Bowen Byram will be out indefinitely as he has voluntarily removed himself from the roster due to personal issues.
One can only speculate at this point as there has been no official announcement as to why he left, but it's fair to assume that this has something to do with his lingering head issues. Byram has suffered from these problems on-and-off and it looks like he's making the decision that is best for his health. The Avalanche will surely miss their 2019 1st round pick but he's only 20 years old and head injuries need to be taken very seriously. We wish him the best moving forward and hope to see him on the ice again, healthy. He's registered five goals and 11 points through 18 games this season.
