The Colorado Avalanche enter this weekend's NHL Draft at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia with seven picks. The draft begins with round 1 at 5 p.m. MT Friday before resuming with rounds 2-7 on Saturday morning.

NBCSN will have live coverage of the first round, beginning at 5 p.m. MT Friday. The NHL Network in the U.S. will televise rounds 2-7 on Saturday, starting at 8 a.m. MT.

The Avs are set to select in the first round at No. 23 overall, a position the franchise has never picked from. The closest the Avalanche/Nordiques have picked to No. 23 was at No. 22 and No. 24, both of which the franchise has selected from three times. The last time the franchise picked near the No. 23 spot was in 2004 when it chose Wojtek Wolski from Brampton (OHL) at No. 21 overall.

Colorado has six picks in the final six rounds, including two in the fourth round (93rd and 114th) and one apiece in the third (84th), fifth (144th), sixth (174th) and seventh round (204th).

The Avalanche received the No. 93 overall pick (originally Edmonton's) in a trade that sent Ryan O'Byrne to Toronto on April 3, 2013. The Avs traded their 2014 second-round pick (54th) to Calgary for Reto Berra on March 5.
