The Colorado Avalanche have placed Duncan Siemens on waivers.

The Avalanche selected Siemens with the 11th overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, but he's been a total flop since then. The 24-year-old has suited up in just four career NHL games. He'll likely never become a regular in the NHL.

Siemens had seven points and 100 penalty minutes in 73 AHL contests last season. He also had no points and two penalty minutes in three games with Colorado.

Duncan Siemens was returned to AHL San Antonio on Sunday.

He's seen just four NHL games of action in his career and is still searching for his first points. He has 13 points over his last two seasons down on the farm with the Rampage.
Apr 9 - 2:35 PM

Duncan Siemens has been summoned from the minors by Colorado.

Siemens played in one game with the Avalanche in 2014-15, but he didn't get any NHL action last season. He has earned six points and 88 penalty minutes in 69 matches with San Antonio of the AHL this campaign.

The Colorado Avalanche have assigned Duncan Siemens to AHL San Antonio.

The 23-year-old defender has just two goals and 17 points in three seasons down on the farm, so we wouldn't expect him to be a fantasy asset moving forward.

Duncan Siemens is looking to stick with the Avs out of training camp.

Siemens was the 11th overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, but he's been a bit of a disappointment. The 23-year-old has only suited up in one NHL game throughout his professional career. "I’m older and more mature. I’ve been around the pro scene for awhile. It doesn’t matter," Siemens said of his draft position. "It’s just a number. People will say what they want. I have a job to do every time I come to the rink. That’s my focus. It doesn’t matter where I was drafted or if I was PTO (professional tryout contract). It doesn’t matter. Everyone is getting the same look." Siemens is in a tough battle with Chris Bigras and Nikita Zadorov for a spot on the roster. He'll probably open the year in the minors again.

Duncan Siemens has signed a one-year, two-way contract with Colorado.

Siemens had seven points and 90 penalty minutes in 53 AHL contests in 2015-16. He can earn $874,125 in the NHL or $70,000 in the minors.

Duncan Siemens will get "every opportunity to try to make this team," according to Joe Sakic.

He made his NHL debut at the end of the 2015-16 season. The Avalanche are in the process of buying out Brad Stuart and Nick Holden was traded to the Rangers, so there are openings on the back end.

Duncan Siemens will make his NHL debut Saturday night against Chicago.

He was recalled Friday to take the place of the Brad Stuart, who will miss Saturday's contest due to a leg laceration. Siemens is not considered an offensive rearguard as his six points in 51 AHL games this season will attest. He will be paried with Nick Holden against the Hawks and has no fantasy value.

Duncan Siemens has been called up by the Colorado Avalanche.

Siemens has six points and 57 penalty minutes in 51 AHL contests this season. He was taken with the 11th overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, but he hasn't made his NHL debut yet. There's a good chance that will change on Saturday. Just keep in mind that while he might develop into a great defenseman, he probably won't have much value in standard fantasy leagues.

Patrick Roy is impressed with how Duncan Siemens is looking so far in camp.

Siemens is probably on the outside looking in for the Avs on defense, but he’s aiming to be one of the first call-ups. "Happy with the way he's been playing so far. We played him with (Erik Johnson) and wanted to see what Duncan can do, and give him a fair chance and it seems like right now he's taking advantage of it," Roy said. Siemens had four points in 46 games in Lake Erie of the AHL last season.

Duncan Siemens isn't expected to be on Colorado's roster for the start of the season, but he could be one of the first call ups from the minors.

There just isn't enough room for him on the Avalanche with nine defensemen on one-way contracts, in addition to Nick Holden and Stefan Elliott on two-way deals. He was limited to 46 games during the 2013-14 campaign with Lake Erie of the AHL because of a knee injury. Siemens is hoping to be able to make his NHL debut at some point in 2014-15.

Duncan Siemens has been cut from the Colorado Avalanche's training camp roster.

Siemens wasn't expected to make the Avalanche in 2013-14, but it is noteworthy that they decided not to use him in any of their preseason games. He was taken with the 11th overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. Colorado also cut Karl Stolley, Gabriel Beaupre, Markus Laudrisen, and Michael Sgarbossa. The Avalanche have 37 players remaining on their training camp roster.

Duncan Siemens is slated to begin the 2013-14 campaign with Colorado's AHL affiliate in Lake Erie.

He has one year left of junior eligibility, but appears to be ready to start his professional career. "We'll get a measuring stick of where he's at with this camp," said assistant GM Craig Billington. "He's done a good job with junior, and now he's at the next step. And that next step will be visible throughout camp and be a great test for him."
