Found November 06, 2013 on The Hockey House:
The ECHL’s Colorado Eagles have traded goaltender Trevor Cann to the Florida Everblades in exchange for future considerations. Cann was drafted by the Colorado Avalanche with the 49th overall pick in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, but never really panned out to the potential he could have reached. He began his professional career with the Lake Erie Monsters of the AHL during the 2009–10 season but was assigned to the Avalanche’s Central Hockey [...]

Avalanche look to match Senators record of 13 wins in 14 games

The Colorado Avalanche can make history tonight if they beat the Nashville Predators at Pepsi Center. A victory would give them a 13-1-0 record to match the 2007-08 Ottawa Senators as the only team in NHL history to begin the season with 13 wins in the first 14 games. Coach Patrick Roy and his players are only worried about winning the game. “We cannot control what people think...

Colorado Avalanche top NHL power rankings

Nothing could stop the Colorado Avalanche from crushing their competitions. They plowed ahead despite injuries and the unfortunate arrest of goaltender Semyon Varlamov after his alleged incident of domestic violence.By winning 12 of their first 13 games, they went a long way toward securing a playoff before the season’s first quarter. As the Denver Post noted, merely playing .500...

Nathan MacKinnon moved back to center; Matt Duchene doesn’t practice

The news out of Avalanche practice Thursday: Ryan Wilson has a back injury and highly doubtful for Friday’s game with the Flames. He’ll be seen by Dr. Parker this afternoon and we might know more then. It’s just the latest in a string of injuries that have felled Wilson the last couple years. Matt Duchene didn’t practice today because of a bruised foot, the result of blocking...

Taking Notice Of Matt Duchene

from Rory Boylen of The Hockey News, Matt Duchene is really exploding as a player. “No duh,” right? Everything he’s done so far this young season has legitimized his case for inclusion on Canada’s Olympic team. The Avalanche are benefitting from having such an explosive and productive player, who has helped fuel a 12-2-0 start for a team with middling expectations...

Did Colorado trade Downie because of Landeskog incident?

There might be more to last week’s Steve Downie-for-Max Talbot trade than meets the eye. In an interview with Sportsnet’s FAN 960 Calgary, CBC’s Elliotte Friedman reports that Colorado might’ve dumped Downie because of a preseason incident with team captain Gabriel Landeskog. “Obviously, people thought it was a weird trade,” Friedman explained. “You rarely see a first...

Varlamov to start again for Avalanche, as team sticks with embattled goalie

The Avalanche continues to keep the faith in Semyon Varlamov — on and off the ice. The Russian goaltender — arrested last week on charges of domestic violence and kidnapping — will be back in net Wednesday night when the 12-1 Avs host the Nashville Predators at the Pepsi Center. Varlamov was asked after practice Tuesday if he was confident his name will be cleared eventually...

Avalanche defenseman Ryan Wilson hurts back against Predators

The Colorado Avalanche battled back last night against the Nashville Predators after falling behind by two goals, but ultimately lost the game and in the process had their six game winning streak snapped. It also appears they may have lost their defenseman Ryan Wilson to an injury. Colorado’s head coach Patrick Roy told reporters afterward that it looked as though Wilson may have...

Wilson’s four-point night spurs Preds to victory

Coming into the night, the Colorado Avalanche had allowed just 19 goals all season. You wouldn’t know it when watching this game, however. In front of 14,043 inside Pepsi Center in Denver, the Nashville Predators served the Avs just their second loss of the season, beating them 6-4. Colorado has now allowed 25 goals this year, 28 percent of which have come against the Preds. Goaltender Carter...

Flames-Avalanche Preview

The Colorado Avalanche have become accustomed to winning, so they're eager to bounce back after their worst defensive performance of the season. Considering how Calgary has played on the road, the Flames might be rather accommodating.

Top Goalie So Far

A few weeks ago I picked Semyon Varlamov of the Colorado Avalanche as the top goalie so far in the season.  Varlamov was off to a great start but he has had some off-ice problems.  He was arrested for domestic violence.  Perhaps this is straining his play.  His numbers have fallen in his limited play since the arrest.  Thus it is time to pick a new top goalie.  My pick is...
