Dater’s Links: Alex Newhook to stay another year at Boston College



Avs prospect Alex Newhook

Keep washing those hands and staying indoors, folks. The sooner we all do this, the sooner we all get back to real life. Otherwise, we continue on with the surreal life. I can’t believe I haven’t seen ONE roll of TP at a store in the last two weeks almost.

Some hockey stuff:

Superstreak Bonus!
  • Avalanche prospect Alex Newhook, who was recently named the rookie of the year in Hockey East for Boston College, said he will return to the school for his sophomore year. That has been/was the plan all along, and the Avs knew long ago about that and are fine with it. I wrote this a few weeks ago, in fact.  Newhook, if things progress the way they have, will sign a pro contract with the Avs some time next year, after his BC season is done.
  • A second player with the Ottawa Senators has come down with the virus (
  • I’ve been told, via a reputable source, that a player from another team has tested positive. I have reached out to that team for confirmation, but have not received a reply yet. This team is not the Avalanche.
  • Happy 32nd birthday, Erik Johnson.
  • Players in the ECHL are out of luck when it comes to getting their normal paychecks for the rest of what would have been their regular season. (Hockey News)

Always appreciate the updates, Dater

Matt Briggle

Appreciate the update AD. Good decision by the Avs and Newhook. This will be a great chance for him to really dominate the league while working on all the details that will make him a good player in the NHL as well as physically filling out a bit more. He quite possibly make an impact next year after his college season ends hopefully with a national championship and Hobey Baker. For any of the Colorado folks out there who might be freaking out about Covid-19 and do not have insurance, the state has granted a special enrollment period through the… Read more »

Love ya, but please don’t flush your one wipe Charlie’s. 20+ years in municipal sewer business talking. Do not have twitter or would have replied there. They are especially good at clogging up grinders and pumps at lift stations.
