Gary Harris was just 20-years-old but the 19th overall pick’s NBA career was already at a crossroads. Harris was coming off a dreadful rookie season where the Michigan State product averaged 13.1 minutes across 55 games. His stat line, which read 3.4 points per game on 30.4 percent shooting from the field and 20.4 percent from three, was historic but…

The hope, the plan, was to have Will Butcher signed, sealed and delivered to the Colorado Avalanche by now. It hasn’t happened yet, and with every passing day closer to Aug. 15, hope grows dimmer. The University of Denver defenseman, the winner of the Hobey Baker Award as college hockey’s best player this past season, technically remains property of…...

It has been a topic of hot debate among Colorado Avalanche fans and pundits, the question of who the Avs should protect in the upcoming NHL Expansion Draft from the new Las Vegas Golden Knights team. The Avs can only protect one goaltender, so either Semyon Varlamov or Calvin Pickard would have to be exposed. The goalie that will…...

MacKinnon’s latest acting work adventure comes in Season 11 of…...
