For New Player Agent Matt Calvert, Avalanche In SCF A Bittersweet Experience (+)
Matt Calvert is a happy and, finally, healthier man. He’s got two young, healthy boys and a happy home life with his wife, Courtney. He just started his own player agency business – Cal Sports Management – and already has several new clients. But the popular former Colorado Avalanche player, who retired last year because of a bad back, admits that it’s been a bittersweet experience seeing the Avs advance to the Stanley Cup Finals.
“I’m super jealous I’m not out there with them. I was sitting there in my basement the other night watching them win (Game 4 of Western Conference finals) and almost in tears,” said Calvert, who played with the Avs from 2018-21 and was hugely popular with teammates and fans for his toughness and leadership. “But it was obviously great to see and I’m real happy for them. I hope to get down there for either Game 1 or 2 actually.”
