Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Re-signs with Avalanche
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dries signed a one-year contract with the Avalanche on Friday, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports.

Dries led AHL Colorado with 21 goals last season and ended up playing six games, including one playoff game, with the big club. The 26-year-old will return to the team and vie for a full-time NHL role, and he'll need a strong training camp to secure that job. More likely than not, he'll spend time at both levels next season.

Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Assigned to AHL affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Avalanche assigned Dries to AHL Colorado on Tuesday, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports.

Dries' demotion suggests that at least one of Colorado's injured forwards should be ready to return Wednesday against the Rangers. The 25-year-old American went scoreless in two appearances while averaging a mere 5:16 of ice time per contest during his brief stay with the big club.

Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Summoned to The Show
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Avalanche recalled Dries from AHL Colorado on Thursday.

The Avalanche only had 11 healthy forwards on their roster prior to Dries' promotion, so he'll likely slot into a bottom-six role for Friday's clash with the Canucks. The 25-year-old American has gone scoreless while averaging 7:55 of ice time in three appearances with the big club this campaign.

Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dries practiced with the Avalanche on Tuesday, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

Dries was temporarily sent to the minors Sunday in order to make him eligible for the AHL playoffs, but it's not surprising to see him right back with the big club. The 25-year-old American is expected to skate on Colorado's fourth line against Buffalo on Wednesday.

Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Shifts back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Avalanche reassigned Dries to AHL Colorado on Sunday.

Dries suited up in the past two games for the club on its road trip, going pointless while seeing 7:55 of average ice time. The 25-year-old will head back to the minor-league ranks, where he's racked up 34 points through 47 games this season.

Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Ascends to NHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Avalanche recalled Dries from AHL Colorado on Thursday.

Dries earned his second stint with the big club, as he's already suited up in one NHL game this campaign. The 25-year-old has been a solid contributor in the minor league ranks, notching 34 points through 47 games this season. Dries' first chance to suit up after this latest recall will come Friday against the Ducks.

Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Heads back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Avalanche assigned Dries to AHL Colorado on Saturday.

Dries was called up Thursday and played Friday against the Blackhawks, recording 10:02 of ice time and dishing out seven hits. HIs assignment likely means Mikko Rantanen (lower body) will return to the lineup as expected.

Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Called up from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dries was promoted from AHL Colorado on Thursday.

Dries has racked up 14 points in the AHL this season with eight goals and six assists. Several injuries to the Avalanche lineup will allow the 25-year-old to return to the Avalanche after appearing in 40 games for the team last season, when he recorded six points.

Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Inks one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dries signed a one-year, two-way contract with Colorado on Thursday.

Dries filed for salary arbitration earlier this month, but he and the Avalanche were able to come to terms on a new deal prior to their hearing with an independent arbitrator. The 25-year-old forward appeared in 40 games with the big club in 2018-19, notching three goals and six points over that span. He'll likely have a similar role in 2019-20, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to have him on their radars.

Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Seeking arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dries filed for salary arbitration Friday.

Dries appeared in 40 games for the Avalanche last season, but was able to amass only three goals and three assists while averaging 9:04 of ice time per game. The 25-year-old bounced around the organization's ranks last season, but his reputation as a self-aware pivot with a strong work ethic could serve him well in negotiating a new deal.

Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Bumped down a level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dries was reassigned to AHL Colorado on Friday, Evan Rawal of Mile High Sports reports.

It appears that the Avalanche will continue to feature Andrew Agozzino in the NHL as an indirect replacement for Dries, who is mired in a nine-game point drought with a minus-2 rating over that span. A product of Western Michigan University, Dries -- listed at 5-foot-9 and 185 pounds -- might be short on stature, but he's known as a self-aware pivot with a strong work ethic, so we don't think he's done shuffling between the organization's ranks in 2018-19.

Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Promoted from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Avalanche recalled Dries from AHL Colorado on Saturday.

Dries will provide some depth up front for the Avalanche in Nashville on Saturday, and he's in the lineup for Saturday's contest as the left wing on the fourth line with Matt Nieto (lower body) unavailable. He owns just 22 points through 58 games at the top level this season, leaving Dries off the fantasy radar in all but the deepest of leagues.

Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Dropped to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dries was sent down to AHL Colorado on Sunday, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

Dries has been a regular participant on the Avalanche's bottom-six this season, scoring six points in 35 games during his rookie season. The 5-foot-9 forward will head back to the minors where he notched 30 points last year.

Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Recalled from AHL Colorado
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dries has resurfaced on the Avalanche roster, per the NHL's official media site.

Dries, a rookie who made a name for himself at Western Michigan University, returns to the top level after getting sent to the minors during the NHL's All-Star break. He's already been called up four times this season, which clearly suggests that he's the preferred option for the parent club when injuries strike. Dries has compiled three goals and two helpers over 29 games this season.

Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Bound for AHL Colorado
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dries was demoted to the minors Thursday, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

Dries hasn't seen significant ice time this season (9:19 per game), but has played in 29 contests this year and should find his way back up to the Avs following the All-Star break. Once Vladislav Kamenev (shoulder) is cleared to return, Dries will likely find himself relegated to the press box.

Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Promoted from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dries was recalled from AHL Colorado on Monday.

Prior to his recent stint in the minors, Dries was bogged down in a nine-game goal drought, during which he managed just one helper while averaging 11:51 of ice time. Whether the youngster suits up versus the Islanders on Monday will likely depend on the health of Alex Kerfoot (upper body).

Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Bumped down to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dries was reassigned to AHL Colorado on Thursday.

Dries missed the last two games as a healthy scratch, but the Avalanche have won six straight and need more help on the blue line than the center spot, which is where Dries had been playing.

Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Registers first points of career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dries registered a goal and an assist during Thursday's 6-5 loss to Calgary.

Dries was recalled from the AHL on Tuesday and cashed in with two points during his first game back in the NHL. The points were his first two of the career, as he was involved in two of Colorado's five goals. The shifty forward has seen limited ice time in his five games played this year, so he'll need to continue running at max efficiency to return fantasy value.

Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Promoted Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Avalanche recalled Dries from AHL Colorado on Tuesday.

Dries has drawn into four NHL contests thus far in 2018-19, but he has averaged just 6:54 of ice time per contest during his time with the club. While that hasn't prevented him from recording six shots on goal in addition to four penalty minutes, it's unlikely Dries will provide much in terms of fantasy value even if he's in the lineup Thursday against the Flames.

October 19, 2018 03:53 PM
Avalanche's Sheldon Dries: Sent to minor-league affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Avalanche reassigned Dries to AHL Colorado on Friday.

Dries has been a healthy scratch for two of the Avalanche's last three games, so this move doesn't come as much of a surprise. The 24-year-old pivot will continue to be on the big club's short list of potential call-ups throughout the campaign.
