Colorado Avalanche Gameday: A golden and wild day

Colorado Avalanche Gameday: A golden and wild day

Photo by Michael Martin/NHLI via We see game action twice today for the first time since lifting the Cup. Day one of preseason for the Stanley Cup champion Colorado Avalanche will see them play two games today. And unfortunately, while we don’t get to see Cale Makar skate circles around opposing players twice in a day, he will be a participant in at least one of the two games today. One-half of the Avalanche squad will fly to the Twin Cities and face-off against division rival Minnesota Wild. As always, Jared Bednar was not keen to share who would play where but...

Five burning questions as training camp begins

Five burning questions as training camp begins

Photo by Dustin Bradford/Icon Sportswire via Defending the Stanley Cup starts now. It was a short summer for the Stanley Cup champion Colorado Avalanche but they’ll take that every year. Despite losing a few players to free agency, there wasn’t much drama and an enormous piece of business got taken care of earlier this week with Nathan MacKinnon’s mega contract extension. The core is in place and the Avalanche hope to begin their quest on a repeat starting with this training camp but there are still a few unanswered questions to watch for as the practices and...

Report: Alex Galchenyuk to join Avalanche on PTO

Photo by Michael Martin/NHLI via There had to be one PTO.
