Avs place Hunwick on waivers

The Colorado Avalanche placed defenseman Matt Hunwick on waivers to make room for fellow blueliner Ryan Wilson the Denver Post reports. The 28-year-old hasn’t appeared in a regular season game for the Avs so it probably shouldn’t be too shocking that he was the odd man out. He collected six assists in 43 games last season for Colorado and began his time with the organization...

Nathan MacKinnon’s new number: 29

Well I guess Eric Messier won’t be getting his number retired and I guess Matt Hunwick didn’t want to give up No. 22. While I don’t know for sure about the latter Nathan MacKinnon will not wear his former number 22 – currently worn by Hunwick – with the Avalanche his rookie season. MacKinnon announced on his Twitter feed today that he’ll wear No. 29. The last Avs player...

Postgame Avs-Blue Jackets: Hunwick scores. No, really

AP/Paul Vernon COLUMBUS, OHIO – It felt good to put Matt Hunwick on video tonight, talking about a game in which he not only played, but scored. In his 64th game as a member of the Avs, Hunwick finally put a puck in the net in the Avs’ 5-0 win over Columbus. Hunwick has drawn praise from everyone around the team for having a good attitude from long stretches of inactivity. Here’s...

Aaron Musick: Avs bury the Blue Jackets

If the real Blue Jackets were like the Columbus Blue Jackets, kids in America would be learning about the Confederate States Constitution. The Colorado Avalanche buried the Blue Jackets 5-0 with, in the ultimate insult, Matt Hunwick getting the final goal on a breakaway. David Jones had two goals and an assist; newly-acquired Steve Downie had his first goal and assist as an...

Question answered on Hunwick

A lot of people out there seem to think I was ripping on poor Matt Hunwick for his play last night. Not the case. As I thought I made clear, the criticism had more to do with playing him out of place, at forward. Not his fault there. I also said, in the blog, that I was hoping to have a question answered as to why the Avs couldn’t/didn’t get a forward in the lineup last night...

Thoughts on Avs, other stuff, starting with a Matt Hunwick question At first, I was going to write a rip job tonight, starting with the Avs’ choice to play 5-11 defenseman Matt Hunwick as a forward in tonight’s 3-2 loss to the Calgary Flames, otherwise known as The Team The Avalanche Will Never Beat Again. Then I took a look at the stat sheet of Hunwick – 4:53 played, no shots, no points, no hits, one missed shot – and...
