It takes a certain breed of person to willingly perch on the metal bleachers of the Family Sports Center at 8AM on a Tuesday to squint through fogged over glass just to watch a bunch of 17- to 25-year-old hockey players practice, but Avs Prospect Camp Day 1 saw a decent turn out.  This was the first year the on-ice portion of…...

Between the draft, free agency, firing/hirings, and trades, a huge amount of change can happen in a very short…...

A longer-than-expected off-season has seen the Colorado Avalanche state time and time again their desire to add quality left-handed defensemen to the fold and now they have signed one in Francois Beauchemin. The 35-year old Beauchemin departs the Anaheim Ducks, his second stint with the team, after spending parts of the last five seasons there as he has inked…...

Before tackling the July 1st free agency period, the Colorado Avalanche needed to take care of some business in-house, making qualifying offers to a number of their restricted free agents in advance of this afternoon’s qualifying offer deadline. After revealing this weekend that Joey Hishon would be qualified and Jordan Caron would be let go, the Avalanche, according to the NHL’s official free…...

The NHL’s off-season moves at a breakneck pace with the Stanley Cup being awarded one week, the NHL Draft happening the next, and then free agency setting teams up for next season the week after that. With Chicago having won yet another Stanley Cup and the NHL Draft completed last weekend, it means it’s time for free agency to…...

With the NHL Entry Draft completed this past weekend, there’s been an infusion of youth and talent into the Colorado Avalanche organization. The trade of Ryan O’Reilly to the Buffalo Sabres also helped the Avalanche remake their prospect pool, previously one of the NHL’s weakest, in the span of just two days. The BSN Avalanche staff got together and…...

Amidst all the clatter and excitement of the Ryan O’Reilly trade and the NHL Draft this weekend, the Colorado Avalanche made a sneaky, very suspicious move which should put General Managers in Calgary and Chicago on high alert. Before the start of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft’s second round, the Avalanche swapped the 31st overall pick (obtained from…...

Today, we’re going to touch on the Carl Soderberg acquisition, the Ryan O’Reilly trade, and the results of the NHL Draft. First question…...

It was a busy weekend for the Colorado Avalanche, one that saw them ship Ryan O’Reilly and Jamie McGinn to the Buffalo Sabres in a blockbuster deal. In-your-face defenseman Nikita Zadorov was the big fish coming Colorado’s way, and American-born J.T. Compher is a nice prospect entering his junior season at the University of Michigan. The Avalanche also landed the…...

With the 161st selection in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft the Colorado Avalanche selected Drummondville Voltiguers defenseman Sergei Boikov. After choosing a pair of QMJHL players earlier in the draft and an over-age Russian defenseman in the 4th round, the Avalanche combined the two in round 6, drafting an over-age Russian defenseman from the QMJHL. Boikov is a 19 year old,…...
