This week’s episode of Avalanche Talk looks at Andrei Mironov‘s return to the KHL and what went into his decision to leave the Avalanche as well as Connor Timmins’ entry-level contract signing and the expectations for his near future. Hosts JJ Jerez and Ryan Boulding discuss the sustainability of the offensive load Nathan MacKinnon is carrying for the Avs in recent games, Semyon Varlamov‘s play in meaningful moments and what lies ahead in Colorado’s schedule now that a wave of players will be slowly returning from injury.
