Puck Drop Preview - May 1

May 1, 2021

The Colorado Eagles will look to put an end to the two-game losing streak Saturday against the Ontario Reign. 

Goaltender Jonas Johansson will get the start in net after being reassigned from the Colorado Avalanche earlier today. Johansson was acquired by the Avalanche on March 21st, 2021 in exchange for a sixth-round pick in the 2021 NHL Draft. He has appeared in six games with the Avalanche this season going 5-3-0-1 in five NHL starts, posting a 2.27 goals-against-average and a .910 save percentage. 

Defenseman Dan Renouf was recalled to the Avalanche’s taxi squad today along with goaltenders Adam Werner and Hunter Miska. 

Tonight is the fifth of six meetings between the Eagles and Reign this season. Colorado is 2-2-0 against Ontario so far. The Eagles will travel to California to conclude the series on May 9th. 

The Ontario Reign scored four unanswered goals to erase a 1-0 deficit and defeat the Colorado Eagles, 4-1 on Friday. Eagles defenseman Ian Scheid scored Colorado’s lone goal in the game, as the Eagles were held without a power-play goal for just the second time in the last 15 contests. Ontario goalie Matthew Villalta earned the win in net, stopping 37 of the 38 shots he faced.
