David van der Gulik recalled by Avs as injuries continue to mount

The injury bug has been hitting the Colorado Avalanche hard as of late. The team called in a reinforcement Tuesday, recalling forward David van der Gulik from the Lake Erie Monsters,

Van der Gulik has scored six goals in 14 games with the Monsters this season, and registered 14 penalty minutes. He has played in a total 40 games for the Avalanche since joining the organization in 2010, registering 11 points (two goals and nine assists).

The promotion comes after a loss to the Calgary Flames Monday that saw both Ryan O’Reilly and Nathan MacKinnon need X-rays following its’ conclusion. Neither practiced on Tuesday. MacKinnon is probable for Wednesday’s contest against the Ottawa Senators; while O’Reilly is considered day-to-day.

Also day-to-day is defenseman Nate Guenin, who injured his foot blocking a shot (a category in which he leads the Avs with 86) in a win over the San Jose Sharks on Saturday.

Defenseman Ryan Wilson is also out, having been sent down to Lake Erie on a 14-day conditioning assignment.

P.A. Parenteau is currently on injured reserve after spraining his MCL on Dec. 29.

Also on injured reserve is forward Alex Tanguay. The 34-year-old Tanguay has not played since injuring his knee on Nov. 2. It was feared that he may need season-ending surgery on his hip (which he hurt whilst rehabbing his knee); but he began skating on Monday and reports seem encouraging.
