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.

The Avalanche have 37 players remaining on their training camp roster.

"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."

Duncan Siemens has gained eight pounds since he was selected with the 11th overall pick in the 2011 NHL entry draft.

"I've improved in all areas," Siemens said. "I tried to put on some body weight, trying to get a little bigger, and refining my puck skills and things like that. I tried to come into camp as prepared as I could, and I felt I did everything in my power that I could, so I'm confident." Siemens faces an uphill battle if he wants to make the Colorado Avalanche out of training camp, but showing up with a more filled out frame certainly helps his chances.

Duncan Siemens might get some playing time alongside his old defensive partner, Stefan Elliott, during training camp.

"He really helped my game a lot," Siemens said. "He's an excellent player and teammate. Some people were texting me after Colorado took me, saying it's going to be me and Elliott for life as D partners. I don't know, but we had some success together." Siemens will try to earn a roster spot out of training camp, but he has an uphill battle ahead of him. The Avalanche took him with the 11th overall pick in the 2011 NHL entry draft.

The Colorado Avalanche have selected Duncan Siemens with the 11th overall pick in the 2011 draft.

The Avalanche got this selection from the St. Louis Blues in the deal that sent Chris Stewart out of town. The fourth ranked defenseman in the 2011 draft is Duncan Siemens, one of the youngest draft-eligible players. Scouts are very pleased with the puck-moving and skating ability of the big 6-3 WHL standout. Siemens registered an impressive 43 points this year for Saskatoon, while amassing a staggering 121 penalty minutes along the way. The WHL standout offers teams a solid player at both ends of the rink. Although Duncan is most noted for his physicality, scouts have praised the youngster for his superlative skating ability. Colorado appears to to have landed a steady blueliner, who will help their club for years to come, but he'll likely need more time to develop before he can make the jump to the big league.
