Carl Soderberg looked like one miserable person last season, and why not? He suffered through the worst statistical season of his career on the worst team in Colorado Avalanche team history (not including Quebec). Talking to Soderberg had all the charm and comfort of a Mike Wallace “60 Minutes” interview. But there was an actual smile on Soderberg’s face again…...

Just a few minutes removed here from Jared Bednar’s morning presser, as the Avs resume their schedule against the Washington Capitals tonight. The news: Tyson Jost is healthy again. That’s the good news. The surprising rest of the story is that he will be doing his hockey-playing with the San Antonio Rampage of the AHL for at least the next…...

(Material used in this story was provided by BSN Denver’s Jesse Montano, who is in Stockholm and obtained this first-hand) STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – Samuel Girard is the one player acquired in Sunday’s blockbuster Matt Duchene trade who will actually play for the Colorado Avalanche, starting Friday against Duchene and the Ottawa Senators. To say that the last week has been…...

Lots of laughs around the locker of Nikita Zadorov today. That’s sarcasm. Definitely not a fun time for the big Russian defenseman again, as he is in that dreaded state of no-man’s-land of being good enough to be on the Colorado Avalanche’s roster, but not deemed good enough of late to play actual games. When Zadorov was a healthy scratch…...

Looks like these are the lines for the Avs tonight against the Stars, at Pepsi Center: Andrighetto-MacKinnon-Rantanen Landeskog-Duchene-Yakupov Greer-Kerfoot-Bourque Nieto-Soderberg-Comeau Johnson-Zadorov Lindholm-Barrie Barberio-Bigras Varlamov NOTEBOOK Colin Wilson will not play tonight with an undisclosed injury.

In this week’s Avalanche weekly breakdown, Adrian Dater and Allie Monroy discuss what the Avs need to do to stop their three-game losing streak, starting with Tuesday’s game with Dallas. Who needs to step up offensively to fill the void with the injuries to Tyson Jost and J.T. Compher? Also, why is it important that Erik Johnson not play as…...

Welcome to the second installment of “Avalanche Mailbag”, where I try – keyword try – to answer/address/discuss some of your questions and observations. As I write this, the Avs have lost three games in a row and just lost two key young forwards (Tyson Jost and J.T. Compher), not to mention a defenseman (Patrik Nemeth) who was among the NHL’s…...

The Colorado Avalanche returned home from their two-game road trip and had a short practice Wednesday morning as they prepare to take on the St. Louis Blues in their third home game of the season tomorrow night. One of the notable changes to the lineup was Sven Andrighetto had been replaced by Tyson Jost on the team’s theoretical top line…...

The Colorado Avalanche got some bad medical news Monday morning, when it was revealed that defenseman Patrik Nemeth – off to a great start as one of the NHL’s plus-minus leaders – sustained a shoulder injury and has flown back to Denver for further evaluation. Nemeth hurt the shoulder in the following fight Saturday night with former Dallas Stars teammate…...

Turns out Tyson Jost didn’t escape that scary collision into the boards unscathed after all. The Avalanche forward will not play Friday night against the Anaheim Ducks with a hyperextended left knee, along with a bone bruise. He won’t play Saturday night in Dallas, either. The better news, though: Jost should be back on the practice ice Monday, and could…...

With a few snips of the scissors, Mark Barberio went from heavy metal to high and tight. For those Colorado Avalanche fans who grooved on Barberio’s long, flowing mane last season, sorry. Most of it wound up on the floor of some barbershop out there this summer. “Just a new look, you know? Changing things up a little,” Barberio said.…...

Did you hear the one about the Avalanche defense? Did you hear that it takes two Avalanche defenders to screw in a light bulb – one to hold the chair and the other to get a minus-3? Did you hear that a Swiss cheese maker made inquiries into having the Avalanche defense be their brand ambassadors? These are just the…...

SAN JOSE, CALIF. – Got some time to kill at the airport gate before my flight back to Denver, so I thought I’d kill some of it with some observations from the Avs’ just-concluded rookie showcase tourney here in Silicon Valley. I’m glad I came, as it’s been a while since I’ve really been able to focus in on some…...

SAN JOSE, CALIF. – Spencer Martin wasn’t going to make the Avalanche’s varsity club, no matter how well he played in this “Prospect Showcase” tournament. He could have done handstands out of the Shark Ice practice complex and he’d still be ticketed to San Antonio by the end of this month at the latest. The Avs already have two veteran goalies,…...

SAN JOSE, CALIF. – He had already lost the tale of the tape, by but A.J. Greer still wanted to drop ’em with the biggest guy on the ice Monday night. That says it all about the Colorado Avalanche prospect, who might as well have “No Fear” as his new nickname. Kyle Wood, a former defenseman Avalanche prospect now with…...

SAN JOSE, CALIF. – There won’t be any getting Alex Kerfoot off his game mentally with a “How do you like them apples?” crack about the Harvard grad, a la Matt Damon to that pony-tailed D-bag in that bar scene from “Goodwill Hunting.” No doubt, though, plenty of opponents will try. American “college boys” still face a barrage of trash…...

Sometimes, promises of a bright future shone through. At other times, things…...
