Big debut for Canucks' Tryamkin against Avalanche

6-foot-7 defenseman to play first NHL game; Colorado in wild-card chase

by Kevin Woodley / NHL.com Correspondent

AVALANCHE (35-31-4) at CANUCKS (27-29-12)

TV: 10 p.m. ET; ALT, SNP. NHL.TV

VANCOUVER - Russian defenseman Nikita Tryamkin will make his NHL debut for the Vancouver Canucks against the Colorado Avalanche on Wednesday.

Tryamkin, 6-foot-7 and 228 pounds, signed with the Canucks last week after his season in the Kontinental Hockey League ended and he arrived in Vancouver last Thursday. There was already a chance the 21-year-old was going to play against Colorado, but injuries to defensemen Luca Sbisa, Yannick Weber and Alex Biega on Monday left no doubt about Tryamkin's debut.
