It’s game day! (kinda)
This morning, the Avs will take this ice at DU’s Magness Arena in the Annual Burgundy & White scrimmage. Fans will have a chance to get out and see their team in a full game situation for the first time this season. Apparently, there are still a number of tickets available anywhere from $10-$25. Check out the DU site if you want to grab a pair.

After only two days of camp, coach Bednar lets us in on how he feels so far.
In case you missed it, we found out a few days ago that the Avalanche would be returning to the #WhyNotUs marketing campaign they used in 2013-14. It was the season of Nathan MacKinnon’s Calder trophy and the last time the Avs made the playoffs - the hope is that the campaign can bring some luck back to the team. [Denver Post]
