Top Bowen Byram News

  • Avalanche's Bowen Byram: Slings helper in win

    Byram posted an assist, two shots on goal and eight hits in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Lightning in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final.

    Byram snapped a four-game point drought by setting up Nathan MacKinnon's game-tying goal in the second period. The 21-year-old Byram didn't score a goal in the playoffs, but he dished out nine assists to go with a plus-15 rating, 44 shots on net and 45 hits in 20 contests. The defenseman should be ready to command a top-four role in 2022-23, which would make him a solid depth blueliner in standard fantasy formats.

    Byram picked up an assist, two shots on goal, two hits and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Lightning in Game 1.

    Byram helped out on Gabriel Landeskog's opening tally 7:47 into the first period. The 21-year-old Byram was limited to one assist in four games versus the Oilers in the last round, but he also posted a plus-5 rating in that span.

  • Avalanche's Bowen Byram: Collects apple in win

    Byram notched an assist, three shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Oilers in Game 3.

    Byram got the puck to Valeri Nichushkin, whose attempted pass deflected off Darnell Nurse's stick and into the net for the Avalanche's first goal. Six of Byram's seven assists in the playoffs have come in the last six games, as he's gotten more comfortable in a larger role on the blue line. He's added 29 shots on net, 27 hits and a plus-12 rating this postseason, though Byram's yet to net his first postseason goal.

  • Avalanche's Bowen Byram: Logs assist Friday

    Byram notched a power-play assist and three shots on goal in Friday's 3-2 win over the Blues in Game 6.

    Byram set up J.T. Compher for a game-tying goal midway through the third period. After a slow start to his postseason career, Byram has found a groove with five helpers in his last three games while playing in a second-pairing role.

  • Avalanche's Bowen Byram: Adds two more helpers

    Byram notched two assists, four shots on goal and three hits in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Blues in Game 5.

    Byram helped out on the first and third goals of Nathan MacKinnon's hat trick Wednesday. In his last two games, Byram has picked up four helpers -- he had just one assist in his first seven playoff contests. Samuel Girard (chest) being out has allowed Byram to take on a larger role, and he's looked solid so far, at least on the scoring side of the ledger.

  • Avalanche's Bowen Byram: Dishes two assists in Game 4

    Byram provided a pair of assists, fired three shots on goal and went plus-2 in Monday's 6-3 win over the Blues in Game 4.

    With Samuel Girard (chest) out for the playoffs, Byram will likely get a chance to play a larger role going forward. He helped out on tallies by Erik Johnson and Nazem Kadri during the Avalanche's four-goal second period Monday. Through eight playoff outings, Byram has three assists, 17 shots on net, 20 hits and a plus-8 rating, though he's mainly been limited to bottom-four minutes.

    Byram provided an assist, five hits and two PIM in Monday's 5-3 win over the Predators in Game 4.

    The helper on Andre Burakovsky's goal was Byram's first career playoff point. The 20-year-old defenseman continues to see sheltered minutes on the third pairing, though he's been in the lineup for all four of the Avalanche's playoff games. The blueliner has added a plus-4 rating, 15 hits, six PIM and a plus-4 rating.

    Byram notched an assist and two shots on goal in Thursday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Predators.

    Byram is up to six assists in 16 games since he returned from a head injury. The 20-year-old defenseman has moved up and down the lineup at head coach Jared Bednar's will, though he's often played in a bottom-four role since his return. For the season, Byram has racked up 17 points, 49 shots on net, 53 hits and a plus-7 rating in 30 appearances.

  • Avalanche's Bowen Byram: Snags helper in loss

    Byram produced an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Oilers.

    For the second time in three games, Byram set up a Valeri Nichushkin tally. With five helpers in nine outings since he returned from a head injury, Byram has resumed a productive top-four role on the blue line. The 20-year-old is up to 16 points, 43 shots on net, 48 hits, 25 blocked shots and a plus-7 rating in 27 contests. He'll likely continue to see his even-strength ice time alongside Cale Makar until Devon Toews (undisclosed) returns.

