Avalanche's Dennis Gilbert: Shifts to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert was reassigned to the taxi squad by the Avalanche on Sunday, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

Gilbert continues to shuffle throughout the organization this season, as he's gone pointless in three games with the big club this year. The 24-year-old will add depth on the back end ahead of Monday's game against the Sharks.

Avalanche's Dennis Gilbert: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert (face) was activated from injured reserve and reassigned to AHL Colorado on Monday, according to CapFriendly.

Gilbert has been out since mid-February after undergoing facial surgery. He'll likely play with AHL Colorado to get his legs back before returning to the NHL level. The 24-year-old could be a healthy scratch when he gets back with the big club.

Avalanche's Dennis Gilbert: Added to protocol list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert (face) was added to the NHL's COVID-19 protocol list Friday, AJ Haefele of DNVR reports.

Gilbert was already expected to be out until at least late March after undergoing facial surgery. It's unclear if this will push his timetable back at all. The 24-year-old was scoreless in three games prior to his injury.

Avalanche's Dennis Gilbert: Out 4-6 weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert (face) is set to miss 4-6 weeks after undergoing facial surgery, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

Gilbert -- who was injured in a fight against Keegan Kolesar on Feb. 16 -- will now be on the shelf until late March, at the earliest. Even when healthy, Gilbert is a fringe roster player and figures to offer low-end fantasy value at best.

Avalanche's Dennis Gilbert: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert (face) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, per CapFriendly.

Gilbert was injured in a fight Tuesday versus the Golden Knights, as he was injured in a scrum with Keegan Kolesar. It's apparently a serious injury for Gilbert, who will be out at least until Friday versus the Coyotes.

Avalanche's Dennis Gilbert: Leaves after fight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert picked up a five-minute fighting penalty during Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Golden Knights and did not return to the game due to a facial injury, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.

Gilbert squared off Keegan Kolesar early in the first period and took at least one good shot to the face. He first headed to the penalty box, then was seen skating off the ice while holding a towel over his nose and mouth. The blueliner finished with one hit over 1:59 before departing. Gilbert was up on the active roster the last two games with Samuel Girard (COVID-19 protocol), Erik Johnson (upper body) and Cale Makar (upper body) unavailable. Both Girard and Makar are expected back for Saturday's outdoor game in Lake Tahoe, so Gilbert was likely destined for the taxi squad following the game.

Avalanche's Dennis Gilbert: Up from taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert was promoted from the taxi squad Tuesday, per CBS Sports.

Gilbert is expected to slot into a third-pairing role again with Cale Makar (upper body) still sidelined.

Avalanche's Dennis Gilbert: Back to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert was sent to the taxi squad Monday, CapFriendly reports.

Gilbert suited up for Sunday's game with Cale Makar (upper body) unable to play. His demotion back to the taxi squad suggests that Makar could be ready to go Tuesday in Vegas, but if not, Gilbert could be recalled again. The 6-foot-2 defenseman is scoreless in two games this season.

Avalanche's Dennis Gilbert: Rises to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert is on the active roster and will play Sunday versus the Golden Knights.

With Erik Johnson and Cale Makar both sidelined by upper-body injuries, Gilbert's presence is needed for Sunday's game. He'll be skating on the right side of a pairing with Conor Timmins in the contest.

Avalanche's Dennis Gilbert: Shifts to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert was recalled from AHL Colorado to the taxi squad Friday.

Gilbert will add depth on the blue line for the Avalanche's upcoming two-game trip to Vegas. The 24-year-old played one game with the big club, logging 9:54 of ice time, before being sent to minors. He'll need to be activated from the taxi squad before playing another NHL game.

Avalanche's Dennis Gilbert: Sent to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert was dropped down to AHL Colorado on Monday, according to TSN's transactions list.

Gilbert has suited up in just one game for the Avalanche this season and will likely spend most of the season bouncing between AHL Colorado and the taxi squad. The 24-year-old blueliner scored a combined 10 points in 51 games between the AHL and NHL levels last season.

Avalanche's Dennis Gilbert: Promoted from taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert was promoted from the taxi squad Tuesday.

Gilbert is now eligible to play in Tuesday's game against the Kings. Either Conor Timmins or Dennis Gilbert is expected to slot into the bottom pairing Tuesday now that Ian Cole has been traded to Minnesota.

Avalanche's Dennis Gilbert: Cracks taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert has been added to Colorado's taxi squad, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.

Gilbert, who was acquired from the Blackhawks along with Brandon Saad during the offseason, has 22 games of NHL experience with his former team. He's the lone blueliner on the unit that also features forwards Shane Bowers, Martin Kaut, Logan O'Connor and Kiefer Sherwood, and goalie Hunter Miska.

Avalanche's Dennis Gilbert: Ready for 2020-21
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Jared Bednar announced Sunday that Gilbert (wrist) is healthy and ready for the start of the 2020-21 season, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

Gilbert was acquired from the Blackhawks this offseason as part of the Brandon Saad trade and underwent wrist surgery over the summer. The 24-year-old defenseman scored three points in 21 games last season and will use training camp to fight for a depth spot on the Avalanche blue line.

Avalanche's Dennis Gilbert: Packaged into Saad trade
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blackhawks traded Gilbert (wrist) and Brandon Saad to the Avalanche for Nikita Zadorov and Anton Lindholm on Saturday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Gilbert underwent wrist surgery over the summer, but he'll likely be ready to start the upcoming season. The 23-year-old defenseman is an intriguing prospect that plays a stay-at-home game, but the Blackhawks trusted him to play 21 NHL contests last season. The Avalanche have a strong foundation on the blue line, though, so they likely won't need his services unless injuries pop up.

Blackhawks' Dennis Gilbert: Dealing with wrist injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert is set to undergo wrist surgery and won't be available for the NHL's 24-team playoff, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Gilbert almost certainly wouldn't have gotten any ice time with the Blackhawks during postseason play anyway, so this development won't impact Chicago's chances against the Oilers in the qualifying round. The 23-year-old blueliner notched three points while racking up 38 PIM in 21 games with the big club this campaign.

Blackhawks' Dennis Gilbert: Sent down to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert was reassigned to AHL Rockford on Saturday.

Gilbert skated 13:36 of uneventful hockey in Friday's loss to the Red Wings and now finds himself being sent back down to the minor leagues after being recalled on an emergency basis. There's a chance Gilbert gets called right back up Sunday against St. Louis if Lucas Carlsson (concussion) isn't ready to go by then.

March 6, 2020 01:24 PM
Blackhawks' Dennis Gilbert: Recalled on emergency basis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blackhawks promoted Gilbert from AHL Rockford on Friday.

Lucas Carlsson exited Thursday's win over Edmonton after taking a puck to the head, so Gilbert will be on hand as an insurance policy for Friday's matchup with Detroit. The 23-year-old blueliner has tallied three points in 20 games with the big club this campaign.

Blackhawks' Dennis Gilbert: Slides back to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blackhawks reassigned Gilbert to AHL Rockford on Monday.

After claiming Nick Seeler off waivers from the Wild, the Blackhawks had eight healthy defensemen, so they will send down Gilbert to keep playing in the minors. Gilbert has three points through 20 NHL games this year.

Blackhawks' Dennis Gilbert: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blackhawks recalled Gilbert from AHL Rockford on Wednesday.

Chicago sent Gilbert to the minors Jan. 21 so he could continue to play during the NHL's All-Star break, but he was always expected to be back with the team ahead of Saturday's matchup with Arizona. The 23-year-old has picked up three points while posting a minus-8 rating in 20 appearances with the Blackhawks this season.
