Hello Avs fans! It’s been a while since I have written anything because I have been pretty engrossed in my recent infatuation with hockey cards. I’ve neglected this blog since the season began and spending my free time scouring eBay and the Beckett.com message boards for cards to add to my collection. When I wasn’t doing that I was adding cards to Beckett’s trade tool and working on moving cards I don’t want for cards for my collections!
Anyways, since the All-Star break just ended and the Avalanche are getting back on the ice tonight I wanted to take a moment to write about the seasons biggest surprises and disappointments thus far. (more…)
Hello once again Avs fans. The Avs are returning home tonight after a five game road trip through parts of the eastern United States and Canada, and what a road trip it was. After kicking off the season with a 3-0 loss to the Detroit Red Wings at home the Avs managed to win five in a row on the road. (more…)
With the season right around the corner and teams finalizing their rosters, coaches throughout the league are also working on solidifying their lines. Of course nothing is ever set in stone when it comes to line combinations, but based on today’s Avalanche practice Joe Sacco has his lines figured out. (more…)
With the NHL season kicking off tomorrow today was the deadline for clubs to finalize their regular season rosters. The Avs made their final cuts today reassigning one player to Lake Erie and placing three in the injured reserve.
The roster was previously cut to 27 players on October 2nd. I tweeted about it, but haven’t been able to find the time to write anything up. (more…)
With the regular season fast approaching the Avalanche are slimming down its roster and the battle for spots is heating up. Three more players were reassigned today bringing the roster down to 31 athletes.
All three players were reassigned to the Avs AHL affiliate the Lake Erie Monsters. Again, there’s no real surprise here:
D Cameron Gaunce (AHL)
D Jonas Holos (AHL)
C Ryan Stoa (AHL)
The next preseason game is this Wednesday at home against the Los Angeles Kings. Puck drop is scheduled for 9:00pm EST (7:00pm MT).
