I was getting ready to write this piece for the week, and was sitting there wracking my brain thinking “hmmm… what should the ‘theme’ be this week?”.

In what seemed like a most destined to happen from the start of free agency, the Colorado Avalanche reached an agreement with forward Evan Rodrigues on Monday morning. The 29-year-old, right-shooting Rodrigues gets a one-year deal from the Avs for $2M after choosing not to sign for basically all of the offseason. There were a number of teams reportedly vying…...

The Colorado Rapids beat the Vancouver Whitecaps at home. The Rapids are still far away from a playoff spot but are not out of it yet. Can today’s victory give them momentum and push them towards a playoff spot? Jonathan Lewis was a man possessed, being involved in all three Rapids goals. Jack Price finally returned to the pitch, and…

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…...

Testing… testing… 1, 2, 3. Is this thing on? Boy oh boy it has been a minute, but it is Labor Day weekend and you know what that means, your regularly-scheduled trash pickup will come a day late. It also means… We are back at it here on the DNVR Avalanche beat. It’s so funny, in past years when the…...

Is there anything new to really discuss when it comes to the Avs? No, not really. But that doesn’t stop me from taking some more of your questions for another edition of the Monday mailbag. From DB Hammer: Do you think Bowen Byram pushes Toews down to a “second pair” role? Do you think Mikko Rantanen has the two-way ability…...

Milan interview…

Once a week on Friday mornings, I jump onto an hour-long call with three of the biggest pains-in-the-asses I have ever known or met. They also happen to be my three dearest and oldest friends, the kind of folks that blended more into family than friendship eons ago. We still keep this appointment, come hell or high water, over and above the demands of work, family, and friends, as it means something to us. We have a common bond.

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…...

“Mini-Val”. That’s what Avs coach Jared Bednar was told he was getting when the Avs went out and acquired Artturi Lehkonen. Turns out, that proved to be about as good a comparison as you could make.
