DENVER -- When forward Shawn Matthias makes his Colorado Avalanche debut Wednesday against the San Jose Sharks at Pepsi Center, he'll be facing two players -- defenseman Roman Polak and forward Nick Spaling -- who were teammates of his four days ago.
The Avalanche acquired Matthias from the Toronto Maple Leafs on Sunday for minor-league center Colin Smith and a fourth-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft.
