Colorado Avalanche Training Camp Observations

1 of 10

Day 1 of the Colorado Avalanche main training camp, and already players were displaying what kind of year they were going to have. For the most part, they all looked strong and ready to go — even the injured parties that head coach Patrick Roy listed yesterday to everyone’s consternation.

The Avalanche started by playing a little “trick” on attendees — who were in far greater number than on other days. Those who showed up early got treated to certain players taking the ice early, including Semyon Varlamov, Matt Duchene and the captain, Gabriel Landeskog.

During the training camp, players gave a hint of the season to come.
