On March 4th of last year, 20-year-old Colorado Avalanche prospect Jean-Luc Foudy was scratched from the second of a three-game homestand against the San Diego Gulls. Colorado Eagles head coach, Greg Cronin said he wanted him to have a satellite view of his game to “open a door to potential he hasn’t walked through yet.” The third-round pick from the…

A new season is underway for nearly all Avalanche prospects and the pool is looking a bit on the thin side but the Avs still have a few key prospects on the radar, be it for the future or maybe more realistically as trade fodder. AHL: The Eagles started the season splitting two back-to-backs but more importantly from the development front have a new man at the helm in Kevin McDonald; keep an eye out for a piece from Meghan Angley later this week who sat down with McDonald. The call-up process is already in full churn mode for Colorado, including call-ups for Martin Kaut and Mikhail Maltsev. Behind them, other prospects are getting a bonafide opportunity in the AHL.…

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...

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.

The prospects have completed Game 1 of the Rookie Face-Off tournament. Colorado captured a close 3-2 win in an exciting and at times whistle-happy game. The lines were exactly as expected with a top line of Oskar Olausson, Ben Meyers, and Jean-Luc Foudy. Meyers wore an “A” in the contest which falls in line with the leadership prowess he demonstrated in development and rookie camp. Justus Annunen got the start in net. https://twitter.com/Avalanche/status/1570875523018162177 Period 1 This was a strong period for Colorado. You could see that they were still learning about one another, and started to get comfortable in the second half. They controlled possession, and gained an advantage at the faceoff dot. Colorado would trail first after LA’s Brandt…

Yesterday the rookies took to the ice at Family Sports Center for practice before heading to San Joe for the tournament.

On November 5th, 2017, Matt Duchene was pulled mid-game in what would become a three-way trade wherein the Avalanche acquired Shane Bowers’ rights.
