Matt Hunwick has been placed on waivers.

Ryan Wilson (knee) is close to being able to return to the Avalanche lineup, but the team needed to make a move in preparation for activating him off of the injured reserve list.

Matt Hunwick will not be in the Colorado lineup Monday as he is out with a torso injury.

Hunwick will be replaced by Tyson Barrie on the Avs blueline. Hunwick has a string of zeroes on his stat sheet in seven games with the exception of a two minute minor and has no value in traditional fantasy pools while Barrie will play in only his fourth game of the young season. Consider Hunwick day-to-day.
