The Colorado Avalanche: News from around the NHL - April 3rd, 2014

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Teams are announcing their Masterton nominees.

The journey, said Paul Ranger, is not over.

There is still more room to grow, to get better, to continue developing as a player and as a person. But the Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman, who was named the team’s nominee for the 2014 Bill Masterton Trophy on Tuesday, which is awarded for ‘perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey,’ said he is pleased at how far he has come so far.

“Overall, I’d say it’s a success to be able to come back to the big team here and get to this level,” he said. “You look at yourself in the mirror and say, ‘You did it.’

An AHL'er took a slap shot to the face.  Warning, pictures are graphic.  Poor guy, speedy recovery!

Was it worth the assist?

Grand Rapids Griffins winger Mitch Callahan ate puck Wednesday night in a 6-1 win over the visiting Iowa Wild.

Look away NOW if squeamish – Callahan tweeted a photo of himself shortly after the incident.

It looked like he put a block of bottle rockets in his mouth, lit a fuse and clinched his jaw.
