Morning Flurries: Alex Kerfoot could step right into Avalanche lineup

And discussions about Semyon Varlamov, Erik Johnson, and the Avs leading scorer The Prospects College free agent forward Alex Kerfoot signed has a two-year entry-level contract with the Colorado Avalanche organization. “Although statistically listed as a bit undersized - the 23-year-old center stands at just 5-foot-10 and 175 lbs - Kerfoot can best be described as a late bloomer and incredibly hard worker.” [Mile High Hockey] “I think that my strengths in my game are my competitiveness and my hockey sense, I think that I’m a pretty good playmaker, but I play a 200-foot game.

What to watch for from Semyon Varlamov in 2017

What to watch for from Semyon Varlamov in 2017

A look at what could go right (and why) for the team starter Semyon Varlamov has been a hard sell the last few seasons. When he’s having a great stretch, he’s an unmovable brick wall for the Colorado Avalanche. The 29-year-old Samara, Russia native is collected, poised, and hard to shake out of position. He tracks well, he doesn’t make scrambling saves caused by poor reads, and he doesn’t float too far out of his crease. Injuries have plagued him throughout his career, though, and he’s had stretches where his numbers just don’t add up with Vezina-calibre pedigree. Last...
