Playing for Canada at the World Hockey Championship is probably a nice treat for Tyson Barrie after that disaster of a season with the Colorado Avalanche, but now that’s been tarnished as well.
Hockey Canada and the Avalanche announced that Barrie will miss the remainder of the tournament thanks to a lower-body injury.
It’s a bummer, as he had been performing well. On the bright side, Colorado expects Barrie to be ready for the beginning of the 2017-18 season.
Actually, the Avalanche peg him for a return far sooner into the pre-season.
The real question, then, is will Barrie be back? Colorado expects “a lot of turnover” this summer, after all, and Barrie has his fair share of critics.
