DENVER — Hopefully defenseman Sean Behrens enjoys the city of Denver.
He could be here for a long time.
The Colorado Avalanche selected the incoming DU freshman in the second-round with the No. 61 overall pick in the NHL Draft on Saturday morning. Behrens is originally from Illinois, but will skate at DU the next few years before making a bid to join the Avalanche organization.
Last season with the U.S. 18-under team in Ann Arbor, Mich., Behrens had 35 points in 46 games. He turned 18-years-old in March.
The Avs next picked at No. 92 overall in the third-round, taking center Andrei Buyalsky. The 20-year-old is slated to be a freshman at the University of Vermont next year after scoring 15 goals in 36 games for the Dubuque Fighting Saints in 2020-21.
Colorado's final pick will come in the seventh-round at No. 220 overall on Saturday afternoon. The team selected winger Oskar Olausson in the first-round with the No. 28 overall pick on Friday night.
