Colorado Avalanche sign Philipp Grubauer to a contract extension - Mile High Hockey
The newly acquired netminder agreed to a 3-year extension this weekend. With Varlamov's injury history and Bernier's inconsistency, this gives Colorado some solid goalkeeping.

Also, many thanks to the Predators Foundation for putting together another great Beer Festival! Red Silo Brewing took home the fan vote...they had a pretty awesome mango beer.

Have a great week, folks.
