IRVINE, Calif. – It was a fun scene in the Avalanche dressing room after their Rookie Showcase win over Vegas.
You know what the difference is between this Avs rookie/prospects group than so many other recent ones? They know they’re pretty good, the majority of them. They know they have a real good chance to play in the NHL, the majority of them. They have a bit of swagger, some of them.
Bo Byram definitely has swag.
I just couldn’t get over how good he was today. Yeah, yeah, I know: it’s a damn rookie showcase game in the suburbs of Anaheim, don’t get too overexcited Dater.
