Another player who needs to make a splash in the playoffs is Tyson Jost. The reasoning for the young forward is similar as for Nikita Zaodorov — he needs to show his place on the team.
Even more so than Zadorov, though, Jost has a place on the team. He’s younger and fits in perfectly with the team’s style of play. The problem has been he hasn’t developed as quickly as some people — especially fans — have liked.
That said, the forward was on a tear right before the season went on pause. What’s more, he’s shown a knack for the playoffs. He has three goals and two assists in the playoffs so far for the Avalanche.
