  • Avalanche's Alex Newhook: Returns for Game 5

    Newhook had an assist over 6:34 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Golden Knights in Game 5.

    Newhook, who was active for the first two games of the series before being made a healthy scratch for Games 3 and 4, provided a lift from the fourth line with his second point of the postseason. After sustained pressure in the Vegas end, Newhook controlled the puck in the corner and moved up the boards, patiently waiting for Joonas Donskoi to get into a prime scoring slot, and he delivered the pass that led to Colorado's second goal and a 2-0 lead. The series moves to Las Vegas for Game 6 on Thursday with the Avalanche facing elimination.

  • Avalanche's Alex Newhook: Active for Game 1

    Newhook had one shot and one hit over 9:14 of ice time in Colorado's 7-1 victory over Vegas in Game 1 on Sunday.

    There had been drama regarding Newhook's status after he skated outside the top four lines at Saturday's practice, but the 20-year-old was activated for the series opener. He skated on the right wing of the fourth line with Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Sampo Ranta. Game 2 is Wednesday in Denver.

  • Avalanche's Alex Newhook: Practices with fifth liners

    Newhook practiced Saturday with forwards that will most likely not play in Game 1 of the series-opener against the Golden Knights on Sunday, Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now reports.

    Newhook lined up with the suspended Nazem Kadri and depth forward Kiefer Sherwood, while Sampo Ranta skated with Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Carl Soderberg. That suggests Ranta could be active Sunday when the two teams square off, but head coach Jared Bednar is not tipping his hand. Newhook, who missed a couple of games with a lower-body injury, appeared to skate at full strength Saturday.

  • Avalanche's Alex Newhook: Should be ready for next series

    Newhook (lower body) is expected to be available for Game 1 of Colorado's next series, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    The date and opponent of the series opener are yet to be determined, as the Golden Knights lead the Wild 3-2 in their first-round series. Whichever team wins that series will visit Colorado for Game 1, and Newhook -- who left Game 4 against the Blues in the first period -- is expected to be in the Avalanche lineup for that game.

  • Avalanche's Alex Newhook: Exits Sunday's contest

    Newhook (lower body) will not return to Sunday's Game 4 tilt with the Blues.

    Newhook was on the ice for just 1:28 before leaving the game during the first period. The 20-year-old winger scored his first career goal in the Game 3 victory. He'll be questionable for Tuesday's Game 5 if the Blues avoid elimination Sunday.

  • Avalanche's Alex Newhook: Scores first NHL goal

    Newhook scored a goal in Friday's 5-1 win over the Blues in Game 3.

    Newhook tallied at 12:37 of the second period, and his first NHL goal counted as Friday's game-winner. The 20-year-old had three assists in six regular-season outings. While he's played in all three playoff games, Newhook has seen very sheltered usage on the fourth line thus far -- he's not likely to receive many chances to contribute.

  • Avalanche's Alex Newhook: Skates on fourth line

    Newhook had one shot and one hit over 7:07 of ice time in Colorado's 4-1 win over St. Louis in Game 1 of their playoff series Monday.

    Newhook was moved to the fourth line for the series opener, after the prospect lined up in a middle-six role during the regular season and averaged 13:41 of ice time. He may be out of place on the fourth line, a role that's better suited for Carl Soderberg.

  • Avalanche's Alex Newhook: Dishes two assists

    Newhook produced a pair of assists and two hits in Monday's 2-1 win over the Golden Knights.

    Newhook helped out on the game-tying goal by Andre Burakovsky and the game-winner from J.T. Compher. The 20-year-old Newhook is up to three assists, three shots on net, three hits and a plus-4 rating through four games.

  • Avalanche's Alex Newhook: Earns first NHL assist

    Newhook registered an assist in Friday's 3-2 win over the Kings.

    Newhook collected a secondary helper on a Cale Makar tally in the second period. The 20-year-old Newhook earned his first NHL point in just his second appearance. He centered the third line Friday with Nathan MacKinnon's (lower body) absence forcing Tyson Jost into a top-line role. Newhook's arrival is too late to help many season-long fantasy managers, but he could be a budget option for points in DFS and playoff pools if he sticks in the lineup.

  • Avalanche's Alex Newhook: Centers second line

    Newhook had one shot on net over 13:20 of ice time, including 1:13 on the power play, in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks.

    Newhook, making his NHL debut, centered the second line and won four of nine faceoffs. The rookie bumped Nazem Kadri to wing, but Kadri also took draws, winning five of eight. Head coach Jared Bednar offered the laconic response of "very good" when asked to evaluate Newhook's performance, per Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now.

  • Avalanche's Alex Newhook: Ready for NHL debut

    Newhook will be promoted to Colorado's active roster and make his NHL debut Wednesday versus San Jose,'s Rick Sadowski reports.

    At this point it isn't clear what line Newhook will skate on Wednesday, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him slot into a top-six role for his NHL debut. The 16th overall pick from the 2019 NHL Entry Draft has racked up five goals and nine points through eight AHL appearances this season.

  • Avalanche's Alex Newhook: Role to be determined

    Colorado head coach Jared Bednar said he hasn't determined what Newhook's role will be when takes the ice for the Avalanche, Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now reports.

    The coach wasn't sure if Newhook will line up at center or wing, but Bednar did confirm he'll play on both special-team units. The Avs added Newhook to the taxi squad ahead of a five-game road trip that began Monday night in San Jose. He was held out of Monday's game, because the coaching staff wanted to go over more video and review team systems. The next opportunity to play comes Wednesday against San Jose.

  • Avalanche's Alex Newhook: Added to taxi squad

    Newhook was promoted to Colorado's taxi squad Sunday, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    The 16th overall selection from the 2019 draft earned this promotion with a strong start to his AHL tenure, producing at a point-per-game pace through seven minor-league contests. Newhook could make his NHL debut as soon as Monday in San Jose. He'll probably take some time to adjust to the NHL game, but Newhook's draft pedigree and development thus far make him a player worth targeting in keeper formats.
