After a very controversial first round, the Colorado Avalanche went back to the war room on Saturday, selecting seven more players to fill positions of need.
Here are the newest members of the Colorado Avalanche organization:
(1) Joey Hinson C
(2) Calvin Pickard G
(3) Michael Bournival LW
(4) Stephen Silas D
(5) Sami Aittokallio G
(6) Troy Rutkowski D
(7) Luke Walker RW
(7) Luke Moffatt C
Unlike last year, none of these picks are expected to make the roster for the upcoming season, thus making this draft difficult to judge at face value. Many of these selections won’t reveal their promise for at least two more years.
Mile High Hockey has posted a comprehensive scouting report on all of these picks.
