A lovely photo of the top line and their dads, taken after practice in Nashville.
Of course while the Avs were visiting the Country Music Hall of Fame they had to take some time out to write a country song.
The full version was posted later in the week and is definitely worth a watch.

Tyson Barrie, who has missed three games due to injury so far, was back at practice in a regular jersey. It’s been confirmed he won’t play against the Red Wings but has travelled with the team and it sounds hopeful that he’ll be ready to play against Pittsburgh on Tuesday.
Prior to the game in Detroit some of the players were quizzed on their knowledge about the long standing rivalry between the Avalanche and the Red Wings. Colin Wilson had a lot to offer on this subject.
J.T. Compher was at least playing attention last time the team was in Detroit, which is evidently more than Colin did.
The Avalanche are now on the road for the next week, which is really going to put them to the test. We’ll be back to look at the best social media posts from their time on the road.
