It’s been a wild 24 hours for Greg Pateryn, who woke up this morning with news from the league that he was being fined $5,000 for a cross-checking incident in last night’s game against the Anaheim Ducks. Now, Pateryn is riding the Avs team bus solo from Anaheim to Los Angeles as he and Ian Cole are swapping spots after…...

When the Colorado Avalanche released their training camp roster on Saturday, there were very few surprises. No PTOs, no deals signed we hadn’t heard about, no shenanigans of any sort. Yet, at the very top sporting the new number four was Bowen Byram. Given he’s arguably the best defenseman in the world not currently in the NHL, it wasn’t a…...

I don’t even know what to write about this game. I’ve been sitting here for several minutes just kind of lost in thought. It was all just so…familiar. Avs played well? Got an early lead? Check. Avs lost the special teams battle? Check. Avs had a lead going into the third period? Check. Avs blew it thanks to a combination…...

Colorado’s 4-2 win over Columbus was an entertaining hockey game full of highlights. The Avalanche came back from a 2-1 deficit period in the second period to earn their second straight home win. That deficit is where we begin with this edition of Avalanche Film Room. Trailing 2-1 halfway through the second period, Colorado was pinned in their own end.…...

There are a few games every year where you just give away the game. In their 12th game of the season, the Avs finally had one of those nights. They pulled a point but in the locker room after their 4-3 overtime loss to the Florida Panthers, it was the one that got away they couldn’t stop thinking about. “Yeah,…...

Four goals in 9:25. That was all it took for the Avs to set the tone on Monday afternoon in their matchup with the Washington Capitals. Erik Johnson, Nikita Zadorov, Nazem Kadri, and Mikko Rantanen scored within the first half of the first period, and from there, the Avs did just enough to hold on and come out of the…...

When the Avs clinched the wild card spot in 2018 in the final game of the regular season with an empty netter, there were some big names on the ice. Nathan MacKinnon. Gabriel Landeskog. Mikko Rantanen. Another guy who was on the ice protecting the lead? Mark Barberio. It’s easy to forget that Barberio, after being picked up on waivers…...

It was the story of training camp, but Conor Timmins’ time in the NHL is over…for now. Averaging just 10:25 of ice time in the first two games of the season, and not quite having the trust of the coaching staff late in games, the Avs are sending the 21-year-old Timmins to the Colorado Eagles of the AHL to get…...

For a team sporting the least amount of five-on-five time in 2018-19, you could say special teams are important for the Colorado Avalanche. In fact, Colorado’s performance with the man advantage and disadvantage is critical to their success next season. Last year, the Avs’ power play ranked seventh-best in the NHL while their penalty kill finished seventh-worst. Offseason moves transformed…...

BROOKLYN, N.Y. – The Avalanche got some bad news earlier today: veteran defenseman Ian Cole will be out indefinitely with what the team says is an upper-body injury. Cole suffered the injury in a third-period fight with Washington’s Tom Wilson Thursday night. Cole clearly took the worst of the fight, absorbing several blows to the head. The Avs are simply…