  • Avalanche's Bowen Byram: Sets up Nichushkin

    Byram had an assist, three hits and a blocked shot in Monday's 3-2 loss to Washington.

It was the fourth assist in seven games since Byram came off the injured list April 2. The run of seven consecutive games played is the second longest streak this season for the rookie, who has been dogged by concussion issues.

    Byram notched an assist, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 5-4 overtime win over the Jets.

    Byram helped out on Andre Burakovsky's second-period tally. This was Byram's second game back after a nearly three-month absence due to lingering symptoms from an earlier head injury. The 20-year-old continues to see time on the third pairing, but he's also been occasionally cycled up to play alongside Cale Makar for an in-game change of pace. Byram has earned 12 points, 38 shots on net, 32 hits and a plus-4 rating through 20 appearances this season.

  • Avalanche's Bowen Byram: Returning to action

    Byram (head) will return to the lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Penguins, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

    Byram hasn't appeared in an NHL contest since Jan. 10 versus Seattle due to a head injury, but he recently drew into two games with AHL Colorado during a brief conditioning stint. The 20-year-old defender, who's racked up five goals and 11 points through 18 top-level appearances this season, should slot into a role on either the second or third pairing against Pittsburgh.

  • Avalanche's Bowen Byram: Recalled from minors

    Byram (head) was called up from his conditioning stint with AHL Colorado on Monday, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Byram played in two games for the Eagles on Friday and Saturday in which he recorded one shot, two PIM and a plus-1 rating. With the young defender back up with the NHL squad, he could be in the mix for a spot in the lineup versus the Penguins on Tuesday and would likely be in line to relegate Kurtis MacDermid to a spot in the press box.

  • Avalanche's Bowen Byram: Set for conditioning stint

    Byram (head) was assigned to AHL Colorado for a conditioning stint Thursday.

    Byram has been ramping up his practice as he recovers from a head injury that's kept him out of the lineup since Jan. 11. Given the lengthy absence, it's unclear how many games Byram will need with the Eagles to get back up to speed. Assuming he can get through the conditioning loan without a setback, he would likely rejoin the Avalanche's lineup as soon as he returns to the big club.

  • Avalanche's Bowen Byram: Traveling with team

    Byram (head) will join the Avs' for their upcoming two-game road trip but is not expected to play.

    Byram has been sidelined since Jan. 10 against the Kraken due to his head injury, a stretch of 32 games on the shelf. In his 18 games before getting hurt, the 20-year-old defenseman had put his offensive skills on display with five goals, including two game-winners, and six helpers. If Byram can return to action, he should challenge Kurtis MacDermid or Jack Johnson for a spot in the lineup.

  • Avalanche's Bowen Byram: Continuing to make progress

    Byram (head) won't play Wednesday versus the Canucks, but he continues to make progress. The defenseman is expected to give head coach Jared Bednar the all-clear when he's ready to play, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports.

    Byram may be sent to AHL Colorado to get into some games before returning to the Avalanche, but it's unclear if or when that might happen. The 20-year-old has only played in five games since the start of 2022 after suffering post-concussion symptoms. Byram figures to rejoin the Avalanche's lineup some time before the end of the regular season if he can avoid any further setbacks.

  • Avalanche's Bowen Byram: Sheds non-contact garb

    Byram (head) skated in a regular jersey Monday, indicating that he's been cleared for contact, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Byram has been sidelined since Jan. 10, and while he remains without a firm return timetable, this is a major step in the right direction. The 20-year-old defenseman won't make his return later Monday against the Oilers, but perhaps another update on his health will surface prior to Wednesday's game against the Canucks.

  • Avalanche's Bowen Byram: Not traveling with team

    Byram (head) will not join the Avs' upcoming two-game road trip, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Byram has continued to practice with the team but is set to be sidelined for at least two more games due to his lingering head injury. With Samuel Girard (lower body) facing an extended absence, the 20-year-old Byram could be immediately reinserted into the lineup if given the all-clear following the team's road trip.

    Byram (head) skated at the Avalanche's practice facility Tuesday, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports.
