A.J. Haefele was born in Aurora, Colorado, raised in Katy, Texas and is the Colorado Avalanche beat reporter for BSN Denver. AJ helped launch the network back in 2015 and has filled roles as a team leader and Editor-In- Chief, along with co-hosting the BSN Denver draft podcasts along with his other duties. You can hear him every weekday on the BSN Avalanche podcast.

  • Have you abandoned your MGS scoring metric and adopted AD’s X rating, or is this a one-off?

  • How about Coach Bednar? Throwing a 6th player on the ice in the last couple of minute seemed quite cunning!

  • hahahahaha!!!
    I got in on the sale for the new Grubi T-shirt. It was the one I’ve been waiting for.
    Saved my Black Friday coupon. Only paid shipping baby!
    Just hope it gets here before the playoffs start and I ordered the right size.

    Seriously happy for the Avs!

  • Very fun grades, and season AJ!
    Thank you, Jesse and Dater for your hard work and great coverage all season.

  • Clever, but I subscribed primarily for Avs grades. How about throwing us a bone and doing a real one?

    • I love the player grades, too, but I expected this. AJ’s right: Doesn’t matter. Made the playoffs.

    • Fully agreed. Seems a little low on effort, and the lack of decent content lately has been making me revisit my decision to subscribe for another month, let alone year.

      • Everyone’s entitled to their opinions here but I wrote the game story last night, did a locker room audio dump today, wrote a FIlm Room, and recorded a podcast all dedicated to this game.

        I had a little fun with the grades, which I know is a popular feature, but lobbing a “low on effort” grenade my way definitely doesn’t seem particularly fair.

  • BEST. GRADES. EVER.

    *great job this season on grades…..and mister? you’re not done!

  • AJ – that is hilarious! Keep up the good work through the playoffs. I really like how that sounds.

  • So here is the question that inquiring minds want to know. Both wildcards are Central division teams. If the 8th place wildcard wins the 1st two rounds, be it Dallas or Colorado, would they raise a banner next fall that says “2018-19 Pacific Division Champions”?

      • It’s a dig at Nashville raising a banner after last year that said “2017-2018 Regular Season Western Conference Champions”

  • Everyone who is complaining…. come on man.
    I saw the grades link and thought who gives a shit they made the playoffs. And the lo and behold!
    Let’s be honest here, the boys can pull this one maybe two times a year, and its fun. The main reason I subscribe is not for the quality of the content, but the character of the content.
    This is BSN, they have fun, that’s the point.
