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".
