NHL: Nashville Predators at Colorado Avalanche Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Tom Hunter, managing editor of Mile High Hockey, stopped by to talk about the Avalanche’s recent impressive run of hockey games!

We also discuss:

  • Friday night’s matchup with the Predators
  • the youth movement in Colorado, including our boy Samuel Girard
  • a gaggle of other young Avs like Alex Kerfoot and Mikko Rantanen (he has 70 points this year and you’d hardly know it)
  • why Nathan Mackinnon should be a Hart finalist (and probably should win it)
  • playoff chances and potential matchups. That 3rd seed is looking good!
  • A brief Colin Wilson cameo.

Enjoyed this episode immensely. Tom lives in Toronto and so has to deal with Maple Leafs coverage, so we wish him well.

By the way, I really appreciate you all listening to these shows. We’ve done 35 of them and I am pretty proud of what we’ve done so far. But there’s a lot more to come and the playoffs should make for some fun content.

Speaking of...
