According to a report from Denver Post writer and Colorado Avalanche insider Mike Chambers, the team’s ECHL affiliate Colorado Eagles have received promotion and will play the 2018-19 season in the AHL.

The move could have a massive impact on the team’s brightest prospects as now the Avs scouting staff and development coaches can evaluate and work with the players more closely. 

While the news hasn’t been made official yet, it’s expected that an announcement in September will confirm Chambers’ report. The team’s partnership with the San Antonio Rampage will continue for 2016-17, before their agreement transfer to the St. Louis Blues for 2018-19.
