Avs forward Joe Colborne believes his team needs to learn from the disastrous season they had in 2016-17.

"The only way you can take anything positive out of that was, it was a learning experience," Colborne said. "I don’t think any of us had ever been through the hardship that we went through. Part of being a pro is putting that season behind you as much as you can and realize that every single one of us has to be better. There wasn’t one guy who can honestly say that was something you can be proud of … It hurt, and being a professional, being someone who’s proud of themselves, none of us are happy with it and it’s up to each of us to come back and make sure that we’re a lot better."
