It’s been nearly two decades since an Avalanche player was on the cover of an NHL video game, but it will be happening again this year, as Cale Makar was announced as the cover athlete for NHL 24.

I went in with an open mind, and I came away more impressed than I thought I would be. Miles Wood is pure chaos, and I think I like it. (+)

On Tuesday, we’ll take a look at some other names from the past with the Avalanche and where they’re playing now.

Around The NHL

Everyone kind of knew it was coming, but David Krejci made it official, retiring from the NHL after 16 seasons. With both Krejci and Patrice Bergeron retiring, the Bruins are in a world of hurt at center right now. Will they try to make a move before the season starts?

Tragic news out of Toronto, as former first round pick Rodion Amirov passed away at the age of 21. Two years ago, the talented young forward was diagnosed with a brain tumor and he wasn’t really able to play since then. Just terrible to lose someone at such a young age who had a bright future ahead of them.

Here’s a lovely tribute to him from his agent, Dan Milstein.
