The BSN Avalanche Podcast returns with AJ Haefele and Nathan Rudolph breaking down what Colorado should do with the 16th pick in this year’s draft. Yes, they talk goalies.


A.J. Haefele was born in Aurora, Colorado, raised in Katy, Texas and is the Colorado Avalanche beat reporter for DNVR. 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 DNVR draft podcasts along with his other duties. You can hear him every weekday on the DNVR Avalanche podcast.

  • Holy crap it’s an absolute pleasure listening to you two cats discuss Avs hockey and the draft. Just freaking incredible – an hour twenty goes by like a few minutes. Still want to hear what you guys think of Podkolzin, sounds like you think he might be a possibility at 4.

  • AJ,

    Do you think Sakic has it in him to make a huge draft gamble on Podkolzin with the 4th pick?

    Thank you,


  • Once Lavoie fills into his frame he’ll be able to transition to the nhl. Great hands and skating.

  • Great job … love having Rudo on! Can you get Luke from Winnipeg on too? That would be sweet to have all 3 of you discussing the options!!
