Evan Rodrigues got into town on Thursday night, and by the next day was on the ice with some of his new Colorado Avalanche teammates. By Saturday, he got himself a new car and soon, when his wife, Christie and sons Grayson and Noah arrive in a few days from back East, they’ll start to do some looking around for a place to live.
“The last couple of days, it’s definitely been a whirlwind,” Rodrigues said in a phone conversation with Colorado Hockey Now. “But, in a good way. This is a beautiful city.”
