Ryan O’Reilly on facing his former Avalanche teammates

‘“Coming in here, I got a fantastic contract that helped, but I think it’s a great city to play in,” O’Reilly said. “It’s a great hockey town. It’s a good group of guys in here. I think I’m seen a little bit more as a leader and a go-to guy, which at Colorado I might not have been.”’

Deslauriers frustrating season

‘”Even before that, I did not play much when I was in uniform. This is the style of play I bring that may not be fitter with our way of playing lately. When you win, you put that aside, but when you start to lose, it’s on tough. You look at the other guys who are in the same style and you want to play as much as they do, but it varies from coach to coach , if he thinks you need more skill players than energy, Said the impressive 6 ‘1’ ‘215-pound guy who had 6 goals and 12 points in 70 games last year, including his last goal, which brought a win to his team against Ottawa on March 18.’

Nikita Zadorov, Mikhail Grigorenko talk about return as Avalanche heads to Sabres

‘Zadorov played seven games for the Sabres in 2013-14 and 60 the next season. In his second season with the Colorado organization, he is starting to look like the most valuable part of the deal on the Colorado side as a defenseman making major progress, despite inconsistency and occasional major mental mistakes. And he’s only 21.’
