Colorado Avalanche Call-Up: Dennis Everberg
As mentioned before, Dennis Everberg wasn’t sent down until the last wave of cuts. It also seems fair to assume that it was a decision based on his recent shoulder injury. In his first game for the San Antonio Rampage — a 5-4 OT loss against the Texas Stars — Everberg had a goal and an assist and finished the game as a plus-1.
In training camp and the preseason, Everberg never looked like he was still in pain or anything like that. He just hadn’t played a game in a long time, while Rendulic played well in his preseason appearances. It was a decision for Rendulic, not against Everberg. However, as mentioned earlier, Rendulic isn’t playing to well in Colorado, while Everberg had a great start into the season.
If Roy decides to scratch or demote Rendulic, he could also decide to call up Everberg. The Swede is the perfect mix of physicality and skill and could be a great component for the Soderberg line. No moves should be expected until more than five games are played, but Everberg will be waiting for his shot.
