DENVER — The Colorado Avalanche didn't make a blockbuster trade on Monday before the NHL's trade deadline, but they did make two minor moves.
The Avs acquired forward Vladislav Namestnikov from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for a fourth-round pick in the 2021 NHL Draft and picked up goalie Michael Hutchinson from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for defenseman Calle Rosen.
Namestnikov, 27, has tallied 25 points (13g/12a) in 54 games with the Senators this season. Hutchinson, 29, has appeared in 15 games this season with the Maple Leafs. He posted a 4-9-1 record, 3.66 goals-against average and an .886 save percentage with Toronto.
Rosen appeared in just eight games for the Avalanche this season.
