Bo Byram must quarantine before joining Avs

Bo Byram

Bo Byram will board a plane for Denver on Thursday morning, after spending Wednesday at his parents’ home in British Columbia.

Once he touches down in the Mile High City, however, the top Avs defensive prospect will have to quarantine for a week, because of US-Canada Covid-19 regulations.

That news was broken today by Byram’s father, who appeared on a local B.C. radio station to talk about his son’s disappointment at Tuesday’s Canada loss to the U.S. in the gold medal game of the World Juniors in Edmonton. Click on the link in my tweet below to listen to the talk.

So, that means no Bo Byram on opening night against the Blues, but I don’t think we would have seen Bo Byram play that night anyway. think the earliest we’ll see Bo play a game for the Avs is on that four-game L.A.-Anaheim swing, Jan. 19-24 (I’ll be there, did I mention there’s an Avs Travel Tip Jar?), where the Avs will have to play four games in six days.

After that? That’s all still to be determined. I think Byram will be on the taxi squad for the full year, but it’s also possible he’ll spend some time with the Colorado Eagles, after all the new regulations are ironed out with their own return-to-play plan.

Byram isn’t eligible for the AHL is he? I thought North American born CHL players had to be 20 before playing in the AHL?

Not sure if it’s official but I think there’s a thing that if the certain CHL leagues don’t play they’re eligible. I think the player has to be 19 as of September though. Can’t remember exactly.

Man, what a game last night! Helleson with the shot that was redirected for the first goal. And Byram was super impressive, playing over 25 minutes.

Newhook has to head back to school with three gold winners from the US squad – Helleson, Boldy, and Knight. Brutal. But very glad that he has bounced back from his injury.

I was so impressed with the way Byram handled everything last night after losing. The emotion was genuine as were the feelings for his teammates after that long together in quarantine and all they went through. That kid has character and leadership in his core and is going to be a welcome addition in the Avs locker room as soon as he can get there.
