Two wins and one loss. Twelve goals in the final two games. For the Colorado Avalanche top prospects that participated in the Rookie Showcase in Scottsdale, Ariz., it was a very nice last couple of games in the trio of contests against Los Angeles, Anaheim and San Jose.
Avs win 7-4 today against the Sharks, overcoming a 4-2 deficit with five straight goals. Andreas Wingerli, on a short-handed goal in the third period with a little more than two minutes left, was the hero. That goal broke a 4-4 tie.
Wingerli, a 24-year-old Swede signed to a contract in the offseason, could be an early call-up kind of player for the Avs this season – and maybe there’s an outside shot he could make the club out of regular training camp (more on that below).
