Avalanche defense is set for the next 10-15 years with addition of Bowen Byram

That meant one thing: the best defenseman prospect in the draft was available, the only one to be projected to go on the top 10.

The Avalanche had the fourth pick, and Bowen Byram was still on the board. Not for long. They just couldn’t pass him up. That’s what everyone says about their first-round pick, right? But in this case, the Avs meant it.
