TSN has a short blurb on Milan Hejduk staying an Avalanche member.

"It was a bad season last year, but I think this team has quite a potential if everybody gets healthy. I think it's going to be a different story. I'm still pretty positive for next year," Hejduk said in a conference call. "It was always my intention to play for the Avalanche as long as I can and as long as they're interested."

 

Jonas Holos is doing pretty Darn well at the IIHF Championships. With blurbs for the Canada- Russia game and the Finland - Norway game.

Jonas Holos from the Colorado Avalanche has 2 goals and 5 points on the blue line. Goalie Lars Haugen has a 2.48 goals-against average and .933 save percentage.

 

Another, more slightly in-depth, looking at the upcoming Russia-Canada game.

Forwards: John Tavares leads Canada and the tournament with nine points, which includes five goals in six games, and is followed by Jeff Skinner and Jason Spezza in scoring. Coach Ken Hitchcock's top minute getters up front have been Rick Nash, Spezza, James Neal, Andrew Ladd, Matt Duchene and Chris Stewart, which highlights just how much depth there is on this team.
