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.
Oct 30 - 6:43 PM

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 will make his Colorado debut Wednesday night.

He will paired with Nick Holden against Carolina. Brad Stuart will be scratched to make room for him.
Oct 21 - 1:13 PM

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.

According to the Denver Post, don't be surprised if Brandon Gormley plays on Colorado's second pairing.

Gormley should be paired with Tyson Barrie to open the season, while Francois Beauchemin and Erik Johnson will make up the first duo. Gormley was acquired from Arizona in September. The 23-year-old was the 13th overall pick in the 2010 NHL Draft but he hasn't been able to crack an NHL roster on a consistent basis. Defensemen usually take longer to develop than forwards, so it's entirely possible that Gormley could still turn out to be an impact blueliner in the NHL.

Colorado has acquired Brandon Gormley from Arizona in exchange for Stefan Elliott.

He will try to earn a spot with the Avalanche at training camp, but it will be tough for him to crack the roster. Gormley has 32 games of NHL experience spread over the past two seasons. He would have to clear waivers to be sent down.
Sep 10 - 12:03 PM

Brandon Gormley has accepted his one-year, two-way qualifying offer with the Arizona Coyotes.

Gormley had two goals and four points in 27 games with Arizona in 2014-15. At the age of 23, he still has the potential to develop into a defenseman that puts up sufficient offensive numbers to make him worth owning in standard leagues. However, at this point we recommend taking a wait-and-see approach with him rather than take a chance on drafting him before training camp.
Jul 31 - 10:16 AM

Defenseman Brandon Gormley has been reassigned by the Arizona Coyotes to the AHL's Portland Pirates.

Through 27 games with Arizona, Gormley had four points.

Brandon Gormley will be scratched against the San Jose Sharks on Saturday night.

Through 27 games this season, Gormley has produced four points, 10 PIMs, 26 hits, and 32 blocks from the Arizona blue line. Unfortunately, that's not enough to recommend for your playoff fantasy roster.
Apr 4 - 9:00 PM

Brandon Gormley and Tye McGinn will be scratched against the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night.

Neither player offers much fantasy value, unfortunately. Gormley has produced just four points, 24 hits, and 31 blocks over 25 games this season. And McGinn has six points and 59 PIMs over 43 games with the Sharks and Coyotes.

Brandon Gormley will be back in the Coyotes lineup Monday versus the Kings.

Gormley came off the ice before Andrew Campbell in practice Monday morning, meaning he will dress for the game versus the Kings. Gormley has played in just one game in the month of March and has two goals and one assist in 22 games overall this season. He carries no fantasy value.
