No official word on this, but with Adrian Dater reporting Erik Johnson is doubtful for tomorrow’s game with Edmonton, Colorado prospect Stefan Elliott may have been called up to the Avalanche.
Elliott has been playing this season with the Lake Erie Monsters and did not suit up tonight in their game against the Hamilton Bulldogs. In 18 games in Lake Erie this season Elliott has posted 2 goals and 7 assist with a +5 rating.
If Elliott is called up he may get a chance to play in Saturday’s tilt with the Oilers as it is doubtful the Avalanche would call him up just to scratch him since Lake Erie has another game Sunday night.
UPDATE: About 30 minutes Titan Sport 365, who represents Stefan, tweeted that Elliott has been called up. Congrats Stefan we cannot wait to see your debut!
