Colorado Avalanche Call-Up: Andrew Agozzino

This may be the first player who comes as a surprise. But is it really? Andrew Agozzino was the Lake Erie Monsters’ 2014-15 top scorer, as he recorded 30 goals and 64 points. In his first game in 2015-16, he had a goal and an assist as a top-line forward and assistant captain.

At 5-foot-10, Agozzino isn’t the biggest forward, which is probably his main problem. However, he does work hard and plays with a lot of grit. Unfortunately, he hasn’t got a chance in the NHL yet. In three years as a pro, Agozzino has only played one game (last season) where he recorded one assist.

Roy wanted his team to get bigger and he worked on that over the offseason. Agozzino doesn’t really fit in that plan, but he may get a chance if he keeps producing like he did last season.
