Welcome to the Mile High Hockey Lab! In this week’s episode, Adrian, Jackie, and Ezra discuss Valeri Nuchushkin’s standout performance to begin the new season, Georgiev’s performance against the New York Rangers, and what might be holding Alex Newhook back from taking that next step and becoming a bonafide 2C.
Jackie and Ezra think that giving Alex Newhook some time with Rantanen might shake him loose of his funk, and both agree that he needs to be shooting the puck more. Is J.T. Compher more suited for a winger role, and might he be a good linemate with Newhook? Rodrigues seems to be sinking into his position but is he the long-term answer?
Alex Newhook is yet to settle into the 2C role in Colorado. What can the Avs do to boost his confindence?— Mile High Hockey Lab (@MHH_LAB) October 31, 2022
Should he be paired up with Mikko Rantanen? @EzraParter doesn’t see that as an option with Landeskog out. #GoAvsGo pic.twitter.com/QBrW9YI3fE
Mikko Rantanen is on another tear to start the season. He might not get the attention he deserves, but Jackie explains why.
