It was a surprise to many when Tyson Barrie was demoted to Lake Erie a couple of weeks ago. He had seemingly played well enough with the Avalanche to stick around, but when Erik Johnson and Ryan Wilson returned from injuries, the Avs chose to send Barrie back down. Barrie is back. With Wilson re-injuring an ankle that will put him out indefinitely and Stefan Elliott not showing enough in his latest stint with the Avs, Barrie was recalled Monday and could play Wednesday night against the Calgary Flames.
