This Season Matt Nieto found himself as a bit of a Swiss Army knife for the Avs’ middle six this season. At five on five, he was usually on the do-it-all line alongside Soderberg and Calvert, but he found a home as one of Colorado’s best penalty killers. Points-wise Nieto was on pace with his previous season as he scored…...

This Season Gabriel Landeskog was one of the most improved players this season. He had seen time on different lines with different line combos, however, Bednar could not keep him away from MacKinnon and Rantanen. Landeskog’s career year landed him in the All-Star Game starring alongside Rantanen as MacKinnon nursed a minor injury. This was the season all of the…...

This season Call it back luck, call him injury prone. In the last two seasons Vladislav Kamenev has played 26 games with the Colorado Avalanche before suffering season-ending injuries. Kamenev played in just three games in his first season with the Avalanche after breaking his arm in his first game and briefly returning to health near the end of the…...

Last season Matt Calvert was obtained in the 2017-2018 off season as an unrestricted free agent. He previously played with the Columbus Blue Jackets. Calvert is a 3rd-4th line player that plays with a lot of heart and soul. Calvert saw an impact on the defensive side of the puck and often played on the Avalanche penalty kill. His injury…...

This season There are two tales of Tyson Jost in the 2018-2019 NHL season. The pre and post Colorado Eagles Jost, a period between January 18 and February 9 in which Jost took his demotion in stride. In his time with the Colorado Eagles Jost saw eight games tallying five points (4g, 1a), enough to get Jost his mojo back…...

For a team sporting the least amount of five-on-five time in 2018-19, you could say special teams are important for the Colorado Avalanche. In fact, Colorado’s performance with the man advantage and disadvantage is critical to their success next season. Last year, the Avs’ power play ranked seventh-best in the NHL while their penalty kill finished seventh-worst. Offseason moves transformed…...

The Colorado Avalanche have signed free agent forward Valeri Nichushkin to a one-year contract. The deal is one-way worth $850k. Nichushkin, 24, played in 57 games for the Dallas Stars last season while battling some lower-body injuries. When healthy enough to play, Nichushkin recorded just 10 assists and didn’t tally a single goal. The 6-foot-4 210-pound winger has had a…...

What happened last year? What is there to say about JT Compher other then he has been doing it all. Compher had a large step forward in his game from his first full season to his second full season. Statistically, Compher saw a jump in production as he scored 32 points (16g, 16A) in just 66 games played versus the…...

Do the Avalanche finally have depth scoring? After a season in which a three-headed monster featuring Gabe Landeskog, Nathan MacKinnon, and Mikko Rantanen ate the majority of Colorado’s minutes, the Avalanche believe they may finally have consistent production beyond the top line. As the undisputed second-line center, Nazem Kadri will drive offense alongside Colorado’s budding young forwards. The Avs are…...

With training camp and preseason games right around the corner, Jared Bednar will soon be brainstorming ways to hit the ground running in time for the regular season. The Avalanche can all but guarantee a playoff appearance by outmatching the fitness, focus, and most importantly, scoring of their opponents through their first 20 games. Or can they? In the past,…...

The Avalanche wrapped up the last of their non-Mikko Rantanen business this morning when they inked A.J. Greer to a one-year contract. It’s a modest raise for Greer, who will make only $735K in the NHL but $90K in the AHL, which is up from the $70K he got last year to be one of the best players for…...

Few things made me roll my eyes quite like listening to the NBC broadcast crew refer to the San Jose Sharks neutral zone set up as a “teal-picket fence” during their playoff series against the Avalanche. It was the kind of hokey nonsense broadcasts throw at you in order to appeal to a more casual audience and watching the…...

The Avalanche entered the summer with a large number of unsigned young players who they were going to have to find a way to sign while still navigating the free-agent field. After signing Vlad Kamenev yesterday, Colorado was down to two unsigned RFAs and decided to get a headstart on next season. That headstart comes in the form of a…...

The Colorado Avalanche have re-signed forward Vladislav Kamenev to a one-year contract. Financial terms were undisclosed. He will be a restricted free agent again next summer. Kamenev, 22, played in 23 games this season before getting coming injured in a game against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Kamenev sustained a shoulder injury resulting in surgery this season. Prior to the injury,…...

The Cale Makar hype train is leaving the station. Conductor Joe Sakic asks you to take your seats and hold onto something. This is going to be a wild ride. Sakic and company dealt Tyson Barrie to the Toronto Maple Leafs on July 1, effectively doubling down on their confidence in the NHL newbie. Following this move, the expectations for…...

When the Avalanche took Bowen Byram fourth overall at last month’s entry draft, it cemented Colorado’s future defense as one filled with stars. When Joe Sakic met the media shortly after, he was not shy about the organization’s intention to give Byram a long look in training camp this year. With injuries to Erik Johnson and Ian Cole, it would…...

Everything about Brandon Saigeon’s time in the Avalanche organization has been peculiar. Even the drafting of Saigeon was outside of Colorado’s usual bag of tricks. They haven’t been shy about drafting older players (eight, including Saigeon, in the last five years) but Saigeon was the only one who was in his second time through and in the CHL. Because…...
