Kamenev (shoulder) was qualified by Colorado on Tuesday, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.
Kamenev only managed five points in 23 appearances with the Avalanche in 2018-19, ending the season on injured reserve with a shoulder injury. Acquired in 2017 as part of a three-team deal involving the Senators and Predators, Kamenev has yet to find his feet at the NHL level, but at just 22 years of age, time remains on the youngster's side, regardless of what jersey he is sporting next season.
Kamenev (shoulder) ended the 2018-19 campaign on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.
Kamenev was deemed fit to play ahead of Game 3 against San Jose, so although he's technically still listed on injured reserve, he'll be ready to rock for next campaign's training camp. The 22-year-old forward finished the season with a modest two goals and five points in 23 appearances with the Avalanche.
Kamenev (shoulder) is available to play, but will not suit up against the Sharks on Tuesday, Rick Sadowski of NHL.com reports.
Technically, Kamenev is still listed on injured reserve per the NHL media site, but the fact that he is considered healthy by the team means he could be activated at any point. Even if the club does remove him from IR, he is unlikely to break into the lineup over Matt Calvert (upper body) or Sven Andrighetto.
Kamenev (shoulder) took part in an optional skate Monday sporting a regular jersey, AJ Haefele of BSN Denver reports.
It's still a few steps away from returning to action, but at least Kamenev is making strides in his recovery. Full participation at a well attended practice will be the next step for the center, who has been sidelined since Dec. 8. Even once cleared to play, there is no guarantee Kamenev will slot back into the lineup and he may have to settle for watching from the press box as a healthy scratch.
Kamenev (shoulder) was on the ice in a non-contact jersey Tuesday, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.
Kamenev is just now hitting the ice in any capacity since his injury was first reported Dec. 10. The Russian pivot required surgery on the shoulder, and at this rate, it seems like a foregone conclusion that he'll miss the rest of the regular season.
Kamenev (shoulder) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.
Kamenev is set to be sidelined indefinitely after undergoing should surgery, so this move was expected. Colorado has yet to release any details regarding a potential timetable for the Russian pivot's recovery, but it wouldn't be surprising if he's forced to miss the rest of the season.
Kamenev will require shoulder surgery, Rick Sadowski of NHL.com reports.
We don't have a timetable for Kamenev's return, but shoulder surgery will leave him out indefinitely, and it will probably be a while. With the 22-year-old out of the lineup, the Avalanche will need to call somebody up to replace him on the roster.
Kamenev scored a power-play goal and tallied an assist in Wednesday's 7-3 win over Los Angeles.
The Russian rookie has two goals and five points in 16 games this season. His bottom-six role limits his potential for now, but the 2014 second-rounder will have more value in dynasty formats.
Kamenev scored a goal on his lone shot during Thursday's 6-5 loss to Calgary.
It was a big moment for Kamenev, as it marked the first time in 13 career NHL games that he found the back of the net. The goal was a shorthanded tally as the Russian opened the scoring in the 11-goal thriller. Expect Kamenev to remain in a supporting role despite notching a point Thursday.
Kamenev was promoted from AHL Colorado on Monday.
Kamenev's call-up could be an indication of a potential injury ahead of Tuesday's matchup with Columbus, although nothing has been announced by the team. In five career NHL games, the center has failed to secure a point. If he does suit up versus the Blue Jackets, the Russian will likely take on a bottom-six role and could be moved to the wing depending on who is hurt.
Kamenev (lower body) was activated from injured reserve and subsequently reassigned to AHL Colorado on Thursday.
The AHL's Eagles are the newly minted affiliate of the Avalanche, and the close proximity between the two rinks will provide the big club with the luxury of more easily shuffling AHL-eligible players to the minors when necessary. Kamenev was drafted in the second round (42nd overall) of the 2014 draft by Nashville before the Avs acquired him in a three-team deal in November of 2017.
Kamenev (lower body) will start the 2018-19 campaign on injured reserve, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.
