CHN Avalanche Prospects Watch: Bo Byram is buzzing again in BC
Bo Byram is what I call, a hockey specimen. A lean-mean skating, scoring machine. A freakish athlete with HUGE upside that I just want to sink Dater’s falsies into. The Avs’ fourth overall pick from the 2019 draft is currently tearing up the WHL with the Vancouver Giants and from what I’ve unearthed, he’s putting himself into some elite company of his own.
His season so far:
Starting Off, Only As Bo Knows
Byram and the Giants didn’t exactly start off hot this season. But not too bad, either. Byram was what I’ll call “Robot” Bo over the first 11 games, collecting 12 points (two goals and 10 assists) and seeing Vancouver go 5-6-0 as a team. He was still ever-present in transition, causing chaos with crisp breakout passes and, as always, trying to find ways to score. This was the Byram the Avs’ fans had come to expect and were hoping for. Even on a team that lost some senior talent over the off-season, the expectations were that Byram, 2020 first-round hopeful Justin Sourdiff and the same core of youth would be enough to sustain Vancouver.
