The Colorado Avalanche are over halfway through their five game road trip. We look back at the team’s social media highlights of the week.
The Colorado Avalanche started the week with a day off, which was the perfect time for the media team to post some highlights from the Mile High Dreams Gala. There were many excellent suits on display.
Andre Burakovsky did a fantastic job as this year’s team reporter. He brought the hard hitting news, covering topics like haircuts, golf, and shrimp.
The next day the team took to the road, with Winnipeg being the first stop. Since Winnipeg is notoriously cold the team made sure they were wrapped up warm. Mark Barberio looks like he’s stepped straight out of an 80s cop movie. It’s a good look for him.
Who else did this when they were a kid and it was cold?
The media team posted the first in a new video series, which we saw some snippets of during media day, where the players have to talk about a subject without saying ‘ummm’. Some of them did well, others less so.
J.T. Compher appears to be developing an interest in photography. This was his first attempt at a portrait photo.
It’s become something of a tradition to venture out to the coldest intersection in North America when the team is in Winnipeg.
The media team gave a shoutout to the Altitude crew for venturing out into the cold to film this feature, but they deserve a shoutout too for also venturing out to take photos and videos for social media.
Pavel Francouz suffered an injury during the game in Winnipeg. The team is really suffering at the moment with three players out long term, and more out short term. All you can do in these situations is try and keep your sense of humor.
The Avalanche’s radio broadcaster, Conor McGahey, has a fantastic sense of humor and I always enjoy listening to him when I am able. This call was a classic.
Ryan Graves can be a man of many words, but sometimes you just need to be succinct.
Andre Burakovsky has quickly become a media team favourite. He loves the camera, and it loves him right back.

Who needs context?
Burakovsky’s relationship with the camera strikes again.
Compher’s attempts as a photographer continue. I have to say he’s not bad at it.
Staring at the camera seems too be a trend that is spreading.
Nikita Zadorov joined the team in Vancouver after missing 3 games due to a broken jaw. Of course he went straight back to being a menace, and annoying the media team, so he’s clearly feeling okay.
No matter where he is, no matter what he’s doing, Burakovsky knows where the camera is.
Fight menace with menace.
It didn’t take long for Zadorov to get his revenge, however.
You know it’s a good gif when the media team says it’s their favorite. It’s nice to Nathan MacKinnon smiling.

The Colorado Avalanche have two more games on the road before ending the week back in Denver to play the Toronto Maple Leafs. This will be Tyson Barrie‘s first game back in Denver since being traded during the summer and it promises to be an emotional one. We’ll be back next week with more social media highlights.
