Good morning all. Sandie’s off for the day so this is another “no cakes, just cup” edition. Let’s get to it.
- Tyson Jost joined Graham Turnbull on the brand new Junior A Puckcast last Thursday. His segment starts around 12 minutes in but the whole thing is good if you’re into the Canadian Junior A Leagues. (s/t to QJK)
- Get to know new Rampage defenseman Gabriel Verpaelst thanks to the good folks at Circling the Wagon. (s/t to RWtH)
- While we have captain’s practices going on at Family Sports all week, the staff at the Pepsi Center will begin laying the ice today. (Yeah, soon…)
- Our old friend Cole Hamilton has an excellent article up at BSN on the Avs road to relevance going through the NCAA. Seriously read this, great work.
- The Avs released a few new player numbers on Monday. We have a full review coming up, but here’s a tease:

Yak looks pretty stoked, eh? That’s all for now, although it’s a Tuesday and we all know what can happen on Tuesdays. Sandie returns tomorrow with the real deal, enjoy.
