An injury? A trade? I'll leave that speculation up to you. While there isn't an official source reporting the recall, Lake Erie Monsters team mate Brad Malone is breaking the news, or is he playing a joke on a buddy? I'll leave it to you to decide:
The Monsters are currently in Texas, where they will take on the Houston Aeros tonight. Tyson Barrie currently leads the team in scoring with 29 points in 46 games.
A second source of the rumored recall, from the Monsters beat reporter for CSFRadio, also comes from Twitter:
Breaking News: Monsters D Tyson Barrie has been recalled by the Colorado Avalanche.
UPDATE: Mike Chambers of the Denver Post is now confirming that Barrie has been recalled and that Stefan Elliott has been reassigned.
