Past Avalanche Drafts (Round 5)

New, comments


Round 5. As we get further along into this, it seems clear that while the Avalanche have done poorly towards the top of the draft, they get much better at identifying (or developing) talent in later rounds. John-Michael Liles, Cody McCormick, Brad Richardson and Brent Johnson are all excellent.

Other than the appearance of Mikael Samuellson and Mike York, you can't find many faults with the Avs 5th round picks over the years.
