The Colorado Avalanche thumped the Vancouver Canucks 7-1 in a game that was a “must-win” in the sense of, the Avs need to…...

Just when we thought the good news was starting to roll in for the Avalanche, we find out today that Nathan MacKinnon is being evaluated for a lower-body injury and was held out of practice. The good news *was* that Cale Makar and Valeri Nichiushkin went from being potential options for Colorado’s next game to looking like they were shoo-ins…...

The 2015 World Championships continued in Prague, this time pitting the Avalanche players on Team Canada against their teammate Jan Hejda. Hejda has been averaging over nineteen and a half minutes of ice time per game with team Czech Republic, paired with HC CSKA Moscow’s Ondřej Němec of the KHL.

Game two for the Avalanche players suited up for Team Canada was a 10-0 shelling of Team Germany. To those familiar with the disparity in skill between Canada’s top league and Germany’s Deutsche Eishockey Liga this won’t come as a surprise. Despite the 4100 or so miles separating Canada from the Czech Republic, there were an impressive number of…...
