DENVER – The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today the appointment of Steve Konowalchuk as assistant coach. In addition, the club announced that Adam Deadmarsh will serve as the team’s video/development coach.
The former Avalanche players join a coaching staff that includes head coach Joe Sacco and assistant coach Sylvain Lefebvre.
“We’re very excited to add Steve and Adam to our staff,” said Avalanche General Manager Greg Sherman. “Both have a level of familiarity with the Avalanche organization, and we’re confident they will provide our club with the same passion and commitment they showed as players.”

Choosing to fight Smyth, who is playing on the top line with Joe Sakic and Andrew Brunette, appeared inexcusable, like a Broncos defensive lineman trying to beat up quarterback Jay Cutler. It also appeared that Laperriere’s fight with Love was meant to send a message that you don’t mess with high-salary, skilled forwards like Smyth.
Afterward, the players presented a different picture. Turns out that Smyth, who signed a five-year, $31.25 million contract in July, picked the fight with Love, and Laperriere only fought Love to remind Smyth that he will be handling his dirty work.
