Maxime Talbot has played at center and on both wings with the Avalanche.
He's been playing on the ride side recently on the third line, but he prefers to play in the middle. "I feel like I'm more into the game at center," said Talbot. "It's more work, because you're skating more and you have more defensive responsibility. You usually have the middle of the ice, so you're telling yourself to get the puck and distribute it to the sides. Playing center, you feel like you touch the puck more. That's why I say it's a little more work, because you're always moving, whether it's in neutral-zone regroup or in D-zone." He has eight goals and 25 points in 78 games with Colorado and Philadelphia this season. Apr 10 - 12:03 PM

Maxime Talbot registered a pair of assists for the Avalanche in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime loss to Winnipeg.

Since joining Colorado earlier this season, Talbot has continued to score near his career pace, which works out to about 30 points per season so he's not worth owning in any fantasy formats. Nick Holden, Cody McLeod, Ryan O'Reilly and Gabriel Landeskog were the goal scorers for the Avalanche in the losing effort.

Maxime Talbot skipped Monday's practice because his fiancee went into labor.

Maxime Talbot had a goal and an assist in Colorado's 4-2 win over Minnesota.

That snapped Talbot's eight-game scoring drought. He's more of a defensive forward and that limits his fantasy value in standard leagues. The only major statistical area he's particularly noteworthy in is hits as he has 76 in 45 games this season.

Maxime Talbot notched a marker for the Avalanche in their 2-1 shootout loss to the Wild on Saturday night.

Talbot is a glue-guy/depth type of player with more value in real life and not worth considering in fantasy leagues. He has three goals and seven points in 31 games. Cory Sarich and John Mitchell had the helpers.

I'm confident I will keep adjusting better." He has no points, eight shots and a minus-2 rating in seven games with the Avalanche since being traded by Philadelphia.

Maxime Talbot has been shipped to Colorado for Steve Downie.

"Maxime is a veteran forward who has won a Stanley Cup and has a lot of NHL experience," said Avalanche Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Joe Sakic. "We're looking forward to him bringing that experience to our club." Talbot has two points and 11 hits in 11 games this season.

Maxime Talbot left Thursday's game temporarily after being knocked into the boards face first by the New York Rangers' Benoit Pouliot.

Talbot needed to undergo testing in an attempt to determine if he had a concussion, but fortunately the results were good. He needed some work on his nose, but that didn't keep him from returning to finish Philadelphia's 2-1 win. "When you feel you're fine to come back, you come back," Talbot said. As for Pouliot, he probably won't end up getting suspended. Even Flyers coach Craig Berube called it an "more of an accident than anything."

Maxime Talbot was the only Philadelphia Flyers player to score a goal in a 2-1 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes on Friday.

This was Talbot's first goal and point of the 2013-14 season. He seemed due, as he fired five SOG in his last game. He eclipsed 18 minutes of ice time the past two games, so he might become more fantasy relevant, especially with key injuries Friday. Zac Rinaldo and Sean Couturier collected the assists.
