Avalanche's Alex Newhook: Returns for Game 5

Newhook had an assist over 6:34 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Golden Knights in Game 5. Newhook, who was active for the first two games of the series before being made a healthy scratch for Games 3 and 4, provided a lift from the fourth line with his second point of the postseason. After sustained pressure in the Vegas end, Newhook controlled the puck in the corner and moved up the boards, patiently waiting for Joonas Donskoi to get into a prime scoring slot, and he delivered the pass that led to Colorado's second goal and a 2-0 lead. The series moves to Las Vegas for Game 6 on Thursday with the Avalanche facing elimination.

Avalanche's Alex Newhook: Active for Game 1

Newhook had one shot and one hit over 9:14 of ice time in Colorado's 7-1 victory over Vegas in Game 1 on Sunday. There had been drama regarding Newhook's status after he skated outside the top four lines at Saturday's practice, but the 20-year-old was activated for the series opener. He skated on the right wing of the fourth line with Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Sampo Ranta. Game 2 is Wednesday in Denver.

Avalanche rookie Alex Newhook already asserting himself early in pro career

Alex Newhook has been a point-per-game forward his entire hockey career. Give him another game or two with the Avalanche, and he just might be that at the NHL level, too. The 20-year-old rookie has three points in four games since being called up by the Avs — slightly off his usual production but certainly still something to build upon. Now playing for his fourth team since last fall, Newhook has a combined 34 points in 20 games for Boston College, Canada’s World Junior Championship team, the AHL’s Colorado Eagles and the Avalanche.
