna took up residency on the fourth line in a contest that Colorado played without Matt Calvert (upper body), Tyson Jost (COVID-19 protocol) and Gabriel Landeskog (COVID-19 protocol). All three could return to action this week -- head coach Jared Bednar expects Jost and Landeskog on Saturday -- so Dries may be in the lineup for Tuesday's game against Vegas.

  • Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Playing Tuesday

    Dries was called up from the taxi squad and will make his season debut Tuesday against the Wild, Scott MacDonald of Colorado Hockey Now reports.

    The Avalanche reached down for a center after it was announced Nathan MacKinnon (lower body) is week to week. Both MacKinnon and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare (knee) were deemed week-to-week, so Dries could be around for another week or more. He's serving as the center on the fourth line.

  • Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Re-signs with Avalanche

    Dries led AHL Colorado with 21 goals last season and ended up playing six games, including one playoff game, with the big club. The 26-year-old will return to the team and vie for a full-time NHL role, and he'll need a strong training camp to secure that job. More likely than not, he'll spend time at both levels next season.

  • Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Assigned to AHL affiliate

    The Avalanche assigned Dries to AHL Colorado on Tuesday, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports.

    Dries' demotion suggests that at least one of Colorado's injured forwards should be ready to return Wednesday against the Rangers. The 25-year-old American went scoreless in two appearances while averaging a mere 5:16 of ice time per contest during his brief stay with the big club.

  • Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Summoned to The Show

    The Avalanche recalled Dries from AHL Colorado on Thursday.

    The Avalanche only had 11 healthy forwards on their roster prior to Dries' promotion, so he'll likely slot into a bottom-six role for Friday's clash with the Canucks.
