The Colorado Avalanche could reportedly move Tyson Barrie this summer.

Darren Dreger mentioned the possibility on TSN's "Insider Trading" segment. Dreger also mentioned that for Barrie to move, the Avalanche would need to get a quality defenseman in a separate trade for Matt Duchene. Barrie had seven goals and 31 points in 74 games this season, but he put up 49 and 53 points in his previous two seasons. The 25-year-old has three years remaining on his contract at $5.5 million. Barrie suffered a lacerated leg in a wrestling match with a teammate during the World Hockey Championship this spring, but he's expected to be fully healthy for the start of the regular season.

Tyson Barrie finished 2016-17 with a minus-34 rating.

That tied him with teammate Matt Duchene for the worst plus-minus in the league. "Yeah, you obviously see it," Barrie said. "It's frustrating. If you look at the stats sheet, I think our whole team is in the 20s somewhere .... We have to find ways to score goals. We have the lowest goals-for in the league this year, obviously by a large margin, the worst goals-for, goals-against ratio too, and that's what we're going to have to fix." He posted seven goals and 31 assists, while averaging 23:18 of ice time per match, in 2016-17.
