The Avs

@Rudo3 is back with another review. Today’s topic is recently-signed forward Matt Nieto. [Mile High Hockey]

Revisiting the Ryan O’Reilly trade. “Things got more dramatic when the Calgary Flames signed O’Reilly, then a restricted free agent, to an offer sheet that the Avs immediately matched.” [The Hockey Writers]

The Prospects

Top 25 Under 25:

#4: Tyson Jost. “Jost’s calling card is his hockey IQ - especially on the offensive side of the puck. He is a smart player that has tremendous vision and the ability to make his linemates better.” [Mile High Hockey]

After losing the San Antonio Rampage affiliation to the St. Louis Blues, the Colorado Avalanche will be moving Colorado Eagles of the ECHL up to the AHL, becoming the 31st franchise in the league. [FanRag Sports]
