NEWARK, N.J. — The Colorado Avalanche continued their strong draft selections well into the New Jersey evening, scooping up one forward, one goalkeeper, and five defensemen during the entirety of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. While rounds one (first overall) and two (32nd overall) went relatively slowly, the later choices cruised by at lightning speed.
The rise and fall of the stock of a top ranked prospect comes with the territory of being the best at what you do. One injury, one dry stretch, a couple of off games and you’re no longer at the top. A handful of good nights, a few hat tricks, a comparison to Sidney Crosby and you’re jumping over the guy ahead of you.
