Some unedited photos of the Avs from today’s exhibition scrimmage at the Cadet Field House Ice Arena at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. 

Things of note: 

Patrick Bordeleau is a motherfucking GIANT. I am six feet tall and when he was standing directly in front of me on the ice, I had to look up to see his shoulder.

Matt Duchene is always smiling.

Semyon Varlamov is freaking incredible.

Jean Sebestian Giguere likes attention, and I am happy to give it to him.

PA Parenteau is a beast (almost none of my pictures of him came out, which made me sad because he kept skating by us).

Ryan O’Reilly is a fox. A beardy, beastly fox.

Gabe Landeskog and PA Parenteau have excellent specimens of the hockey booty.
