AVALANCHE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Avalanche prospect Tyson Jost doesn’t play nice

The Avalanche’s top prospect had an incredible evening for UND last night. Ok, I think it’s safe to say Tyson Jost has recovered from the injuries he suffered from running into a goal post last month. The 18-year-old center, and top Avalanche prospect, was on fire last night for the University of North Dakota, tallying one assist and two goals, including the spectacular game...

Game 59 Preview: Avalanche @ Predators

After another close home loss, the Avs (16-39-3) return to the road in Nashville (28-22-9). This is not a season of positives, but maybe it's getting better. The last five games the Avs have played have been 2 goal games or less, by far the longest streak of close games for the Avalanche this season. Despite the close games, the Avs are still losing. The results aren't there, but...

Avalanche blueliner Erik Johnson is back in burgundy during practice

It’s been a rough year all around for the Colorado Avalanche. They currently are the owners of the worst overall record in the NHL at 16-39-3 for just 35 points. The next closest team is the Arizona Coyotes, who are 14 points better. Seemingly the only breaks they are catching are the bones of their players (they’ll miss you, Nikita Zadorov). Yet, with a cup-half-full mentality...

The Ugly, the Bad and the Good from the past week with the Avalanche

  I was all set to write a more optimistic column about the Colorado Avalanche this week until the news of Nikita Zadorov’s injury broke Monday. It seems best to mix things up and get the worst out of the way up front, as there is no denying Zadorov was one of the few bright spots this season. His injury definitely casts some long shadows on what remains of a challenging season...
