Development Camp wrapped up Friday with a rewarding hike up the Incline in Manitou Springs. After a brief 4 on 4 scrimmage the night before, the whole crew got up bright and early to make the trek down to Colorado Springs for the team building activities. This concluded the camp and prospects will return to their additional summer obligations 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…...

Part of the wider appeal of free agency across all sports is finding out which players you’ve definitely heard of have decided to come to play for the team you root for/cover/occasionally watch and how they’ll fit into the conversation. Free agency is uniquely fascinating because not all teams have the same goal. Some teams are in the heart of…...

Looking as dapper as you’ll ever see a player look in an off-season zoom call, Alexandar Georgiev met with the local media on Tuesday for the first time since being acquired by the team just five days prior. The Bulgarian-born netminder, who has since signed a three-year, $10.2 million contract, could not hide his excitement about the move. “I’ve been…...

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…...

It’s been two weeks since the Colorado Avalanche won the Stanley Cup. There have already been significant changes to the group that doesn’t seem interested in stopping the celebration anytime soon. There has been some big news sprinkled in with some smaller bits of news so let’s catch up on everything that’s happened in the last couple of weeks. First,…...

… what a beautiful sight. Not the Avs winning it all. Not that it’s Colorado faithful. Those are admittedly wonderful. But more that that many people can be that happy in each other’s presence any more. Stunning stuff. It can make for groups that can move mountains. Kind of like an Avalanche.

Normally, this is the kind of piece I would write a couple of weeks after Colorado’s season ended, whenever that may be. Because the Avs dared to win the Stanley Cup, however, I have to get to it a touch earlier than usual. You might have heard the Avalanche have a lot of pending free agents, opening the door for…...

Well, Joe Sakic and Co. are at it again with the goaltending market. Instead of waiting it out and being forced into paying a premium for the best remaining option, the Sakic got out ahead of the game this year and made a big-time bet in trading two third-round picks (this year and next) and this year’s fifth-round pick to…...

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…...

Watching Gabe Landeskog this week has been a fun ride. From throwing out the first pitch at a Colorado Rockies game to working the register at a local Raising Canes, Landeskog is the radiant face of joy. By the time you read this, he’s probably already had plenty to say during the Avalanche parade. From where I’m sitting, this feels…...

The Colorado Avalanche are the 2022 Stanley Cup Champions.  Let me type that again, just so that there’s no confusion… The Colorado Avalanche are the 2022 Stanley Cup Champions! The Avalanche defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-1 on Monday in a nail-biting thriller at Amalie Arena to clinch the franchise’s third Stanley Cup and its first since 2001.  You all…...

The journey is over. The Colorado Avalanche won the Stanley Cup last night with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning. The win gave the Avalanche a 4-2 series victory over the two-time defending champion Lightning and ended their big for the NHL’s first “three-peat” since the 1980s New York Islanders won four in a row. It wasn’t…...

Bowen Byram – A+ The best defender on the team in the elimination game by a mile. Makar didn’t have his best night, so Byram decided to turn into Makar. These playoffs were a coming-out party for Bo, and he showed up on the biggest stage. He’s a champ. Andrew Cogliano – A Fantastic pickup. Another great night on the…...
