At this weekend’s Rookie Showcase/Faceoff/Tournament (whatever you want to call it as it seems everyone has their own name for it), the Colorado Avalanche has an impressive five first-round picks in attendance.

Training camps open up across the NHL tomorrow morning and with that, the Avs released their full roster of participants. The 34-player roster has some interesting names included that will lead to an interesting two weeks of battling for spots in the pecking order when injuries inevitably hit during the postseason. The Avs are slated to leave for the “bubble”…...

That story was Martin Kaut. When the charismatic 19-year-old was called up, it was meaningful for several reasons.…...

The majority of leagues both junior and pro end long before the NHL does. That means this time of year is when the best carry their teams to the promised land and the Avs have more than a few prospects doing just that.

Shane Bowers has made quite the impression on him. “I thought he was excellent both nights. Excellent.” And that was just the beginning. “Bigger, stronger, faster than he was last…...

It hasn’t quite been the preseason the Avalanche were hoping for in terms of results as they lost their third straight to open their preseason schedule. A 4-3 loss to the Minnesota Wild today in Minneapolis was another of those classic battles between roster disparity as the home team iced a mostly-NHL lineup and the Avalanche sent a mixture of…...

After two days of mostly systems installation work, the Avalanche got into some real competitive situations today with small-team scrimmages. The two sessions ran as normal so the scrimmages weren’t too deep with each team only having a couple defensive pairings and lines each but it provided some of the younger guys real opportunities to shine against NHL competition.…...
