Listen to “Forgettable Season Debut” on Spreaker.
Star center Nathan MacKinnon finally escaped COVID protocol and made his season debut but it was about as forgettable a game as he’s ever had. Aarif and JJ review the Avalanche’s 6-3 loss in Washington and MacKinnon’s poor performance. The guys also break down the team’s efforts through three games and if it’s too early to panic. The show ends with a conversation about Jack Eichel and the report from Sportsnet that Joe Sakic inquired about the Buffalo forward. All that and more on this edition of Hockey Mountain High: Your go-to Avalanche Podcast.

Produced by Patrick Stedman.
