  • Avalanche's Ross Colton: Picks up assist in loss

    Colton recorded an assist and one hit over 14:27 of ice time in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to Arizona.

    After the Avalanche failed to convert on a 2-on-1, Colton regrouped in the neutral zone and initiated sequence that ended with a Miles Wood tally during the second period. While the third line has started to produce more offense of late -- Colton has seven points over the last nine games -- the Avalanche remain a team that relies heavily on the first line when it comes to scoring.

  • Avalanche's Ross Colton: Scores goal before ejection

  • Avalanche's Ross Colton: Credited with goal

    Colton scored a goal on five shots over 11:29 of ice time in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Islanders.

    It was an odd way for Colton to score his first goal for Colorado. He was given credit for the empty-net goal, which came off the stick of New York's Alexander Romanov, whose pass back to the point went by a teammate and into the net. Colton was the last member of the Avalanche to touch the puck. The winger, who is expected to drive scoring from the third line, had been noticeably absent from the scoresheet with just one assist through five games prior to Tuesday's contest. The goal snapped a four-game pointless streak.

  • Avalanche's Ross Colton: Avs awaiting offense

    Colton had three shots on net over 11:46 of ice time in Saturday's 6-4 win over Carolina.

    Colton was off the scoresheet for a fourth straight game and has yet to score a goal. The Avalanche added him to provide scoring depth from the third line but perhaps adjusting to center has impacted his offense. Colton has just six shots on goal at even strength.

  • Avalanche's Ross Colton: Hands out assist

    Colton notched an assist, three shots on goal and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Kings.

    Colton set up Miles Wood's empty-net goal in the third period. This was a solid Avalanche debut for Colton, who logged 13:43 of ice time as the third-line center between Wood and Tomas Tatar. After produced 71 points over 160 games across the last two seasons, Colton is a proven depth scorer capable of playing a gritty role on a talented team. If he can carve out a power-play role, he may have some fantasy appeal, though he should already be on managers' radar in formats that count hits.

  • Avalanche's Ross Colton: Inks four-year deal

    Colton agreed to a four-year, $16 million contract with Colorado on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Colton and the Avalanche had an arbitration hearing scheduled for July 27, but now that won't be necessary. Colton produced 16 goals, 32 points, 153 shots on net and 188 hits in 81 games with Tampa Bay last season. Colorado acquired Colton from the Lightning on June 28 in exchange for the No. 37 pick, which was used on Ethan Gauthier, in the 2023 NHL Entry Draft.

  • Avalanche's Ross Colton: Acquired from Lightning

    Colton was traded to Colorado from Tampa Bay on Wednesday in exchange for the No. 37 overall pick in the 2023 NHL Draft.

    Colton recorded 16 goals, 32 points, 50 PIM and 188 hits in 81 outings with Tampa Bay last season. He's coming off a two-year, $2.25 million contract and is eligible to become a restricted free agent with arbitration rights Saturday, so the Avalanche will need to re-sign him. Colton will likely start the 2023-24 campaign in a third-line role.

  • Lightning's Ross Colton: Right place, right time for goal

    Colton scored a goal in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over New Jersey.

    Colton opened the scoring at 1:09 of the first when he was in the right place at the right time. He was in front of the net and a Mikhail Sergachev shot hit him and deflected off his knee and past Akira Schmidt. Colton's fantasy contributions are limited -- he has three points, all goals, in his last 12 games.

  • Lightning's Ross Colton: Two-point effort Tuesday

    Colton scored a power-play goal and added an even-strength assist in Tuesday's 6-1 win over the Ducks.

    Both points came in the second period as the Lightning scored four unanswered goals to blow open the game. Colton had just one point, a goal, through seven games to begin February, and while he does have a spot on the second power-play unit, his overall production in a checking-line role is inconsistent at best. Through 55 games this season, the 26-year-old winger has 12 goals and 24 points.
