Avalanche Play of the Week - Jan. 16-22
Let your voice be heard in selecting Colorado’s “Play of the Week” each week during the season.

Goals by Chris Stewart, Ryan Smyth and Milan Hejduk are nominated this week. The tallies by Smyth and Hejduk represented the 300th goal of their respective careers.

We’ve offered up three choices, and now it's your turn to choose the top play by voting on the poll below or on the homepage of ColoradoAvalanche.com. At the end of the season, a bracket-style tournament will be held to determine – once again, through fan voting – the Avalanche’s “Play of the Year”.

Check out this week’s three nominees, and be sure to vote for your favorite by Monday at 12:00 p.m. MT.

Stewart Barrels In – 1/18 vs. Calgary
Rookie forward Chris Stewart gave the Avs a 2-0 lead over the Flames with his fifth goal of the season. Stewart grabbed the puck and barreled in on a breakaway, fending off a charging Adam Pardy before beating McElhinney with a low shot.

 


Smyth’s 300th – 1/18 vs. Calgary
With the Avalanche short-handed, Ryan Smyth was joined by Ben Guite on a 2-on-1 rush toward the Calgary goal. After streaking up the right wing, the Banff, Alberta, native elected to take the shot himself, putting a wrister on net that handcuffed Calgary netminder Curtis McElhinney for his 300th career goal.

 


Hejduk’s 300th – 1/18 vs. Calgary
Milan Hejduk joined Smyth in the 300-goal club just a few minutes later when he snapped off a quick wrist shot from the left faceoff circle with the Avalanche on a power play. Hejduk also became just the fourth player in franchise history to record 300 career goals.
