Just 15 minutes after word began to spread that Tatar was on the ice with the Avalanche, the organization made his one-year contract official.
So, what can Tatar bring to the Avalanche this coming season? I have my thoughts, which I’ll have up tomorrow, but I wanted to share someone else’s opinion.
For further insight, I spoke to an Eastern Conference scout, the same one who spoke to me about their other pickups this summer from the East. After all, the 32 year old forward has spent the last five seasons of his career out East, playing for the New Jersey Devils and Montreal Canadiens, so they’ve seen Tatar play plenty.
