Film And Analysis: Why Ross Colton Will Be The New Swiss Army Knife For The Avalanche (+)



Ross Colton NHL Trade Avalanche

While Ryan Johansen is likely the most important addition the Colorado Avalanche made this summer, Ross Colton might be the one who ends up making the biggest impact.

With the loss of J.T. Compher to free agency, Jared Bednar will be looking for a new Swiss army knife up front who he can move around the lineup. There’s a very good chance Colton ends up being that guy.

I did things a little differently with this film room. I watched regular season and playoff games over the last two seasons, simply because I wanted to see Colton at both wing and center. In total, he played wing in 5 of them, and center in the other 4. That versatility might come in handy over the next few years.

In case you missed the previous three installments on Jonathan Drouin, Ryan Johansen, and Miles Wood, I’ll go through the film and analyze what I see.
