Brandon Gormley will see only his fourth game of season Tuesday night against Calgary.

Through three games, Gormley no points and three blocks. Perhaps suggesting just while he can't seem to stay in the lineup.

Brandon Gormley will play in place of Nate Guenin against Carolina on Friday.

Neither Gormley nor Guenin have produced a point, or anything else for that matter. So you should look elsewhere for depth support.

Brandon Gormley and Brad Stuart will not play in Thursday's game against the Lightning.

With just four games between Gormley and Stuart and nary a noteworthy stat between them, it's easier to simply suggest you look for depth elsewhere as Coach Roy clearly doesn't believe in either defender at the moment.

Brandon Gormley will be a healthy scratch once again Tuesday night against the Panthers.

Gormley has only seen two games thus far, indicating that Coach Roy simply doesn't believe he belongs in the lineup. That may change in the future, but considering he's never been a fantasy stud, you should look elsewhere for depth.

Brandon Gormley still hasn't dressed in a game for the Avalanche.

"I want to see Gormley eventually," coach Patrick Roy said. "He's been practicing well. Eventually we'll need to have a look at him." He may draw into the lineup for Nate Guenin or Brad Stuart when he gets his opportunity.

Brandon Gormley and Borna Rendulic will be healthy scratches on Sunday.

Gormley has yet to dress for the Avalanche this season, which makes it pretty tough to build up fantasy value let alone real life hockey value. Rendulic meanwhile has been generally ineffective through his first three games, and Coach Roy may be sending a message.

Brandon Gormley will spend Thursday's opener in the press box.

Gormley had two goals and four points in 27 contests with Arizona last season. The Avalanche acquired him from Arizona in exchange for Stefan Elliott in the hopes that the change of scenery would do him some good. Obviously this isn't a positive early indicator.
