Avs Select Travis Barron 191st Overall

The Avs finish the draft by selecting Travis Barron out of Ottawa (OHL). Barron contributed 37 points in 60 games for the 67's this past season.

Described as a hard-nosed player, Barron's offensive numbers have not been as productive as expected. This is taking into account that he was drafted third overall in the 2014 OHL Priority Selection Draft. Yet, Barron doesn't turn 18 until August, so there is still some hope his offensive game will develop.

Avs Select Nathan Clurman 161st Overall

In round six, the Avs pick up defenseman Nathan Clurman. Clurman, who was born in Boulder, CO, spent last season at the Culver Military Academy Prep, where he had 16 points in 20 games.

Clurman will play for Tri-City (USHL) this upcoming season and join Notre Dame (B10) in the fall of 2017.

Avs Select Adam Werner 131st Overall

With the departures of Sami Aittokallio and Roman Will over the last couple of years, and with the recent trade of Reto Berra, the Avs suddenly have an organizational depth issue in net. Therefore, it is of no surprise that the Avalanche would snag at least one goaltender in this weekend's draft.

Adam Werner, who is 6'5", suited up for Färjestad BK's junior team last season; posting a GAA of 2.49 and save percentage of .916.

Avs Select Josh Anderson 71st Overall

The Avs go defense in the third round with the selection of Josh Anderson from Prince George (WHL). More of a defensive defenseman, and reliable on the penalty kill, Anderson had just six points in in 36 games for the Cougars.

Avs Select Cam Morrison 40th Overall

The Avs opted for winger Cameron Morrison with their second round selection on Saturday. Morrision, who is heading to Notre Dame (B10) this fall, racked up 66 points in 60 games for Youngstown (USHL) this past season.

This selection shares some similarities to an Avs pick from last year, AJ Greer. He scored a league high eight game winning goals for the Phantoms last season.
