Avs Phase 3 Training Camp

Jared Bednar not pleased with Avalanche effort in Saturday camp session



About halfway through Saturday’s on-ice session, Avalanche head coach Jared Bednar paused practice, called his players to center ice and made it very clear he was not too pleased with his team’s physicality nor its intensity. It was certainly a noted tonal change coming from a coach who generally exudes stoicism and composure.

Between the loud expletives, it was pretty easy to discern what Bednar was asking of his players — something to the effect of “you better start learning to check or we’re all going to be golfing sooner than we’d hoped,” albeit in more verbose and R-rated terms.
