2016 NHL Draft: Colorado Avalanche Select Adam Werner No. 131

New, comments

A little short on goalie depth, the Avs select Swedish goalkeeper Adam Werner to fill the pipeline.

When Reto Berra was traded this week, the Colorado Avalanche goalie depth suddenly became a bit exposed. With the 131st overall pick, they drafted gigantic Swedish netminder Adam Werner to reload their arsenal.

Werner is a 6'5" and 200 pound 19-year-old and most certainly embodies the size of the modern NHL goalie. He hails from Mariestad, Sweden was a member of the SHL's Farjestad BK franchise last season.
