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…...

Because it’s me and y’all know how I love digging up a number/stat and calling it a “fun fact” (sometimes they aren’t so fun), I decided to lead off my first postgame piece this season doing the same thing. So… Fun fact! Artturi Lehkonen has more games played in the postseason than regular season as a member of the Colorado…...

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…...

What a week. This has been a funny last few months for the DNVR Avalanche crew. We went from a dead sprint during the Stanley Cup Final and the week or two after, to a nice quiet offseason for about six weeks, then all at once last week we were back at full-go. It has been great to be back…...

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…...

There were a lot of star turns in the Colorado Avalanche’s quest for the Stanley Cup last year. Notably, Nazem Kadri stepped out of the shadows of his own career full of frustrations and into the brightest spotlight imaginable as he thrived in a way he never before had. That success paved the way for Kadri to secure the kind…...

On the Eve of the Colorado Avalanche officially opening their 2022-2023 campaign, we here at DNVR did our annual Training Camp Preview podcast. It’s a fun and exciting show to do every year because it really does (at least in my head) serve as the official start of a new hockey season. So much optimism, so much hope. Not just…...

The NHL offseason is essentially over and the Colorado Avalanche’s title defense will begin in the next week when rookies begin officially reporting for camp and the annual rookie tournament. Before getting to that, I want to look back on the offseason and see how it all went for the Avalanche. With a limit on resources, there was only so…...

Nathan MacKinnon agreed to a new contract with the Colorado Avalanche this morning that should keep him with the organization until the twilight of his career, if not all of it. The eight-year pact worth $100.8 million makes MacKinnon the highest-paid player in the NHL with an annual average value of $12.6M, beating the deal for Edmonton Oilers superstar Connor…...
