    Day 7 – Colorado Avalanche

    The Colorado Avalanche has had a lot of success scouting and drafting in recent history. With recent first round picks making an impact offensively in the NHL, such as the likes of Matt Duchene, Ryan O’Reilly, Paul Stastny and Calder Trophy winner Gabriel Landeskog. Add youngsters acquired via trade such as Erik Johnson and Semyon Varlamov the future is bright. But the Av’s have even more quality youth coming. Mainly in defense and goaltending, Colorado has several young players, worthy of fantasy consideration. Their defensive prospects pose a great value in the future with a number of two- way blue liners who can both be responsible in their own end and put up a bunch of points.

    C - Joey Hishon, (CAN) Lake Erie Monsters

    5’11”, 175 lbs, 20 years

    Hishon was becoming a player gathering some serious consideration. Drafted 17th overall in 2010 Hishon was the leading scorer for Owen Sound in 2010/2011 playing in only 50 games, yet scoring 37 goals and 50 assists. Hishon lead Owen Sound all the way to the Memorial Cup where he suffered a serious concussion. The injury cost him the entire year, as he was unable to play since last year’s Memorial Cup. Hishon was given the medical clearance to resume training in late May of 2012 after receiving treatment in a hyperbaric oxygen therapy center. Injuries have become a concern for the diminutive center, but there is no doubting his skill. His chippy aggressive style makes him even more of a target than his stick handling abilities and offense. A high-risk high reward fantasy investment, capable of playing second line center in the NHL, or being a bust as a result of injuries

    Projection: Top six forward
    Potential Upside: 60 points
    ETA: 2012-2013

    G - Calvin Pickard, (CAN) Seattle Thunderbirds

    6’1”, 208 lbs 19 years

    Not be confused with Chet Pickard of the Nashville Predators who is Calvin’s brother. It has been difficult to gauge Pickard’s value, as his WHL stats are only decent. With a record of 91 wins and 120 losses in 241 games and a GAA of 3.29 and a save percentage of .909 there is no wow factor there. However, Pickard played for the lowly Seattle Thunderbirds and was named first, and second team All- Star, and the Thunderbirds’ Most Valuable Player two times. If Pickard played on a better team he would be better known and recognized as a higher prospect. With at least one season in the AHL before he is NHL ready he could be worth picking up cheap and sitting on and watch his fantasy value grow. Pickard is a highly underrated, potential NHL starter.

    Projection: Starting goalie
    Potential Upside: 30 wins
    ETA: 2013-2014
