In the first game of the Gold Pan series, the No. 5 University of Denver Pioneers hosted Colorado College at Ball Arena for the first time. The momentous affair drew 17,952 in attendance. After getting swept on the road against St. Cloud State University last weekend, Denver hoped to get back in the win column. In net for Denver was…

Morning skate was a buzz with news of the new arrival, Matt Nieto. Nieto was acquired yesterday in a trade that exchanged Jacob MacDonald and Martin Kaut for Nieto and defensive prospect, Ryan Merkley. Additionally, Denis Malgin rejoined the Avs lineup after nursing an upper-body injury, and it was announced that Val Nichushkin would miss tonight’s game with an upper-body…

Colorado was off to the races. A three-game win streak felt like some of the best hockey we’ve seen strung together in a long time. The Avs were looking to secure another win ahead of what is sure to be a challenging matchup against the Seattle Kraken tomorrow night. After disappointing outings wherein the Avs lost to Vancouver twice -…

News out of morning skate revealed a troubling update: Cale Makar would miss tonight’s game with an undisclosed injury. He made the trip, and Bednar described the injury as being day-to-day. As a result, Colorado returned to their 11-7 structure with a top pairing of Devon Toews and Erik Johnson. Defenseman Brad Hunt, who was named to the AHL’s All-Star…

After the disappointment of the loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on the road, Colorado had more than just points to worry about. The despondency shown in that game revealed a defeated Avalanche team that Jared Bednar described as “down.” Tonight they were in search of a victory just as much as they were in search of themselves. The Ottawa Senators…

The Denver Pioneers are on the hunt for their tenth national championship – the most of any college program. They’re currently tied at nine with the University of Michigan. After some big-name departures last season: Bobby Brink, Carter Savoie, captain Cole Guttman, and more – some may have entered this season with skepticism. The Pioneers haven’t had many stumbles. They…

After the disappointment of Tuesday’s failed comeback effort, Colorado looked to right the course on the road against a stunted Chicago team. The Blackhawks hadn’t played since Sunday and would have fresh legs under them. Even though they won two of their last games, Chicago has been on a crash course to finesse the draft lottery with a 10-25-4 record…

One step forward and two steps back. Last contest, Colorado lost both Val Nichushkin and Martin Kaut to injury. The stress of holiday travel even affects NHL teams. Staffing issues delayed the charter flight and the Avs did not touch down in Arizona until hours before puck drop. The team skated before they flew out. This morning, Jared Bednar got…

In his first AHL season, Martin Kaut played on a line with Andrew Agozzino and 22-year-old rookie, Logan O’Connor. Their paths first crossed here and though their journeys have been very different, in the end it always comes back to what O’Connor represents. Let’s start from the beginning. Kaut’s path to the NHL was never conventional, but nothing was going…

Morning skate yielded a couple of updates that would influence tonight’s lineup: Kurtis MacDermid would play, Val Nichushkin – though absent – would also play, Jacob MacDonald skated as a forward, and Martin Kaut was recalled by the Colorado Avalanche. As a result, you knew a classic blended Jared Bednar game was on tap. Additionally, a piece of Colorado’s depth…

It was a short, perfect summer. The Colorado Avalanche hoisted the Stanley Cup and before they knew it, they were staring down the start of a new season. After a career year, the departure of Nazem Kadri promised an 87-point-sized loss that was sure to be felt. The loss of Kadri’s production and the search for a second-line centerman prompted…...

As injury news continues to build up, Colorado looked to pull off another challenging feat in a Saturday night matchup against the visiting Carolina Hurricanes. The latest injury news is an expected six-week recovery for Shane Bowers. The 23-year-old forward sustained an upper-body injury in his NHL debut in Thursday’s contest. Colorado pulled out a solid 5-3 win over Nashville…
