Colorado Avalanche Depth Chart - July 3, 2014

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

I thought it would be interesting to see where the organization stands after going through the 2014 draft and Free Agency. The Avs currently have 63 players where they own their rights or have them under contract. The left side of the depth chart is much deper than the right side, both defensively and on the wing. Center is an area of depth as well and I would expect many of the players listed as centers to play on the wing in Lake Erie. The Avs have 7 goaltenders in their system with 1 playing in Finland and 1 in the OHL.

Don't look too much into who is ranked over who. I tried to use the decider of who has played more pro games if I didn't know enough about a player. Most guys who have some NHL experience in some fashion are above guys with none, even if the younger player is a much better prospect. Players with an asterisk do not have contracts with the Avs, exlcuding RFA's.