Kamenev appeared in just three games for the Avs last season, instead spending the bulk of the year watching from the press box. In total, between the AHL and NHL, the center logged a mere 20 games in 2017-18, which certainly won't help his long-term development. Once cleared to return, the Russian could find himself in a similar situation and has no guarantee of a spot in the lineup. If the Avs used a retroactive designation, Kamenev could still slot into the lineup against Minnesota on Thursday, though that seems highly unlikely and fantasy owners should expect him to miss some time.
Kamenev missed Thursday's practice session due to a lower-body issue, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.
While Kamenev's injury is not considered serious, any absence at this point could impact his ability to make the 23-man roster for Opening Night. The center has just five games of NHL experience and is still looking for his first point, despite having logged 144 games in the AHL in which he tallied 104 points.
Kamenev, who was held out of the 2018 postseason, is looking forward to a fresh start with the Avalanche, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.
Kamenev reportedly is working on getting a handle of the English language. Last season, that was a major challenge for the Russian, as he had largely been unable to understand what coaches and teammates were telling him. Kamenev is not fluent in English at this point, but he said, "Now I feel a lot better. I can speak with the guys." The Predators traded the 2014 second-round (42nd overall) draft pick to the Avalanche in a three-team blockbuster that included Matt Duchene and Kyle Turris moving to Ottawa and Nashville, respectively, but Kamenev broke his forearm last November and only appeared in three games at the top level. Now healthy, he'll look to stand out in training camp in hopes of cracking the Opening Night roster with Colorado.
Kamenev was sent down to AHL San Antonio on Saturday, per the official TSN transaction list.
Since being acquired from Nashville in the Matt Duchene trade, Kamenev's only played in three games in the NHL, and wasn't able to log a point. The 21-year-old has been able to find tremendous success in the minors throughout the last two seasons though, scoring 59 points (21 goals, 38 assists) in 77 games.
Kamenev finished with a minus-1 rating and failed to put a shot on goal in Sunday's win over Detroit.
Sunday marked Kamenev's first time in the lineup since breaking his arm Nov. 16, having missed 51 games due to the injury. The 21-year-old Kamenev is currently filling a fourth-line role for the Avs, but he's a highly-regarded offensive prospect who's already scored 104 points in 144 AHL contests and could assume an enhanced role down the stretch.
Kamenev (forearm) is back with the Avalanche and will play against the Red Wings on Sunday, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
This is only Kamenev's second game with the Avalanche this season. The 21-year-old has spent most of the season in the ECHL before heading to AHL San Antonio for a conditioning stint after he suffered a forearm injury. He's considered one of Colorado's best prospects, so it will be interesting to see how he is deployed.
Kamenev (forearm) was sent to AHL San Antonio on Sunday for a conditioning stint.
Kamenev has spent the season playing for ECHL Cincinnati, suiting up for 57 games and recording two goals and 18 assists. He hasn't played a NHL game since Nov. 16, though, so they Avalanche apparently want him to get some action with a tougher minor-league affiliate before he slots back in with the big club.
Kamenev (forearm) has been cleared and will travel on the team's upcoming road trip, though he won't play in either game, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.
Contrary to previous reports, Kamenev will remain with the team rather than beginning a conditioning stint with AHL San Antonio. The 2014 second-round pick played just a single game with the Avs before sustaining the injury, which will now have forced him to miss at least 50 games. Expect Kamenev to continue practicing with the team during the road trip as he prepares for a return to the lineup.
Kamenev (forearm) has received medical clearance to return, but he's still expected to require conditioning in the minors with AHL San Antonio, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.
The rookie center, whom the Predators originally selected in the second round (42nd overall) of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, would end up getting hurt in the first game of the season, and he's been out ever since. Therefore, it's no surprise that he's being considered for a conditioning assignment. Given his high draft stock, it will be worth keeping an eye on Kamenev once he's back from the AHL
