In a recent update by Frank Seravalli of Daily Faceoff, the Colorado Avalanche have received unfortunate news.

A Prominent Goalie Continues to Battle With Injury

According to Seravalli's latest report, Pavel Francouz is still grappling with an adductor injury that he sustained during the previous season, necessitating surgery during the offseason. This lingering injury limited Francouz to just 16 games during the 2022-23 season with the Avalanche. Sadly, this injury is just the latest in a series of setbacks in Colorado, as other key players like Gabriel Landeskog and Bowen Byram have also struggled with recurring injuries over the past two seasons.


"Avs appear to be examining options on the goalie market. Sounds like Pavel Francouz has not completely recovered from his off-season adductor surgery and there is concern he will miss some time." - Frank Seravelli

Seravalli also confirms that with Francouz sidelined, the Avalanche are actively exploring options in the trade market to secure a replacement. While specific player names have yet to be linked, it's apparent that Colorado is gearing up for a move in the near future.
