Today’s entry in our ‘Top 25 Avalance Under 25’ series sees the first of two goaltenders on the list, Spencer Martin, ranked #17. Coming in at 6’3″ and 200 pounds, Martin is the most physically prominent goalie in the Avalanche system. Only current goaltenders Semyon Varlamov and Reto Berra come close to Martin’s size. Who is Spencer Martin? After being drafted by…...

As the Top 25 Under 25 countdown continues, we reach the ranks of players with some NHL experience under their belts. Borna Rendulic lands at #18 on our list. He marks a departure from the Rick Pracey-style players profiled previously, from his undrafted signing to his large frame and slower skating. The former SM-Liiga forward and Team Croatia alternate…...

We enter the teens of our ‘Top 25 Avalanche Under 25’ series today, with defenseman Kyle Wood holding down the #19 spot on our list. Wood is essentially a polar opposite to the much smaller forward, Colin Smith, who was profiled yesterday. The 6’5″ and 210 pound Wood was consistently rated by the BSN Avalanche staff, with the six votes split…...

A few months ago, rumors that the Colorado Avalanche had signed Norweigan forward Andreas Martinsen appeared all over European hockey boards.  The team hasn’t confirmed or denied their interest in Martinsen, but, with the IIHF World Championship in full swing, I took the opportunity to scout the rumored Avalanche signee. As I looked for the hulking winger, however, all I could see was former Avalanche…...

A run of three straight defenseman (check out: #23 Cody Corbett, #22 Will Butcher, and #21 Mat Clark) in our ‘Top 25 Under 25’ series comes to an end today, as #20 on our list is forward Colin Smith. Smith is an undersized centerman with plenty of skill and spunk. He was fairly consistently rated among all six BSN…...

The 2015 World Championships continued in Prague, this time pitting the Avalanche players on Team Canada against their teammate Jan Hejda.

While Hejda didn’t tally on the scoresheet, he exhibited…...

On March 2nd of 2015, the Avalanche traded Michael Sgarbossa to the Anaheim Ducks for defenseman Mat Clark. The move was, presumably, designed to bolster the blueline of Colorado’s then AHL affiliate, the Lake Erie Monsters. While born in Lakewood, Colorado, Clark was raised in Milton, Ontario. Thus, it wasn’t surprising that he chose to take the OHL route…...

The ‘Top 25 Avalanche Under 25′ series continues with its third consecutive defenseman in #21 Mat Clark.  At 24 years old, Clark is the oldest player featured so far, and edges out #22 Will Butcher, #23 Cody Corbett, and #24 Samuel Henley in large part due to his professional hockey experience. Our 6 BSN Avalanche writers gave Clark scores ranging from 20th…...

It’s said that distance gives perspective.  As we head into the third week of the Avs’ off-season, it still might be too early to fully assess everything that caused this extremely frustrating campaign.  After a magical 112 point finish and Division Championship only a year ago, this drastic crash back to earth obviously had to be caused by something.…...

As we keep rolling on with the “Top 25 Avalanche Under 25′ series, it’s time to introduce Denver University blueliner Will Butcher to the list at #22.  In case you missed any of AJ’s great work last week, #25 Troy Bourke, #24 Samuel Henley, and #23 Cody Corbett are certainly worth the read. Beyond having a great name, Butcher…...

Game two for the Avalanche players suited up for Team Canada was a 10-0 shelling of Team Germany. To those familiar with the disparity in skill between Canada’s top league and Germany’s Deutsche Eishockey Liga this won’t come as a surprise. Despite the 4100 or so miles separating Canada from the Czech Republic, there were an impressive number of…...

The 2015 IIHF World Championships began on the 1st of May in Prague, Czech Republic. The Avalanche’s contribution to Team Canada–consisting of forwards Matt Duchene, Nathan MacKinnon, and Ryan O’Reilly in addition to defenseman Tyson Barrie–made an immediate impact. Nathan MacKinnon scored the first goal of the tournament for Canada, an impressive one-timer through traffic performed whilst skating backwards.…...

The power play — one of the more compelling facets of NHL hockey. In reality, it is a small part of the equation, yet it frequently has a large impact on the final outcome. How often does a team lament missed opportunities with the man-advantage after a loss, or applaud the power play if it helps achieve victory? The Colorado…...

Yesterday we took a look at Troy Bourke, the small center who was voted in as the 25th best player in the Avalanche under organization under the age of 25. Today, we’re going to profile what you could safely say is Bourke’s exact opposite in Big Sam Henley. Coming in at 25th on 4 of the 6 ballots turned…...

With the Avalanche firmly into their off-season, it’s a golden opportunity to take a look at the organization and see what the future holds for a team that appears on the cusp of consistent playoff contention. To kick that off, we’re going to be running the Top 25 Avalanche Under 25 series for the next several weeks. The BSN…...

When the Colorado Avalanche did not get the magical lottery combination last Saturday night during the NHL Draft Lottery, they were locked into the 10th overall selection in the first round. While there was much conversation about the team winning 3 games in a row to end the season and in the process likely costing them the 8th overall selection,…...
