In the latest edition of “Avalanche Storytime”, presented by the metro area’s best hockey bar, Bender’s Bar and Grill, Adrian Dater revisits the 2001 trade-deadline blockbuster that brought Rob Blake to the Avalanche – and saw fan favorite Adam Deadmarsh go to the Kings.

Adrian Dater has been covering the Avs since their inception. In 2015, he became the lead NHL national columnist with Bleacher Report, where he worked until 2017 before joining BSN Denver.
