As the 2019/20 NHL season reaches it’s 10 day point, let’s take a close look at Jack Eichel, as one of the players to keep your eye on as the season progresses. Continue reading →
The Colorado Avalanche are set to open the season this Thursday, October 3rd. The Denver Nuggets open the regular season on October 23rd. While the Nuggets open the season on ESPN, the Avalanche do not. As things currently stand, The Avalanche game will not be viewed by the local public unless you are in the Pepsi Center.
