The Colorado Avalanche remain undefeated in the regular season. We look at the team’s social media highlights of the past week.
The Colorado Avalanche had a quiet start to the week, with a few days off after their win against the Minnesota Wild. The team started the week with a day of hard work signing items for the team to give away as prizes or to donate to local charities to air with their fundraising.
Andre Burakovsky looks delighted by the day’s activity.
The next day the team were back on the ice for practice. While photos from practice are always interesting, this time we were treated to some video of a little skills competition between the players. Things like this are always fun to watch. The players are competitive by nature and this is a little different to a standard drill.
#TysonTuesday is a little different now that there is only one Tyson on the team. Tyson Barrie may be gone but he’s not forgoten.
Ahead of the Avalanche’s second annual Girl’s Hockey Night the team held an all-girls street hockey event and offered complimentary tickets to all female youth players.
The new episode of the Avalanche’s official podcast, Odd Man Rush, dropped on Wednesday with Ryan Graves making an appearance. I learned a lot about Canadian geography from listening to this.
There was a lot of fun content to fill the time between games, including this incredibly accurate impression of Gabriel Landeskog.
After being a healthy scratch for the first two games Colin Wilson returned to the lineup, and maintained his commitment to doing all locker room interviews without a shirt.
Possibly the most divisive tweet this week came on Thursday when the Avalanche held a press conference to discuss the upcoming Stadium Series game which will be held in February. Discussion turned to the weather and the Avs social media team tweeted their thoughts on the matter which started a heated discussion.
On Friday the team held their annual Meet the Team event for season ticket holders. Of course there was shenanigans.
After a successful Girls Hockey Night last season the event returned for a second year. It’s very encouraging to see the Avalanche channeling energy into supporting women’s hockey at a grass roots level and I’m glad to see that last year’s even went well enough for the team to do it again this year.
And with an overtime win against the Coyotes the Avalanche remain undefeated at the end of their homestand. A very positive start to the season.
The Colorado Avalanche will now embark on their first road trip of the season, playing the Washington Captials on Monday, the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday, the Florida Panthers on Friday and the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday.
