Observations:

 

March 2013 - Stefan Elliott has been returned to Lake Erie once more after another short stint with the Colorado Avalanche but he failed to impress, again. Since being called up February 18, Elliott spent time in the press box seven times and while he did suit up for five games, he ended up being a minus-4 overall. Elliott has a booming shot and looks good at times; especially coming up through the neutral zone, but on other occasions he looks nervous with the puck but often looks afraid to make mistakes and his decision making is questionable sometimes. Elliott also failed to create any chemistry with any defensive partner and he failed to put a single point on the board. He still has incredible upside and his speed, agility and shot will surely get him a full time job in the NHL; however as of right now, it is back to Lake Erie for him with no call up to the big league until the next injury bug hits.

February 2013 - Stefan Elliott has been recalled from Lake Erie. Elliott has had an incredibly slow start this season with Lake Erie, but has shown some signs of life and some of the scoring ability which he is known for. December was his best month so far this season, finishing with 13 games played, three goals, eight points and a plus seven for the month. However, since then he has failed to put anymore points on the board, while his plus minus has seen improvement, he has hardly lit a fire in the AHL. Elliott does carry some concussion concerns, missing some time with a head injury already this year. Elliotts point totals and slow start are not indicative of his talent, he does has a booming shot, is a great skater and could benefit from the lack of scoring depth on the Avalanche blue line right now, not to mention the injuries the Avalanche are facing at this time. He could be worth a pick up and should get a more than fair look at the NHL level. Watch his minutes carefully, he could see plenty of power play and penalty kill time as well, at the AHL level Elliott is used in almost every situation. Andrew Ward

 

March 2012 – Elliott enjoyed four productive seasons in juniors with the Saskatoon Blades of the WHL. He is a top prospect at the blue line for the Avs with his great offensive instincts with above average play making skills, vision, and accurate shot. He will need to develop a little more of a physical presence and strength for the pro ranks. He is already enjoying a solid rookie pro season that finds him currently in Colorado’s top-six D rotation. Russ Bitely

 

Fantasy Outlook: A

 

Elliott is a gifted offensive D-man that has all the tools to produce solid numbers from the blue line.
