Are The Avalanche your team? Then let's hear what you have to say. NHL discussion and opinion right here.
A selection of the latest Colorado Avalanche news and blog posts.
Colorado Avalanche: Alex Newhook Brings Speed and Agility to his Playmaking While I think it's unlikely Newhook will still be available for the Avalanche's 16th pick, and I don't think he's an option as high as their 4th, if they do decide to draft him he's a solid choice. He has the speed, agility and playmaking skill to eventually fill that second line center position that the Avalanche need.
Colorado Avalanche: Perfect 7-Round Draft Scenario The Colorado Avalanche are playing with house money on this pick — it’s the last gift from the Matt Duchene trade. Why not take a little gamble in the hopes you get a big return? About this time I’d like to see the Colorado Avalanche pick another defenseman to keep that prospect pool deep.
Sharks re-signing Erik Karlsson sets table for busy NHL offseason Erik Karlsson had no wanderlust to test the free agent market before re-signing in San Jose. "I never thought outside that box," Karlsson said. "I'm happy that it didn't get to that." A handful of other teams aren't so happy because the two-time Norris Trophy-winning defenseman would have been the best unrestricted free agent available.
2019 NHL Draft Prospect Profile: Kieran Brown Kieran Brown may not be a name many NHL Draft followers have come across, but the 18-year-old has the potential to follow Liam Kirk's footsteps as the next British player to be drafted into the NHL.
Morning Flurries: Karlsson signs, Trouba traded For the ceiling, it appears as though the number will be less than what everyone was told midseason, meaning GMs will have only $82 million to spend instead of the $83 million they have all been working off of up to this point.
How and where would Trevor Zegras fit in if he were to be… The belief is the 18-year-old could someday become an elite-level playmaking center who is also capable of scoring goals.
Why Joe Pavelski makes sense for the Avalanche When Erik Karlsson surprised many around the league and re-signed with the San Jose Sharks this morning, it sent shockwaves across the NHL. Not only had.
This American player could change the landscape of the NHL draft Every NHL draft season, one player finds himself as the X-factor of the first round. Teams picking in the top 10 are all weighing the pros.
Colorado Avalanche: Peyton Krebs a Fast and Skilled Playmaker Although he's been ranked lower than 4th, and his recent injury puts his draft position in question, the Avalanche should certainly pay some consideration to Krebs for their 4th pick. He has the skills and leadership ability necessary for an NHL center and could very well find himself wearing the "C" or the "A" in years to come.
Colorado Avalanche: Would Joe Pavelski be a Good Acquisition? As I started my list of potential free agents to cover, I didn't include anyone over 30. Colorado is a young team, and the indication is there that the Avs want to stay young. GM Joe Sakic once stated he wanted the kids to grow up together. But, have they grown up enough that he might consider an older player as a bridge?
Alex Turcotte might not be in play for the Avalanche. But… Says his NDTP coach: "He's a magician. If there wasn't a Jack Hughes in this draft, Turcotte could be No. He's that skilled."
Colorado Avalanche: Marcus Johansson a Speedy and Versatile Free Agency Forward The Colorado Avalanche might be looking for speedy, versatile forwards in free agency. If so, Marcus Johansson fits the bill. The Colorado Avalanche, like…
2019 NHL Draft Preview - Colorado Avalanche The Colorado Avalanche have eight picks in the 2019 NHL draft, with two in the first-round - No. 4 and No. 16. Who could the Avs take at No.
Colorado Avalanche: Cam York a Smart Two-Way Defenseman American defenseman Cam York's hockey sense could be what the Colorado Avalanche need. With less than a week to go until the 2019 NHL draft the Colorado Av…
NHL Rumors: Islanders, Donskoi, Avs, and 31 Thoughts Roundup The Flyers were looking at Trouba. Would a trade involving Trouba-Shayne Gostisbehere make sense? A Roberto Luongo decision should be made before the draft. The Wild could be interested in Anders Lee or Joe Pavelski if they go to free agency.
Colorado Avalanche: Anders Lee Could Add Stability If you ask many Avs fans what the team needs, the first thing they'll probably say is a second-line center. However, the team also needs some secondary scoring. Maybe they need some stability, too. I know I think they need a little size up front since they've gotten smaller at the back end.
NHL Prospect Profile Lassi Thomson Thomson was a frustrating watch for me honestly. As much as I've defended Tyson Barrie as a valuable NHL player over the years, I still struggle with defensemen who struggle to play defense. It's a complicated relationship, okay? Thomson's defense leaves a lot to be desired.
NHL Prospect Profile Ryan Johnson This is one of my favorite players in this draft class. Johnson has great mobility and I think significantly more offense than he got to showcase in an extremely simplified system in the USHL.
Colorado Avalanche: Anttoni Honka Brings Strong Skating and Good Stick Handling Finnish defenseman Anttoni Honka is one option for the Avalanche's 47th pick. If the name sounds familiar it's because he's the younger brother of Dallas Stars defenseman Julius Honka. 2018-19 Team: JYP Date of Birth: Oct 5, 2000 Height: 5'10″Weight: 176 lbs.Position: DefensemanShoots: Right.
NHL Rumors: Avalanche, Panthers, Maple Leafs, and Blue Jackets NHL Rumors: The Florida Panthers looking to trade James Reimer. To buyout or not if they can't trade him? Toronto Maple Leafs shopping Garret Sparks.
2019 NHL Draft Rankings For the Colorado Avalanche, the 2019 NHL Entry Draft means two things - they will finally be able to close the door on the 2017 Matt Duchene trade and with an abundance of picks in the top-65, the team will be able to stock the prospect pool with more high-end talent.
Chambers: Former Avalanche, DU Pioneer and CC Tiger hoist the Stanley Cup From my perspective as a Colorado native, it was nice to see Ryan O'Reilly, Tyler Bozak and Jaden Schwartz hoist the Stanley Cup on Wednesday at TD Garden in Boston. The Saint Louis Blues' trio each spent significant time in the Centennial State as youngsters, and I was fortunate to work with them and follow their development.
Colorado Avalanche: 2019 NHL Mock Draft First Round The Colorado Avalanche have two picks in the 2019 NHL Draft. Here's how the whole first round could play out. The Colorado Avalanche have a good draft sele…
