They Said It...
“The third goal in the Calgary game I got knocked over when I wasn’t expecting it and it led to the goal. I wouldn’t quite say I’m fully an NHL player yet. I’m in the NHL, but I’m not a full NHL player. I haven’t earned that yet. But if anything, I think that would be my ‘Welcome to the NHL’ moment so far.”
-Rookie defenseman Cameron Gaunce, discussing his first few NHL contests

Tuesday’s 2-1 shootout loss to the San Jose Sharks marked forward Jay McClement’s 242nd consecutive game played. McClement has dressed in all 82 games during each of the last two seasons and has missed only two games in the last five years. Even if he appears in each of Colorado’s final 18 contests, he will actually only skate in 80 combined games this season because the Avalanche had played two more contests than the Blues at the time of his acquisition.
This week on Avalanche All Access, hosts Kyle Keefe and Julie Browman hang out at the Avalanche practice facility to get a look at the newest Avs players. Kyle talks with new Avalanche defenseman Erik Johnson, and Julie gets to know new Avalanche forward Jay McClement. Plus, Mike Haynes talks with head coach Joe Sacco, and Peter McNab talks about dealing with the trade deadline in his “McNab Minute.”
