Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Garners helper Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert posted an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Kings.

With only 11 forwards in the lineup Tuesday, there was some rotation among Avalanche forwards. Most notably, Calvert got a helper on Brandon Saad's opening tally in the first period. Normally a fourth-liner, Calvert is a reliable defensive wing. The assist was his first point in three games, and he's added four hits and three shots so far.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Jared Bednar said Sunday that Calvert (undisclosed) will be ready for training camp, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

Calvert missed the entire Western Conference finals against Dallas with an undisclosed injury but appears healthy for the upcoming 2020-21 season. The 31-year-old winger scored 12 goals and 25 points across 50 games last season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert (undisclosed) won't play in Friday's Game 7 against the Stars, Adrian Dater of reports.

Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Not ready for game action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert (undisclosed) isn't on the ice for warmups and won't suit up in Wednesday's Game 6 showdown against the Stars, Adrian Dater of reports.

Calvert took part in the team's pregame skate ahead of Wednesday's matchup, but he's still not ready to return. The veteran will miss his sixth straight game with the undisclosed issue.

Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Skates Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert (undisclosed) took part in Wednesday's game-day skate, though his status remains uncertain for Game 6 versus Dallas, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

Calvert has already been on the shelf for five straight contests due to his undisclosed issue. If the winger does return to action Wednesday, he figures to slot into a bottom-six role, making him a mid-range fantasy option at best. In eight playoff games, Calvert has notched one goal, two assists and 19 shots while averaging 13:52 of ice time.

Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Not playing Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert (undisclosed) will not suit up for Monday's Game 5 tilt with the Stars, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

Calvert has been absent for five consecutive games now and it's unclear when he'll be able to return if the Avalanche can keep their season alive Monday. He tallied three points in eight games since the NHL returned to play prior to his injury.

Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Will sit out Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert (undisclosed) won't play in Sunday's Game 4 versus the Stars, Thomas Drance of The Athletic Vancouver reports.

Calvert has yet to play in this series, and head coach Jared Bednar hasn't revealed much about what he's dealing with. His absence has allowed Vladislav Namestnikov to remain in the lineup.

Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Ruled out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert (undisclosed) will not be in the lineup for Game 3 versus Dallas on Wednesday, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

Calvert will miss his third straight game due to his undisclosed issue. Prior to getting hurt, the winger notched three points in his previous four contests while averaging 14:13 of ice time. Without Calvert in the lineup, Tyson Jost figures to maintain his spot on the fourth line.

Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Unavailable against Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert (undisclosed) won't be in action versus the Stars in Monday's Game 2 tilt and is still considered day-to-day, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

In the five-game series against Arizona, Calvert garnered one goal, two assists and 12 shots while averaging 14:20 of ice time. The previously injured Vladislav Namestnikov slotted into Calvert's spot in the lineup in Game 1 and should continue to do so Monday.

Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Out for Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert (undisclosed) was deemed "unfit to play" in Game 1 versus the Stars on Saturday, Adrian Dater of reports.

This is surprising since Calvert took line rushes during warmups. His absence will open the door for Vladislav Namestnikov to return to the lineup.

Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Two points in Game 4 rout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert scored a goal and an assist Monday during the Avalanche's 7-1 win over the Coyotes in Game 4 of their first-round series.

He set up Matt Nieto for the game's opening goal midway through the first period, then added one of his own early in the third as the Avs poured on the offense. Calvert went four games without a point to begin the postseason, not a surprising performance for a fourth-line player, but he now has a goal and three points in the last three contests.

Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Fully recovered
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert (lower body) was close to returning when the NHL halted play in mid-March, so he should be 100 percent healthy once Colorado's training camp gets underway in July, Ryan Clark of The Athletic reports.

Calvert was given a multi-week recovery timetable when he suffered his lower-body injury in mid-February, but he's had nearly four months to recover at this point, so it's hardly surprising that he's expected to be ready for the Avalanche's pre-postseason training camp. The 30-year-old winger has picked up 12 goals and 25 points while skating in a bottom-six role through 50 games this campaign.

Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Set to miss weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert (lower body) will be sidelined at least "a couple weeks," according to coach Jared Bednar, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

Prior to getting hurt, Calvert was stuck in a 10-game goal drought during which he managed just one helper. With the winger sidelined, Matt Nieto will jump up to the third line while T.J. Tynan slots back into the lineup after two games in the press box.

Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Monday, per the NHL's official media site.

This move opens up a roster spot for the team to call up forward depth, and Calvert will miss the next three games. The severity of Calvert's injury isn't clear, but he won't be eligible to return until Saturday's road matchup versus the Kings. The 30-year-old Calvert has accrued 25 points (12 goals, 13 assists) through 50 games. T.J. Tynan is expected to enter the bottom six in his place Monday versus the Lightning.

Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Suffers lower-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert suffered a lower-body injury in Saturday's game against the Kings, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

Per Clark, there is no timetable for Calvert's return. Calvert skated 12:47 with two shots on goal and a hit in the contest. T.J. Tynan could enter the lineup if Calvert can't play Monday versus the Lightning -- the Avalanche may also call up a forward for depth.

Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Assist and fight in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert posted a shorthanded assist and a fighting major in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Wild.

Calvert set up Pierre-Edouard Bellemare's second-period tally. The winger then dropped the mitts with Luke Kunin in the third. Calvert snapped a six-game point drought with his assist. The 30-year-old is up to 25 points, 84 shots on net, 56 hits and 39 PIM through 47 games. He's just one point shy of matching his career high from last season.

Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Posts two shots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert recorded a minus-2 rating with two shots on net and a block in a 6-3 loss to the Flyers on Saturday.

The 30-year-old put together a tremendous first half of the season, recording 12 goals and 24 points. With two more goals and three additional points, he'll have career bests in both categories. But Calvert's done that behind a 14.8 shooting percentage, which is his highest since his rookie season in 2010-11. That could mean a sizable dropoff in production during these last few months if his shooting percentage falls back to the mean. Calvert also has a plus-11 rating, 81 shots and 34 PIM in 43 games this season.

Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Tallies shorthanded goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert netted a shorthanded marker and went plus-2 in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Sharks.

Calvert's third shorty of the season was the final goal in the contest. He's at a dozen goals and assists each in 40 appearances this season. The 30-year-old winger has never topped 26 points in a season, but he appears set to do that in 2019-20. Calvert has added 76 shots on goal, 51 hits, 30 PIM and a plus-14 rating.

Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Forces overtime with late goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert potted a goal on three shots in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Penguins.

Calvert tipped in a Cale Makar shot with 31 seconds left in the third period. The Avalanche would lose in overtime, but Calvert's tally ensured one standings point for his team. The 30-year-old winger now has 11 goals and 23 points through 38 appearances this season.

Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Earns assist in blowout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert picked up an assist in Thursday's 7-3 win over the Blues.

Calvert continues to impress in a third-line role -- he has 22 points, 65 shots on goal and 46 hits in 34 games this season. The 30-year-old needs just four more points to match his career-high 26 from last year.
