Colorado Avalanche

A congrats must go out to Matt Duchene who married his love over the weekend.

The Colorado Avalanche drafted Cale Makar fourth overall this year. This draft choice made history as the highest drafted played in the AJHL, ever. He’s going to attend University of Massachusetts in the fall.

The NHL released their “40 most eye-popping plays of 2016-17” list. The Colorado Avalanche appear a few times. Having the other team score on themselves counts as a win for them, right?

Wojtek Wolski is trying to make the most of his possible hockey career. After a horrible neck injury in 2016, he’s back playing in the KHL signing to play for another two years with Redstar.

The Rest of the Game

Its likely that the Avs are going to have yet another top-5 pick next summer, so its never too early to start looking at the top prospects for the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.

Since summer is time for fun, Jonathan Roy former QJHL player and son of Patrick Roy, is making a name for himself in the Canadian music scene. Two days ago he took the stage in front of an estimated 80,000 - 100,000 people. These folks were there to see the Backstreet Boys. Jonathan says the first concert he ever attended was with Patrick Roy attending the Backstreet Boys. Sorry folks, the article is in French.
