It was a typical Sunday night in a Boston University dorm room for Shane Bowers.
Well, it was until he found out he was involved in a mid-season, three-team trade and he was now a part of the Colorado Avalanche organization.
The Avs acquired the young forward as well as Samuel Girard, Andrew Hammond, Vladislav Kamenev and three draft picks in the deal that saw Matt Duchene go to the Ottawa Senators and Kyle Turris to the Nashville Predators on Nov. 5.
"A couple of my buddies on my team at BU, we were sitting in the dorm, I think we were watching a movie or something," he said of what he was doing when the trade occurred. "We saw on twitter that Duchene had been traded. He left the ice, and actually the guy I was with was Nashville property and we saw it was a three-way deal. We were joking around saying, 'Imagine if we were all swapped for each other.'
