Thought we could have a dedicated thread to information regarding how the Avs players spend their off-season, who they're training with, or if they're just fishing all summer.

Maybe one of the mods could sticky this? (All my powers...they're gone!)

Sounds like Duchene is going to work with Andy O'Brien as he did last summer

I believe MacKinnon and Hishon are working with him as well, no?

Duchene mentioned something about seeing MacKinnon in Halifax. According to Duchene's tweet this morning, he is going there and Los Angles for training with O'Brien.

Good to hear.

MacKinnon has been working with O'Brien and Crosby in Halifax. Looks like Duchene will be joining them soon.

Aren't you wondering what theyll be doing there during the evenings? They're probably playing monopoly every night and then sleeping in bunk beds.

My little bro played in a local rental today with Ben Storm and Storm said he wasn't going to Denver at all this year... which is odd... I'm assuming he maybe meant he's not going to training camp.

I'm to lazy to change the order of these, read from the bottom up. Pretty cool of Matt Duchene to do a Q & A through twitter while on his road tip.

Dater confirmed in one of his online chats that SOB was the one planning the Vegas trip. Bissonnette also posted pictures of him and SOB together in Vegas shortly after the season ended.

Getting SOB away from our young players was a great move by management. I think it was O'Reilly who said SOB is one of his best friends on the team and I remember seeing some pictures of them partying in Phoenix during the season.
