Avalanche assign Elliott to AHL Lake Erie

The Colorado Avalanche on Wednesday assigned defenseman Stefan Elliott to the Lake Erie Monsters of the American Hockey League, bringing their training camp roster down to 27 players.

Elliott, 22, has played parts of the last two seasons in the NHL. He had a goal and four points in 18 games last season, following four goals and 13 points in 39 games as a rookie in 2011-12.

Elliott was a second-round pick of the Avalanche (No. 49) in the 2009 NHL Draft.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
