In an effort to round out the Avalanche-related content provided here at Mile High Hockey, I've recruited Jori (real name: Angelique Murray) to post here on a part-time basis. If you're unfamiliar with her work, she is THE all-knowing guru on the youngsters currently toiling in the minor and junior leagues that have been either drafted or signed by the Colorado Avalanche organization. She runs the peerless Colorado Avalanche Prospects blog and makes several posts there daily.
MHH is continuing to grow, and we want to keep our forward momentum by adding a well-respected and accomplished fan writer to the staff. And not only is she smart and a great writer, but Jori actually lives in the Denver area---the only MHH staffer to do so!
In the coming weeks, keep an eye out for her twice (or more)-weekly column on the exploits of the up-and-coming players in the Avalanche farm system and the junior/college leagues. And expect excellent draft coverage from her as well! The Entry Draft is about all the Avs have going for them these days, anyway.
Take a moment to welcome her aboard and wish her luck. We're all excited to have her on board and hope she decides to stay around for a while.
