News and Notes

The Wednesday evening transaction that sent previously unsigned defenseman Stefan Elliott to the Arizona Coyotes, leaves Freddie Hamilton as the only remaining unsigned RFA. Hamilton is not a high profile player by any means, but one would expect his situation to be resolved prior to veterans reporting for physicals next week.


The Avalanche will open their three-day rookie camp on Monday, September 14, 2015. My plan is to attend rookie camp and hopefully provide updates via Twitter (@Jori5280) and of course this blog. Scheduling (aka real life events) prevents me from attending the main camp next Friday and Saturday. Fear not, there will be plenty of great coverage by some wonderful Avs bloggers and fans that I will provide links.


2015 Training Camp Dates


The European hockey leagues have opened up play and now the Canadian Hockey League is set to start their season with the QMJHL out of the gate this evening. I'm still tinkering with the format of my daily game updates, but those will be back with full force this season (with more of an emphasis on CHL and NCAA games).

Here's to another great hockey season!!!
