Calvert missed Wednesday's Game 7 loss to the Sharks due to an upper-body injury.
Although Calvert was unable to rejoin the lineup prior to Colorado's elimination from the playoffs, his upper-body injury isn't believed to be overly serious, so he should be back to 100 percent well ahead of next season's training camp. The veteran forward will play an important role for the Avalanche as a penalty-killing specialist in 2019-20, but his lack of offensive upside will keep him off the radar in most fantasy formats.
Calvert (upper body) wasn't on the ice for Wednesday's morning skate, which indicates he likely won't be in the lineup for Game 7 against San Jose, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.
With Calvert still sidelined, the Avalanche appear poised to roll with seven defensemen and 11 forwards for a second straight game Wednesday, which was clearly a recipe for success during their Game 6 win. If Colorado is able to pull off the upset over the Sharks in Game 7, Calvert will likely get an opportunity to rejoin the lineup at some point during the Western Conference finals against St. Louis.
Calvert -- who sat out Game 5 due to an upper-body injury, per Josh Dubow of The Durango Herald -- was absent from Monday's game-day skate and figures to miss Game 6 against San Jose, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.
Calvert appears to have aggravated the same upper-body issue that held him out for Game 3. Without the winger available, the club is poised to dress Patrik Nemeth as a seventh defensemen, rather than forward Sven Andrighetto. At this point, Calvert should be considered questionable at best to return for a potential Game 7 on Wednesday.
Calvert posted an assist and two shots in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Sharks in Game 4.
Calvert has four assists over his last five games, having missed Game 3 against the Sharks with an upper-body injury. The winger is more noted for his physical play, with 18 PIM and 21 hits in eight games in the playoffs, but he can also provide some depth scoring.
Calvert will lace up the skates for Thursday's Game 4 against the Sharks, Adrian Dater of BSN Denver reports.
Calvert skipped Game 3 because of the upper-body issue, but it appears the bottom-six winger has avoided a major injury and will be back in the fold for the Avs on Thursday. He tallied two assists in Game 2 and owns three points this postseason, making him a potential sleeper for DFS lineups.
Calvert (upper body) is considered questionable for Thursday's Game 4 against San Jose, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.
Calvert missed Tuesday's Game 3 due to an upper-body injury, but he was a full participant at practice Wednesday, and appears to be on track to rejoin the lineup Thursday. However, it wouldn't be surprising to see the Avalanche wait until pregame warmups to release official word on the veteran forward's status for Game 4.
Calvert (upper body) will return to the lineup for Thursday's Game 4 clash with San Jose, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.
Calvert missed Game 3 due to his upper-body issue, but should slot back into a bottom-six role. The winger notched a pair of assists his last time out and will no doubt be eager to get back on the scoresheet. Sven Andrighetto figures to be the odd man out once again.
Calvert sustained an upper-body injury and will miss Game 3 versus San Jose on Tuesday, Adrian Dater of BSN Denver reports.
Calvert -- who is coming off a two-point performance in Game 2 -- will be replaced in the lineup by Sven Andrighetto. The 28-year-old Calvert was on the ice for the game-day skate, per Mike Chambers of The Denver Post, so it appears his injury may not be too severe and can probably be labeled day-to-day ahead of Game 4 on Thursday.
Calvert tallied a pair of assists in Sunday's 4-3 victory over San Jose.
Despite his two-point afternoon, Calvert remains bogged down in a 12-game goal drought dating back to March 27 versus Vegas. The Manitoba native only put 16 shots on net during his slump, so his chances of tickling the twine are certainly limited.
Calvert had an assist, three shots and five hits in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime with over the Flames in Game 4.
Calvert entered the contest on a five-game pointless streak before finding J.T. Compher for the Avalanche's first goal of the game. Calvert had 26 points in 82 contests in the regular season, but he's mostly used as a bottom-six forward, which gives him little fantasy appeal in the postseason.
Calvert scored his 11th goal of the season and blocked two shots in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Golden Knights.
The tally gives Calvert 25 points in 77 games, which set a new personal best after he went 15 games without a point. He has a career-high 134 shots on goal, and with 109 hits, he's only two shy of matching his previous top mark in that category.
Calvert was held off the scoresheet for a seventh straight game, finishing Thursday's 4-0 loss to Dallas with a minus-2 rating.
On a positive note, Calvert led his team with three takeaways in Thursday's loss. The bottom-six winger needs just a single point in the 14 remaining games to set a new career high. The 29-year-old has, three times in his career, finished a season with 24 points. Calvert has 10 goals and 14 assists in 68 games.
Calvert fought Jets defenseman Joe Morrow in the Avalanche's 4-1 win Thursday.
He ended the game with seven PIM and an assist on an insurance goal in the third period from Sven Andrighetto. Calvert has a goal and two apples in seven games in February, while also recording 14 hits over that span. With 21 points in 43 games on the year, the third-line winger may appeal to owners in deeper formats.
Calvert racked up seven points in his last 10 outings.
Calvert may not be standing out as much as the Avs' top line, but the winger is providing solid depth scoring of late and could set a new career high in points this season; his current best is 24, which he's hit on three different occasions. Currently slotted into a third-line role, the Manitoba native could play himself into a top-six spot if he can keep rolling after the All-Star break.
Calvert registered an even-strength goal Saturday in a 6-4 home win over the Stars.
The energetic penalty-killing specialist entered the game with four goals and six helpers through 32 appearances. His offensive numbers are mediocre at best, but Calvert's tally from the first frame serves as a reminder that the Avs actually do have skaters outside of the lethal top line (Gabriel Landeskog, Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen) that are capable of scribbling on the scoresheet every now and then -- go figure.
Calvert has picked up two helpers in his last four games. He also has 21 shots on goal.
The Avalanche signed the 28-year-old in the offseason after he spent eight seasons with the Blue Jackets. Calvert is skating with Colorado's third line at the moment, and he's averaged 13:43 of ice time.
Calvert secured a three-year contract with the Avalanche worth $2.8 million AAV, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
After eight years with Columbus -- the team that drafted him in 2008 -- Calvert will head west to compete for a bottom-six role. The 28-year-old will be a nice asset for the Avalanche, as he has posted over 23 points in four of his last five seasons. Calvert has also averaged over 100 shots on goal over the last three campaigns, making him a sneaky pick in deeper leagues.
Calvert, a pending unrestricted free agent, is likely to move on from the Blue Jackets since the two sides have not engaged in any contract discussions, The Athletic reports.
It will be strange to see Calvert donning a different sweater in 2018-19. Having been in Columbus for eight seasons, he's the longest-tenured Blue Jacket. The 28-year-old has recorded 149 points (72 goals, 77 assists) over 416 career contests at hockey's highest level, and while those aren't amazing numbers, he'll presumably have little trouble latching on with an employer that needs help on the penalty kill.
Calvert scored twice Saturday in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Capitals in Game 5.
Calvert has remarkably found twine three times in five games against the Caps. He only had nine snipes in 69 games in the regular season.
Calvert (illness) was on the ice for Wednesday's practice, Tom Reed of The Athletic Cleveland reports.
Calvert missed Monday's matchup with Montreal due to an illness, but his presence on the ice for practice Wednesday indicates he should be good to go for Thursday's game against the Flyers. The Blue Jackets will be happy to have the 28-year-old winger back in the lineup against Philadelphia, as he's played well recently, notching one goal and four points in his last seven contests.
