UND bound Tyson Jost happy to be skating with Avalanche
The 10th overall pick in this year's NHL Draft, Tyson Jost is enjoying his time in camp with the Colorado Avalanche.
Just three days after being given an Avalanche jersey by general manager and Hockey Hall of Fame Legend Joe Sakic, forward Tyson Jost is now wearing the Avalanche practice sweater.
While committed to the University of North Dakota next season, Jost said in an interview with the Denver Post, "It's exciting. I want to improve every little part of my game and there's so much that you can soak up and learn from here. I think if I take everything that I learn and bring it back to North Dakota...it's all something that can really help get me to the pros...I'll bring everything back to North Dakota for a year, or maybe it's two years, but like I've said, I want to be in the NHL as soon as I can."
Jost, along with 23 other Avalance prospects went through a 3-hour, 45 minute skate on Wednesday morning, before a full-group, hour-long afternoon session at Family Sports Center in Englewood, CO. Jost adds, "It's been a really great two days so far and I'm looking forward to the rest of the week."
Previously, Jost chose North Dakota over the University of Denver. Along with other NCAA players chosen by the Avalanche this year, is paying his way for the Avs camp, per NCAA rules.
