The BSN Avalanche Podcast drops again this week with hosts J.J. Jerez and AJ Haefele opening the show with a look at the expected impact of forward Mikko Rantanen and how he will fit into the Avalanche lineup.

The second segment takes a look at this weekend’s games as the team finally, mercifully returns to the ice as they host the Winnipeg Jets before jumping on a plane and playing the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday night.

The third segment features a conversation with Avalanche defenseman Patrick Wiercioch and the guys talk about what a great fit he’s been for the team so far.

The final segment has our Colorado Safe Outlet Question of the Week and a conversation about which Halloween costumes best fit certain Avalanche players.
