Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Your Colorado Avalanche come into tonight’s amateur draft holding the 4th pick overall and the possibilities are limitless, except for the 3 guys taken in front of them.

Avs Chief of Amateur Scouting Alan Hepple made the rounds earlier this week. if you need to kill some time before things get nutty, here he is on State Radio and then on the AvsCast. His big talking point about tonight is that they’ve got 4 guys targeted and they will get one of them assuming they hold on to the pick.

Best case for Colorado - First 3 picks are forwards

Worst case for Colorado - Miro Heiskanen & Cale ‘Brooks’ Makar are gone by #4

Just to refresh your memories, the first round happens this evening and rounds two through seven are tomorrow starting at 10am ET. We’ll have a new thread for our pick and a new GDT tomorrow morning for the good stuff.

Television coverage: 6:30pm ET on NBCSN, SportsNet, also on the corresponding apps if you’re mobile
