The Colorado Avalanche and the rest of the NHL just finished up the 2024 NHL Draft and now it is time to move forward. While free agency is just around the corner, the team just announced its developmental camp roster.

The roster can consist of any player, so long as their rights are not held by another team. This could include free agents.

There are some interesting and notable names on the roster this season. Of course, we have their draft picks, minus their two Russian goaltenders.

One of the things I love about the NHL is that they go from one huge event to another. It never seems to be a dull moment in the league.

Chris Romaine was a sixth-round pick by the Avalanche in 2022, a year in which they only made two selections.

Another player who was invited to the camp was Marek Hejduk. Hejduk is the son of former Colorado Avalanche star forward Milan Hejduk, who played for the team from 1998 through 2013.
