Colorado Avalanche Draft Jean-Christophe Beaudin with 71th Overall

  The Avs third round pick of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft is in, and the right-shooting center Jean-Christophe Beaudin is headed back to Colorado.  He scored 14 goals and 39 assists (53 points) in 68 games for the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies of the QMJHL last year.

Get to Know J.T. Compher

  While Nikita Zadorov and Mikhail Grigorenko are certainly the biggest pieces headed to Colorado in return for Ryan O’Reilly and Jamie McGinn, make no mistake, J.T. Compher is a valuable and piece of this Avalanche blockbuster trade. J.T. Compher is a 5-foot-11, 184 pound forward who can play both center and wing.

And just like that, it’s over. Ryan O’Reilly is reportedly being shipped to the Buffalo Sabres in a blockbuster deal, thus ending the saga between him and Avalanche management over the past couple of seasons.

McGinn’s undergoes surgery; Everberg activated

Jamie McGinn underwent successful back surgery on Wednesday, and the Colorado Avalanche don’t expect to get the 26-year-old forward back this season. McGinn, who has four goals and six points in 19 games this season, will have one year left on his two-year contract with the Avs at the end of the season.

Avs should consider moving O’Reilly

In the past, I’ve been very vocal about my belief that the way the Colorado Avalanche manage their forward lines is not a recipe for long-term success. I won’t rehash all the reasons why I believe that to be the case, but to put it in its simplest terms there are just very few teams with enough talent to be able to score consistently across three lines. Plus, even if you are...
