LOVELAND – Aside from the cardboard cutouts of fans occupying a few of the lower-level seats, it was an empty Budweiser Events Center on Tuesday evening. The scene may seem unexciting, but it was anything but for Alex Newhook, who finally was able to make his professional debut with the Colorado Eagles on Tuesday night.

Due to a delay at the immigration office in transferring his visa from student status to a work visa, Newhook had to wait patiently to make his professional debut with the Colorado Eagles after signing his entry-level contract with the Avalanche on March 31.

“It’s been a long wait watching the games,” Newhook said with a smile on Tuesday night after finally making his pro debut. “They’ve just been kind of saying to stay ready, we don’t know when it’s going to come in or when you’re going to be able to play. I’ve just been trying my best to stay with it and stay positive while waiting to get into the lineup.”
