2015 NHL Draft: Top 5 Avalanche 4th Round Picks

1 of 6

Barring any transactions, the Colorado Avalanche have six picks at the 2015 NHL Draft, having traded away their fifth rounder to the Montreal Canadians in the trade of P.A. Parenteau for Daniel Briere. In the fourth round the Avalanche have #101.

Let’s face it, more often than not the fourth round is a crap shoot. Players that go that late in the draft usually end up as depth players at best. Many never even make it into the NHL. Forward Brad Malone and goalie Sami Aittokallio are both fourth rounders who played a few games for the Avs, but those aren’t exactly raging success stories.

That said, a pick is a pick. Let’s see who the Colorado Avalanche might select with their fourth round pick at the 2015 NHL Draft.
