The Jr. Avs practice before checking out Carnaval de Québec

by Rui Encarnacao / ColoradoAvalanche.com

Thursday brought the Jr. Avalanche Pee-Wee team its first full day of activities in Quebec City. The team started out with a high intensity one-hour practice at a local rink just 20 minutes outside of downtown. Before heading to the rink, the players got to eat their first home-cooked meals with their new billet families.

"It was good to finally get out there with the team. We were pretty fast going up and down the ice and Coach Kibby had us working on the little things," goaltender Derek Wood said. "Getting pucks behind the net, getting them deep and tape to tape passes."

Postgame Wrap-Up: Toninato's First Goal Sets Tone

Fourth line makes impact in Avalanche win over Jets

by Ron Knabenbauer @RonKnab / ColoradoAvalanche.com

After not being able to find the back of the net in 37 games during his rookie NHL season, it took Dominic Toninato just one to find that sweet twine in his sophomore campaign.

Toninato scored his first career NHL goal in his season debut and sparked the Colorado Avalanche to a 4-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday at Bell MTS Place.

"You get a guy like that, that is coming in, and he's trying to prove himself. We needed that first goal," said Avs head coach Jared Bednar. "We needed to try and play with the lead and get some confidence. Our guys were really focused, but then to be able to get that goal from a guy like Toni, I think our bench got some juice out of that and the rest of our lineup followed suit."
