    While the majority of the Colorado Avalanche prospects are playing professional hockey for the Lake Erie Monsters or Denver Cutthroats, recently drafted players have been sent back to their junior teams in the CHL.



    The Avalanche may not be represented in the QMJHL but their players in the WHL and OHL are highly touted and giving fans plenty of reasons to be excited about the future of the franchise.

    Anyone else notice that all our CHL prospects play for crap teams?

    Hishon's team is the only one I remember that went far (actually won something) in the playoffs. I am thinking off the top of my head, but I think Nigel Williams was the last player besides Hishon who got into the Memorial Cup by making the OHL finals.

    is everything
    Is Blandisi another small skill forward (like Bourke, Hishon, Sgarbossa and Clark) or does he have a little bit more physicality.

    It would be nice to have some more dimensions in the prospect pool.

    I think Blandisi is pretty small.

    I like hearing Bigras is playing more physical. Wonder if that's something he gleaned from Foote.
