The Colorado Avalanche have recalled forward Borna Rendulic from the Lake Erie Monsters of the American Hockey League, the club announced via Twitter.
Rendulic will be in Denver on Wednesday to play against the Philadelphia Flyers at Pepsi Center.
The Avs had a shortened 20-man roster Monday at St. Louis with no healthy scratches. They used defenseman Nick Holden as a forward on the fourth line. He played a little more than eight minutes, with one shot on goal. The Blues won easily, 3-0.
Originally from Croatia, the 22-year-old Rendulic has played three games for the Avalanche this season. Signed as a free agent in May, he was originally recalled to Colorado in early December. In three NHL games, he has yet to record a point while averaging 6:48 of ice time.
