BOWEN BYRAM COULD MAKE AVALANCHE DEBUT IN PLAYOFFS

In last year's playoffs, a young defenceman by the name of Cale Makar came into the Colorado Avalanche's defensive lineup. Though he had scored 49 points in 41 games that season with Umass Amherst in the NCAA, Makar surprised some when he scored six points in ten games for the Avalanche. Now, there just may be another defenceman success story coming Colorado's way.



Last year, Colorado drafted Bowen Byram with their fourth overall pick - a player who has averaged over one point per game as a defenceman with the Vancouver Giants in the WHL. According to Steve Ewen, the Avalanche have asked Byram to report to training camp in Denver, to possibly participate in the late summer playoffs.

If Byram makes the team, Colorado may just have the most promising young defensive couple in the league. In the Canadian gold medal winning WJC team in January, Byram recorded two assists in seven games, finishing the WHL season with 52 points in 50 games.
