  • Avalanche's Pavel Francouz: Done for season

    The Avalanche announced Sunday that Francouz (groin) will miss the remainder of the 2023-24 season. Francouz underwent surgery during the offseason, and his rehab will take longer than expected. The team also announced that he'll be returning to the Czech Republic to be with his family. The 33-year-old is slated to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. Francouz posted a 2.61 GAA and a .915 save percentage in 16 games in 2022-23.

  • Avalanche's Pavel Francouz: Out indefinitely

    General manager Chris MacFarland said Francouz (groin) is out indefinitely in a press conference Wednesday, Jesse Montano of Guerilla Sports reports.

  • Avalanche's Pavel Francouz: Moves to LTIR

    Francouz (groin) was placed on long-term injured reserve Tuesday, per CapFriendly. Francouz will be required to miss at least 10 games and 24 days of the 2023-24 season due to his placement on LTIR. Still, he could be out of action beyond that period after undergoing an adductor procedure during the offseason. The Avalanche currently have Ivan Prosvetov, who was claimed off waivers from Arizona on Monday, and Justus Annunen, who was recalled from the minors Tuesday, on the roster behind No. 1 netminder Alexandar Georgiev.

    Colorado head coach Jared Bednar confirmed Monday that Francouz (groin) is not expected to be ready for the regular season, Evan Rawal of Colorado Hockey Now reports. Francouz was recently added to injured reserve, so this development should not come as a surprise.

  • Avalanche's Pavel Francouz: Surfaces on IR

    Francouz (groin) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, per CBS. Francouz is still recovering from the adductor procedure he underwent following the Avalanche's first-round playoff loss last year, and it sounds like his status for Colorado's first game of the season Oct. 11 versus LA could be in doubt. If Francouz is forced to miss time to begin the year, look for Justus Annunen to step in as Alexandar Georgiev's backup.

    Francouz (lower body) stopped 19 of 23 shots in a 5-4 overtime win over Anaheim on Sunday. Francouz was in net for the first time since Feb. 7 because of the injury.

Francouz has an 8-7-1 record, 2.61 GAA and .915 save percentage in 16 contests this season.
