Cale Makar was such a breath of fresh air for the Avalanche in the playoffs once his NCAA season had ended. He jumped right into the NHL playoffs against his hometown team, looking like a five-year pro.
Bo Byram and his Vancouver Giants are primed for yet another deep WHL run. After a slow start to the season, the Giants have been one of the hottest teams down the stretch and look to be ‘back’.

Keep in mind: the WHL playoffs start March 27, with the Avs’ first-round playoff series not starting until April 7 or 8, most likely.
