The above picture is proof, that Avalanche players were, indeed, back on the ice today.
Practice resumed at Family Sports Center, and everyone was accounted for (aside from the still-sidelined Colin Wilson).
That included Joonas Donskoi, in a regular, full-contact sweater. We’ll wait for the official word after practice from coach Bednar, but it is assumed he will return to the lineup Saturday night in Philadelphia. Looks like Donskoi is back on a line with Kadri and Burakovsky.
I’ll have another story a bit later, with player quotes and stuff, but I did want to let all y’all know there is hockey again in Denver.
