Inch by inch, preseason began to resemble the opening night lineup. It’s been an interesting experiment with decision-guys getting extended looks. According to Jared Bednar, there are three roster spots up for grabs come opening night. Bednar said he will make reassignments sometime Saturday or Sunday. This is understandably contingent on the health of Darren Helm. Helm’s injury status is…...

After a quick morning skate at Family Sports Center, Colorado boarded a fast flight to Las Vegas. Much of the same squad from last night’s Minnesota Wild game made the trip, which solidified the preseason spirit. Jared Bednar confirmed the first round of reassignments would happen today possibly before and after the game. Many of the NHL regulars stayed at…...

Period 1 Right off the first shift, a great passing play from Alex Newhook to Martin Kaut created a valuable rebound opportunity and Newhook arrived at the netfront to tap it in. It was a promising opening sequence for a unique top-line combination of Charles Hudon, Newhook and Kaut. Hudon is an offseason free agency pick-up Colorado added possibly with…...

Pre-season has started and we got two hockey games out of the deal. The split squad took a full crew on the road to play the Minnesota Wild. It was split more evenly than the groups from training camp with Alex Galchenyuk, Alex Newhook, and Ben Meyers making the trip. https://twitter.com/Avalanche/status/1574127767867731969 This road team was filled with more AHL-regulars and…...

His ties to Colorado began at a distance during a time of disarray. Jared Bednar’s first season behind the bench was marred by a 48-point season. That summer, the Ottawa Senators claimed Shane Bowers as their 28th pick in the first round. The scouting reports touted his high-end skating ability and speed. He arrived on the doorsteps of Boston University…...

“Most teams have a long summer,” said defenseman Devon Toews. “[We had a] short, perfect summer. We’re super excited to have this team back.” It was an apt way to tie off the offseason after a short time away. Players have been taking optional skates for weeks, but today marked the beginning of the Colorado Avalanche’s 2022 training camp. Injury…...

Yesterday the rookies took to the ice at Family Sports Center for practice before heading to San Joe for the tournament. It was a nice way to set the scene before their first game against LA set to be streamed online at 3 PM MST. The Ontario Reign are a familiar foe of the Colorado Eagles in the Pacific Division,…...

The re-scheduled 2022 World Junior Ice Hockey Championship concluded with a gold medal 3-2 OT win for Team Canada over Team Finland. It was an unsurprising result for Canada after a dominant showing throughout the tournament complete with a lethal high-octane offense led by Anaheim Ducks prospect Mason McTavish (8 Goals, 9 Assists) and strong goaltending. Hockey in August offered…...

It begins with a willingness to find the open net. It’s the markings of a goalscorer and reveals a drive fed only by hard work and perseverance. It can’t really be taught and is rewarded by instinct and ultimately effort. On July 27th Cam Wright – a 6’1″ right-shot winger and Ontario native – signed his first professional contract: an…...

On August 17th, the Avs announced that 23-year-old forward Shane Bowers has re-signed a 1-year, 2-way contract for the 2023 season. It comes with little surprise after Colorado extended the former first round pick a qualifying offer in July. https://twitter.com/Avalanche/status/1560093517220909056 He was the last of the remaining RFA’s to accept his offer after Mikhail Maltsev re-signed on July 27th to…...

family sports center colorado avalanche prospects at development camp

Day 2 of Avalanche development camp is complete. With just two picks in the 2022 draft, 193rd overall defenseman Chris Romaine and 225th overall goaltender Ivan Zhigalov, this camp is made up of an interesting blend of recent picks, rising ECHL hopefuls, and undrafted invitees. Notably among them is defensive prospect and NCAA National Champion Sean Behrens. He’ll be completing…...

The market to sign free agents begins on Wednesday, but we earned a glimpse into it following the NHL Draft. Many of us have not known peace since then as we watched other UFAs get locked up by their respective teams, and Colorado fans have anxiously awaited the status of 27-year-old UFA Valeri Nichushkin. Discussions were reportedly positive throughout, but…...

The market to sign free agents in 2022 begins on July 13th, but UFA’s can begin talking with teams the day after the NHL Entry Draft which starts next week. Bits of championship confetti will still be hiding in sidewalk cracks throughout downtown Denver by then, but Colorado will still be players in free agency. With roster construction that was…...

We knew we might be on borrowed time with him. For some, it’s a welcome relief to learn Darcy Kuemper will be a UFA this summer. With the offseason set to begin sometime in the next five days, the conversation that was once reserved for a later date is fast approaching. I’m not here to have that conversation just yet.…...

We remember the outcome of Game 3, but today was a new day for the Colorado Avalanche. They hosted an optional skate in Tampa Bay ahead of Game 4. Nathan MacKinnon was first on the ice with others trickling in – Landeskog, Rantanen, Compher, and more as well as some of the extras. Notably present was Nazem Kadri, stickhandling and…...

Darcy Kuemper seen in net during Game 1 of the SCF

Today the Avalanche hosted a standard practice.  Nazem Kadri skated again, with a stick, just before. Andrew Cogliano was a full participant and reportedly looked like a viable option for Game 2 tomorrow. Gabriel Landeskog was briefly in attendance but presumably took a maintenance day alongside Andre Burakovsky – both have routinely taken maintenance days, so it is not a…...
