The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced Tuesday that the team has recalled forward Philippe Dupuis from the Lake Erie Monsters of the American Hockey League. He will be available for tonight’s game in Nashville against the Predators (6:00 p.m. MT, Altitude).
Dupuis, 23, was recalled by the Avalanche on Dec. 11 and appeared in three games for Colorado (no points) before being reassigned to Lake Erie on Dec. 16. He made his NHL debut on Dec. 12 vs. Chicago.
The Laval, Quebec native has recorded 15 points (5g/10a) and a +7 plus/minus rating in 29 games with the Monsters this season. He is tied for first on the club in plus/minus and ranks third in both assists and points (tied).
Columbus’ fifth choice (104th overall) in the 2003 Entry Draft, Dupuis was acquired by the Avalanche along with Darcy Campbell in exchange for Mark Rycroft on Jan. 22, 2008.
In a related move, the Avalanche today placed defenseman Adam Foote on the Injured Reserve list (retroactive to Jan. 4) due to a triceps injury.
The Avalanche had previously recalled defenseman Kyle Cumiskey from Lake Erie on Monday.
Cumiskey currently stands second among Monsters scorers with 16 points (4g/12a) in 26 games. It’s his third recall of the season, having been called up on November 6 and again on November 25. He’s appeared in three games with the Avalanche this season.
