The NHL’s Department of Player Safety announced today the eight-game suspension of Avalanche forward Nazem Kadri. The hit came in the third period of Colorado’s 6-3 Game 2 win over the St. Louis Blues as he was penalized for an illegal check to the head of Blues defenseman Justin Faulk. Kadri was given a major and a match penalty for…...

Goalies, man. They’re weird, unpredictable creatures even in the best of times. If you look at the numbers right now, goaltenders with a save percentage under .900 include Sergei Bobrovsky, Braden Holtby, Tuukka Rask, Carey Price, Robin Lehner, Carter Hart, and Ilya Sorokin. That’s a lot of hardware and two of the brightest young goaltenders in the game today. Even…...

For the second straight game, it was a high-profile Av getting the proverbial monkey off his back to lead the Avs to victory. Two nights ago, it was Brandon Saad leading the Avs to victory as he enjoyed a two-goal effort. Tonight, his linemate Nazem Kadri enjoyed a three-point third period as relentless Avalanche pressure finally broke through on a…...

“That’s what I want to do.” It was nothing short of a disastrous start for Brandon Saad in Colorado, scoring just one goal in his first six games and repeatedly being on the ice when the opposing team found the back of the net. Following a two-goal performance in Colorado’s 7-3 beatdown of the San Jose Sharks, Saad was upbeat…...

The year that no one wanted is finally over. While the majority of 2020 is better left in the rearview, it wasn’t all bad on the ice. On this edition of The Tape, we look back at some of the best plays made by the Avs last season. 1. Depth dominance. We start with a little reminder that even a fourth-line…...

Welcome back, hockey! And I don’t mean that weird exhibition game against Minnesota that was like snacking on kettle chips while waiting for Thanksgiving dinner to finally hit the table. This was the real thing. Hockey that meant something, that actually counted. The Avs used all 59 minutes and 59.9 seconds available to them to top the St. Louis Blues…...

After falling short last year in seven grueling games to the San Jose Sharks, Colorado’s front office knew it had the high-end talent to make trips to the second round a regular occurrence. It also knew it lacked the kind of depth needed to get beyond that point. Insert an aggressive offseason plan that saw Colorado add talent up front…...

Funny what a couple of years can do in the NHL. It wasn’t that long ago that Joe Sakic was in the shadow of the impetuous attitude of Patrick Roy, his former teammate back during their glory-filled playing day. Their management structure didn’t last long and yielded almost disastrous results. Their parting of ways left their pet project, the Colorado…...
