Colorado Avalanche Call-Ups: Honorable Mentions

Zach Redmond:

Zach Redmond couldn’t convince Roy enough to be one of the eight NHL forwards. Or, maybe he just has the cheapest contract which makes it easy to send him down from a business standpoint. If a defenseman gets sent down to San Antonio, Redmond will likely be one of the first call-up options. Other options would include Duncan Siemens and Chris Bigras.

Joey Hishon:

As I said in a previous post, Joey Hishon may not be in a situation to succeed in Colorado. However, there probably aren’t many who don’t wish him NHL success, especially after his concussion history. Whether he makes it or not is — to a large extend — in Roy’s hands. It will likely be a rough season, though, as Hishon needs to get past a bunch of other Rampage forwards, before even being considered as a call-up.
