Of the prospects covered so far, power forward Jordan Caron is the only one with a significant number of NHL games under his belt.  He’s also proved to be the most divisive.  The BSN writers ranked him between 13th and 21st overall, with some valuing his potential and experience and others criticizing his lackluster showing with the Avs. Who is Jordan Caron?…...

As I looked for the hulking winger, however, all I could see was former Avalanche…...

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…...
