In a recent update from TSN's Chris Johnston, it has been revealed that the Colorado Avalanche are taking a noteworthy step with forward Chris Wagner. The 32-year-old, who endured a ruptured Achilles before the season commenced, is now placed on waivers. This move strongly indicates his recovery and readiness for assignment to the AHL.

Wagner, a recent addition to the Avalanche after five years with the Boston Bruins, has a robust NHL history. From 2016-21, he was a consistent presence in 360 games, with his standout performance in 2018-19 boasting 12 goals and seven assists. However, injuries have limited his recent NHL appearances to just two games since 2021.

As Wagner heads to waivers, the anticipation builds regarding his potential assignment to Colorado's AHL affiliate, the Colorado Eagles. While the likelihood of clearing waivers seems high, given his recent injury, the dynamic nature of the NHL landscape introduces an element of uncertainty. With teams grappling with injuries, Wagner's experience could attract interest, adding an intriguing layer to the unfolding scenario. Stay tuned for further developments as the fate of Chris Wagner takes shape in the coming days.
