Craig Anderson Takes A Personal Leave

via Adrian Dater of All Things Avs,

Avalanche goalie Craig Anderson has returned to Denver tonight, for personal reasons. While he is away from the team, veteran John Grahame will be with the team and serve as backup to Peter Budaj.
Grahame, along with D-man Jonas Holos, were called up a little bit ago from Lake Erie.

Looks like it’s just going to be one of those years. I’m not going to speculate the reason why Anderson is taking a leave, even though I believe I have an idea. He’s not hurt and I believe this is only going to be a day-to-day thing. He wasn’t going to start tomorrow anyway. So let’s not make a big deal of it.

Even pro athletes deserve a little privacy. And like I said, I’m not positive what it is, so for now that’s the reason he’s gone – personal.

Grahame has been playing VERY well as of late. I’m not shocked he’s in the NHL right now.
