It's always great to see our alumni having success in the next stages of their career.  We have a quick recap of some feature players below:

Michael Kesselring currently playing for the NHL's Arizona Coyotes.  In the 9 games since he got called up, Michael has 5 points and is riding a 5-game point streak.   Michael was a long time Avalanche player before heading to New Hampton, the USHL and then Northeastern Division 1 before turning professional.

Alex Steeves has been called to the Toronto Maple Leafs after an incredible start with the AHL's Toronto Marlies. He currently has an incredible 19 points through 15 games in the AHL.

Alex Gagne started his hockey journey in the Avalanche Mite program, staying with us all the way through 16U Full Season hockey before heading to the USHL and now serves as the Captain of the University of New Hampshire.   He has been instrumental in UNH's great start helping them rank in the top 20 teams Nationally.

Former Avalanche standout Ben Steeves has had a fantastic career since graduating from the Avalanche. He was a point per game player in the USHL and currently has 14 points in 15 games at the University of Minnesota-Duluth

Long time Avalanche member Cooper Flinton is off to another great start in his sophomore year at Dartmouth University.  He had a solid rookie campaign putting up 15 points in 27 games as a true freshman. 

A few other notable graduates are Mason Kesselring and Ryan Philbrick who are currently competing in the USHL and will attend UCONN & UNH as well as Jack Desruisseaux (NAHL) who will attend Sacred Heart. 

Keep up the great work boys
