The Colorado Avalanche announced the 36-man roster for its annual development camp on Monday, which includes all eight players that were selected this past weekend at the 2019 NHL Draft in Vancouver.

Colorado's 2019 draft class includes two first-round selections in defenseman Bowen Byram (No. 4) and forward Alex Newhook (No. 16). The Avalanche also drafted forwards Matthew Steinburg (No. 63), Alex Beaucage (No. 78), Sasha Mutala (No. 140) and Luka Burzan (No. 171), defenseman Drew Helleson (No. 47) and goaltender Trent Miner (No. 202).

The Avalanche's annual camp begins on Tuesday with medical and physical testing before the players hit the ice at the team's practice facility, Family Sports Center, for the first of three skating days on Wednesday. There will be a morning and afternoon session on Wednesday while Thursday will have one on-ice practice in the afternoon.

The players will have their final session at Family Sports on Friday morning and will then head north for a 3-on-3 game in the evening at EPIC's (Edora Pool Ice Center) blue arena in Fort Collins.

The camp will wrap up with team activities in Northern Colorado on Saturday. All on-ice sessions are free and open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis.
