On Friday afternoon the Colorado Avalanche rookies won their first game of the tournament defeating the Arizona Coyotes rookies 3-2 in overtime. Most of the squad in attendance suited up minus Ondrej Pavel and Calum Ritchie who hasn’t been cleared for contact yet, though he did participate in the morning skate.

Arizona had a lineup loaded with top picks and it showed. Josh Doan scored two goals in the first period while the Avalanche received a tally from one of their invitees Milo Roelens.
