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.

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.

Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Adds two more goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert scored a pair of goals on three shots with a plus-1 rating, one hit and one block in a 6-4 loss to the Wild on Friday.

The veteran winger has tallied a pair of two-goal games in his last three contests, and during that mini-stretch, he's recorded a plus-5 rating. With these four latest goals, Calvert is approaching a career high in goals, but his shooting percentage is also now a whopping 16.7 percent. That's likely to fall at some point, but the question is whether it will drop enough to prevent Calvert from setting career bests in goals and points. He has 10 goals and 21 points with a plus-12 rating in 31 games this season.

Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Pots pair in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert scored twice on five shots, dished three hits and went plus-2 in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Blackhawks.

Calvert's two tallies staked the Avalanche to a 3-1 lead that didn't hold up in the third period. The winger snapped a four-game dry spell, putting his season totals at eight goals, 19 points and 55 shots on goal through 29 appearances. He had a career-high 26 points last season, but the 29-year-old appears poised to shatter that mark in 2019-20.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert (personal) notched an assist in Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Flames.

Calvert helped out on Nathan MacKinnon's third-period tally, which cut the deficit to 4-3 at the time. Calvert has four points in his last three games and 16 points through 23 appearances overall. While he skates in a bottom-six role, the 29-year-old has produced plenty of offense this season.

Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Back in lineup Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert (personal) will play in Monday's game against the Flames, Marc Moser of Altitude Sports 950 reports.

Calvert missed Saturday's win over the Bruins as he dealt with a family matter, but he'll be back for this Western Conference clash. It's unsettled where he will draw into the lineup, and there's a chance he draws onto the second line, although it's more likely he fits into the bottom six.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert will miss Saturday's game in Boston due to personal reasons, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

Calvert will be away for a family commitment. While the length of his absence is unknown at this time, there's a good chance Calvert will be back by the time Colorado hosts the Flames on Monday. Vladislav Kamenev (illness) will make his return to the lineup in Calvert's place.

Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Back with bang
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert picked up two points in a 3-2 win over the Canadiens on Thursday.

Calvert drew the primary assist on the game's first goal and then scored a shorthanded marker that wound up being the difference Thursday. It was Calvert's first game-winning goal since the 2016-17 season. The winger recently missed six games with a concussion, but Calvert has found the scoresheet three times in two games since returning to the lineup.

Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert (concussion) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Maple Leafs.

Calvert has been sidelined since mid-November due to a concussion, but he was a full participant at Monday's practice, which was the first sign that he'd likely be an option for Wednesday's contest. The 29-year-old is expected to return to a top-six role, skating with Nazem Kadri and J.T. Compher on Colorado's second line against Toronto.

Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Practices without limitations
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert (upper body) wore a regular jersey at Monday's practice, Rick Sadowksi of reports.

Calvert is nearing his first return to game action since Nov. 16, but he'll need to be taken off injured reserve before he's eligible to suit up. The 29-year-old winger has scored between 23 and 26 points in five of the past six seasons, but he's on pace to surpass that production with 12 points already through 20 appearances.

Avalanche's Matt Calvert: No timeline for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvert (upper body) traveled back to Colorado and is out indefinitely, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

Calvert exited Saturday's win over the Canucks in the third period and didn't return. According to Clark, coach Jared Bednar said that although Calvert doesn't have a concussion, the veteran winger doesn't feel right and is going through concussion protocol. The Avalanche return home from their road trip Saturday against the Maple Leafs, but it appears Calvert will be out longer than that.
