Avalanche defenseman Erik Johnson missed Colorado's most recent game due to a groin injury. If the report is true, Elliott will be the first player called up from the Monsters this season. In 18 games with the Lake Erie Monsters, Elliott has two goals and seven assists. Elliott did not suit up in Lake Erie's 5-1 win over the Hamilton Bulldogs on Friday, leading to the speculation that he had been recalled by the Avalanche.
