Tyson Jost Returns For First Time, Reflects On Avalanche Days (+)
Tyson Jost became a fan favorite when he was an Avalanche player. He didn’t score many goals, but he became one of the best penalty killers on the team. Drafted 10th overall in 2016, Jost was a highly-touted player out of Canada and the University of North Dakota. He was thought to be an offensive spark that the Avalanche could use in coming years, but it turned out that his real game was much different. Last year, on March 15th, right as the trade deadline fast approached, Jost was traded for Nico Sturm. He would have to watch all his friends win the Stanley Cup without him in June. We got a chance to talk to Tyson Jost today after the morning skate about his thoughts on Colorado and playing in Buffalo.
