This past week, the Colorado Avalanche wrapped up their preseason schedule, finishing the fake season with a few losses. The results don’t matter, but the ending to the final game was not ideal.
At CHN, we had a great chat with Ross Colton about having an increased role in Colorado, and took a look at the strong start for Jonathan Drouin.
Here’s a look back at what you might have missed the previous week at CHN, and a peak at what’s coming.
Fredrik Olofsson talked about playing center after he seemed to cement his status as the 4C favorite.
