Colorado Avalanche Call Up Defenseman

The Colorado Avalanche have called up Andreas Englund to their NHL roster. 

Englund has not played in an NHL game since the 2019-20 season, so this is big news for the 6-foot-3 defenseman. Now, he will be hoping to get into game action and make a good first impression with the Avalanche from here.

If utilized during this call-up, Englund will provide the Avalanche with more grit. He's an old-fashioned, defensive defenseman who never shies away from the physical side of the game. The proof is in his stats with the Colorado Eagles this season. In 12 games on the year, he has three points to go along with a whopping 38 penalty minutes. 

Nevertheless, let's see how Englund performs with the Avs from here.
