#7: Rendulic is Almost Ready
Croatian-born rookie Borna Rendulic is a big forward – 6-foot-3, 194 pounds. He’s definitely not a crash and bang type of player, but he’s strong on skates and on the puck. He continues to show his finisher’s instinct. He still needs to add a little grit — a month or two with the Lake Erie Monsters should suffice. However, he’s very close, and he could very well wear a Colorado Avalanche uniform at some point this season.
