Tuesday was moving day on the Avalanche roster as defenseman Kevin Connauton was recalled from the Colorado Eagles to take the roster spot vacated by Conor Timmins. With Ian Cole’s impending return much earlier than expected it remains to be seen how Jared Bednar plans to shake out the defense moving forward.

The Colorado Avalanche are making a great gesture offering free tickets to the upcoming game on Saturday October 12th against the Arizona Coyotes to all female youth hockey players. Let’s hope as many young ladies get out to the game as possible.

As always, Cale Makar is a popular in the media especially as content from his appearance at the NHL media tour gets released. His interview with Dan Rosen is now available on @TheRink podcast.

Speaking of Makar, a discussion of his chances in the Calder race along with other candidates from the Sporting News. Makar has a good start on his peers with two points in his first two games.

The Hockey News ranks forwards Alex Newhook, Sampo Ranta, Matt Stienburg and defenseman Drew Helleson among their top 100 NCAA prospects to watch this season.
