Colorado Avalanche Report: Final Practice

3 of 5

Regular Drills

The Colorado Avalanche regularly practice usual hockey plays, of course. Just because there are only three games left in this season doesn’t mean they’re going to eschew the bread and butter drills. Indeed, coach Roy has said on more than one occasion that the focus is developing good habits that hopefully carry through to next season.

During today’s practice, the Avalanche worked on their one-timers:

They also scrimmaged. During one scrimmage, some scrum developed in the neutral zone.

Coach Roy said that next training camp, the Avs are not going to do those big, formal scrimmages like they did this preseason. Presumably, though, such informal scrimmages will always be a part of their practice.
