Colorado Avalanche Rumors: Team Linked To Devils Forward

There have been recent reports and growing speculation that the Colorado Avalanche might be interested in acquiring Yegor Sharangovich if he becomes available for trade by the New Jersey Devils.

This information comes from Evan Rawal of Colorado Hockey Now, who draws parallels to the Avalanche's successful acquisitions of players like Andre Burakovsky, Devon Toews, and Alexandar Georgiev in the past.

Sharangovich, a 25-year-old versatile forward, had a slightly disappointing season, recording 13 goals and 30 points following a more impressive campaign of 24 goals and 46 points.

Despite this setback, Sharangovich is still regarded as a middle-six forward with the potential to score 20 goals, making him an attractive target for teams seeking scoring depth.

With an affordable average annual value (AAV) of $2 million, Sharangovich's contract aligns well with the Avalanche's salary structure.

If the Devils decide to make him available, it is speculated that the Avalanche might be willing to part with a second-round draft pick to acquire him.

This would make Sharangovich an attainable option for the Avalanche, who have a history of making shrewd moves to bolster their roster.

Over hsi three-year career, the former 2018 third-round pick has racked up an identical 53 goals and 53 assists for a total of 106 points across 205 games played. Photo Credit: Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports
