1/16/2014 12:04:00 PM
Description: Colorado goalie Jean-Sebastien Gigure missed Tuesday's game against Chicago due to back spasms and is questionable for Thursday's game against New Jersey.
Insight: There has been no announced timetable for his return. After starting out 7-0-0 Giguere has lost his last four outings. Sami Aittokallio has been recalled to back up Semyon Varlamov who has won his last nine starts.

12/6/2013 7:04:00 PM
Description: Colorado goalie Jean-Sebastien Gigure will man the crease Friday at Calgary.
Insight: Giguere has yet to lose this season but he's also not getting many starts behind Semyon Varlamov. Friday will be his eighth of the year.
 
Hot11/8/2013 6:03:00 PM
Description: Colorado goalie Jean-Sebastien Gigure will start Friday against the Flames.
Insight: Giguere has started four games this season and is 4-0-0 with two shutouts, a 0.75 GAA and a .977 SV%. He's a must-start in fantasy leagues anytime he gets in net.
 
Hot11/2/2013 2:48:00 PM
Description: Colorado goalie Jean-Sebastien Gigure will draw the start Saturday against Montreal.
Insight: Two of his Giguere's three starts this season have resulted in shutouts and the veteran is 3-0-0 overall. Fantasy owners should grab him in case Semyon Varlamov's legal issues cost him playing time.
 
Hot10/21/2013 10:52:00 PM
Description: Colorado goalie Jean-Sebastien Gigure (34 saves) won for the third time in as many starts Monday versus Pittsburgh.
Insight: Two of his three starts this season have resulted in shutouts. The Avalanche are getting excellent play out of their netminders this season. Colorado's 1.50 GAA this season is second-best in the NHL.
 
10/19/2013 5:16:00 PM
Description: Avalanche backup goalie Jean-Sebastien Gigure will start Saturday at Buffalo.
Insight: Giguere had a shutout in his only start this season on Oct. 10 at Boston. Colorado has started off 6-1 and allowed just 10 goals in the first seven games. It looks like new Avs coach and Hall of Fame goaltender Patrick Roy has had a major influence on the team already.
 
10/10/2013 10:09:00 PM
Description: Avalanche backup goalie Jean-Sebastien Gigure blanked the Bruins with 39 saves Thursday night to help Colorado improve to 4-0-0.
Insight: The same team that had the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NHL Draft is suddenly unbeatable thanks to some impressive goaltending. Semyon Varlamov saved 96.7 percent of his shots in winning the first three games of the season.

Description: Jean-Sebastien Giguere will start in goal for the Avalanche on Thursday. SOURCE: Adrian Dater, Denver Post
Insight: The 36-year-old hasn't played a game since last April. The strong play of starter Semyon Varlamov (3-0, 1.00 GAA) has the potential to make Giguere a fantasy non-factor this season.
 
3/5/2013 6:36:00 PM
Description: Avalanche goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere is back with the team after attending his mother's funeral in Montreal and will start Tuesday against the Red Wings, according to the Denver Post.
Insight: Giguere (2-0-1, 2.87 GAA) only has four appearances and 209 minutes under his belt this season as Semyon Varlamov's backup.
 
2/18/2013 12:02:00 PM

2/16/2013 9:40:00 AM
Description: Avalanche goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere is expected to miss Saturday's game against Edmonton for personal reasons.
Insight: Giguere has made three appearances and is 2-0 with a 2.48 GAA and a .919 save percentage. He all posted strong numbers as Colorado's backup in 2011-12: 15 wins, 2.28 GAA and .919 SV% in 32 apperances.
 
2/14/2013 1:28:00 PM
Description: Avalanche goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere will draw the start Thursday against the Wild.
Insight: Giguere has only made two appearances and one start all season but he posted strong numbers as Colorado's backup in 2011-12: 15 wins, 2.28 GAA and .919 SV% in 32 apperances.
 
8/13/2012 10:18:00 PM
Description: Goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million contract extension with the Avalanche on Monday.
Insight: Giguere played fairly well for Colorado in 2011-12 (2.28 GAA, .919 save percentage) but he's unlikely to carry much weight in fantasy unless starting netminder Semyon Varlamov (2.59 GAA, .913 save percentage in 59 games last season) gets injured.
 
2/16/2011 10:08:00 PM
Description: J.S. Giguere left Wednesday's game against Buffalo after the first period with a lower-body injury. Yahoo Sports
Insight: The Leafs say that Giguere will be evaluated after the game. Giguere has had more than his share of groin injury concerns this season, so this injury could be another recurrence. James Reimer would see plenty of work if Giguere is sidelined, although word is that Giguere was not pulled from the game because of an impending trade.
 
1/20/2011 2:33:00 PM
Description: J.S. Giguere said that he would consider waiving his no-trade clause if the Leafs want to trade him. Toronto Star
Insight: Giguere, who will face his former team in Anaheim on Thursday, admitted that Leafs GM Brian Burke had not approached him about waiving his NTC. The Leafs will have a difficult time trading the veteran goalie, who has battled his share of injuries the past few seasons and comes with an expensive contract from his days in Anaheim.
 
1/5/2011 2:43:00 PM
Description: J.S. Giguere is expected to miss another week with a groin injury. AM 640
Insight: The groin injury has already sidelined Giguere three different times this season, so it doesn't seem to be going away. Expect the goaltending duties to continue to be split by Jonas Gustavsson and James Reimer while Jiggy is sidelined.
