Bo Horvat, Jonathan Toews rumors to the Colorado Avalanche
Will the Colorado Avalanche be forced into making a big move with all the injuries they have. They could target Bo Horvat or Jonathan Toews.

The Colorado Avalanche have been hit by the injury bug and they are basically playing with a farm team currently.

With significant injuries plaguing the team comes NHL trade rumors and what moves the Avs could make.

Will the Colorado Avalanche inquire about Bo Horvat or Jonathan Toews?

Even before all the injuries that have hit the Avs team, NHL rumors were making the rounds that Colorado could target a Jonathan Toews trade at the NHL trade deadline.

Elliotte Friedman was on the Jeff Marek radio show and speculated that the Nathan MacKinnon injury could force the Colorado Avalanche to make a deal for a centre sooner rather than later.

You could probably go out and get a Chris Tierney or something like that…I think at some point they will take a big swing whether it’s Jonathan Toews or Bo Horvat

NHL trade rumors: Jonathan Toews linked to the Winnipeg Jets

Friedman mentioning Bo Horvat is interesting as the Vancouver Canucks have let teams know that Brock Boeser is available for trade. That would mean the Canucks want to re-sign Horvat long-term instead of trading him at the NHL trade deadline or losing him to free agency for nothing.

It will be interesting to see what the Avs do. They are currently tied for the last playoff spot with the Calgary Flames. If they fall out of playoff contention, they could be forced into making a big move.
