  • Avalanche's Justus Annunen: Recalled from AHL

    Annunen was recalled from AHL Colorado on Thursday, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    The Avalanche are playing a pair of games in Finland and were allowed to recall an emergency goaltender in case of injury, so Annunen has joined the team overseas. The native of Finland was 3-2-0 with a 3.22 GAA and an .892 save percentage with AHL Colorado before his recall.

  • Avalanche's Justus Annunen: Joins big club

    Annunen was recalled from AHL Colorado on Tuesday, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    AHL Colorado was recently knocked out of the Calder Cup playoffs, so Annunen will likely remain with the Avalanche for the rest of their postseason run. Annunen went 1-0-1 while posting a 4.33 GAA and an .863 save percentage through two top-level appearances during the regular season.

  • Avalanche's Justus Annunen: Sent down again

    Annunen was reassigned to AHL Colorado on Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

    The Avalanche continue to juggle Annunen back and forth to the AHL. He's no more than their No. 3 goalie, so he's not expected to be a factor during their second-round playoff series versus the Blues.

  • Avalanche's Justus Annunen: Rises to NHL roster

    Annunen was called up from AHL Colorado on Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

  • Avalanche's Justus Annunen: Back to AHL

    Annunen was reassigned to AHL Colorado on Tuesday, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports.

    Annunen dressed as the backup for Monday's Game 4 win behind Pavel Francouz. If Darcy Kuemper (eye) needs more time to heal when the next round starts, the 22-year-old could serve as the backup again.

  • Avalanche's Justus Annunen: Called up from AHL

    Annunen was recalled from AHL Colorado on Sunday.

    Darcy Kuemper left Saturday's Game 3 after getting hit near the eye with a stick. The starting goalie is expected to be alright, but Colorado may opt to rest him in Monday's Game 4, especially since the Avs hold a commanding 3-0 series lead over Nashville. If Kuemper doesn't dress, Annunen would suit up as the backup behind Pavel Francouz.

  • Avalanche's Justus Annunen: Returns to minor-league affiliate

    Annunen was reassigned to AHL Colorado on Saturday, per CapFriendly.

  • Avalanche's Justus Annunen: Up from AHL Colorado

    Annunen was called up from AHL Colorado on Thursday.

    Annunen's presence on the active roster suggests Darcy Kuemper will remain in Colorado for rest while the Avalanche visit the Wild on Friday. The 22-year-old Annunen has allowed seven goals on 51 shots across two NHL appearances this season, though he'll likely back up Pavel Francouz in the regular-season finale.

  • Avalanche's Justus Annunen: Sent to minors

    Annunen was reassigned to AHL Colorado on Sunday.

    With Pavel Francouz (head) expected to be available for Sunday's tilt with Winnipeg, Annunen won't be needed at the NHL level. The 22-year-old has posted a 3.01 GAA and an .893 save percentage through 48 AHL games this season.

  • Avalanche's Justus Annunen: Brought up to big club

    Annunen was promoted from AHL Colorado on Saturday.

  • Avalanche's Justus Annunen: Returned to AHL affiliate

    Annunen was reassigned to AHL Colorado on Wednesday.

    Darcy Kuemper (upper body) is set to return to action Wednesday against the Rangers, so the Avalanche are no longer in need of Annunen's services in net. Annunen will likely remain in the minors as long as Darcy Kuemper and Jonas Johansson are healthy.

  • Avalanche's Justus Annunen: Nabs first NHL win

    Annunen made 27 saves in Monday's 7-5 win over the Flyers.

    The Avs gave their rookie netminder a 4-1 lead before the first period was over, and while Annunen wasn't exactly sharp the rest of the way, he prevented the Flyers from ever getting level. The win was his first in the NHL, but the 21-year-old will likely return to AHL Colorado once Darcy Kuemper (upper body) is deemed ready to play.

  • Avalanche's Justus Annunen: Tending twine Monday

    Annunen will defend the cage on the road against the Flyers on Monday, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Annunen faced just 19 shots in his NHL debut Saturday, which came in a relief appearance. While the Finnish netminder will get the nod Monday, he figures to be sent back down to AHL Colorado once Darcy Kuemper (upper body) is cleared to play. As such, Annunen shouldn't be expected to offer much in the way of fantasy value the rest of the season.

  • Avalanche's Justus Annunen: Relieves shaky starter

    Annunen stopped 17 of 18 shots in regulation and allowed an overtime goal on the 19th shot in Saturday's 6-5 loss to Ottawa.

    Annunen made his NHL debut, filling in for the shaky Jonas Johansson early in the second period. The regulation goal came on an Ottawa power play, and Brady Tkachuk beat him cleanly during the extra period. Colorado head coach Jared Bednar said primary goalie Darcy Kuemper (upper body) remains day-to-day, per Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now, leaving unknown which goalie will start Monday in Philadelphia. A wrinkle for the decision is Pavel Francouz (ankle), who backstopped AHL Colorado to a 4-0 win Saturday. All four goalies are on the radar for Monday.

  • Avalanche's Justus Annunen: Brought up Wednesday

    Annunen was recalled from AHL Colorado on Wednesday.

    Annunen was called up after Darcy Kuemper (upper body) was a late scratch. With the Avalanche playing the second half of a back-to-back Thursday versus the Canadiens, Annunen could be a candidate to start that contest, which would be his NHL debut.
