The boys got some time in with the dogs

by Nicole Kramer / ColoradoAvalanche.com

The Jr. Avalanche practiced early this morning after a late loss last night.

With the next few days free of games, Coach Klee took advantage of an opportunity to hit the ice. Traveling to a local town outside of Quebec City for practice, the boys skated for an hour and a half before Klee added an extra incentive to the routine end-of-practice shootout competition; the winner would receive a Matt Duchene autographed hockey puck.

The shootout lasted a few rounds before Evan Criswell came out on top with the final goal. According to forward Boston Crone, "the shootout was fun and made the boys work more for it since the prize was a signed Matt Duchene puck".

Similar to a typical NHL schedule, the Jr. Colorado Avalanche hit the ice early for a morning skate before its first tournament game later that night.

Right wing Mason Ripley described the practice as, "a chance to get our legs under us before the game tonight. It was important to get ready for the game, especially after our long journey to Quebec. After lunch, we went back to the hotel to rest. I took a pre-game nap, just like a professional NHL player would do."

One of the distinct qualities of the Quebec International Pee-Wee Tournament is the opportunity to meet players from all over the world, and the Colorado Avalanche organization designed unique pins for the pee-wee players to trade with other teams.

"Trading pins is really cool because it gives us the opportunity to meet and talk to players from other teams," said defenseman Dominick Pharris. "Today I traded pins with a Detroit team and one from Italy."
