Boedker to Avalanche for Tanguay, 2 prospects

Mikkel Boedker will be looked upon for scoring and settle Blake Comeau into a shutdown role for the Avs as they attempt maintaining their lead on the Western Conference’s last wildcard spot.

Alex Tanguay gets to enjoy the sun in Arizona while the Coyotes get Kyle Wood and Conner Bleackley.

Wood is a battle-tested defenceman with the North Bay Battalion in the OHL, while Bleackley is a 2 way leader for Red Deer in the WHL.

Bleackley’s dealt with conditioning issues this season and was removed as captain by coach Brent Sutter to focus on his individual game.
