The fact that Colorado made a move to add some goaltending depth isn’t particularly surprising with Semyon Varlamov out for the season. Cannata, who has been assigned to AHL San Antonio, will likely replace Jeremy Smith, who is currently up with the Avalanche. The 27 year old netminder has played in 22 games with Hershey of the AHL this season, posting an 11-5-1 record with a 3.22 GAA and a .876 SV%. He will be an unrestricted free agent in July and has a league minimum cap hit.
As for Corbett, he has played in 23 games with San Antonio this season, collecting two goals and eight assists. He’s in the final year of his entry level contract with a cap hit of $625K.
