NHL Trade Deadline

While the 2016 NHL Trade Deadline can be described as a dud, it turned out to be a relatively busy one for the Avalanche. Here are the significant moves the organization has made within the past few days:

February 21st

To Colorado:

Shawn Matthias

To Toronto:

Colin Smith
2016 4th Round Pick

February 29th

To Colorado:

Mikkel Boedker

To Phoenix:

Alex Tanguay
Conner Bleackley
Kyle Wood

To Colorado:

Eric Gelinas

To New Jersey:

2017 3rd Round Pick

To Colorado:

Taylor Beck

To New York Islanders:

Marc-Andre Cliche

Besides the two draft picks, the Avs have decided to part ways with two unsigned 2014 draft picks in Conner Bleackley and Kyle Wood. Joe Sakic commented on the club's intention not to sign the former first round pick Bleackley, who seemed to got off on the wrong foot with Avs head coach Patrick Roy upon arrival at his first training camp in September of 2014.
