Joey Hishon likely has the best shot at making the Avalanche amongst the organization's pool of rookies, as the 2010 first-round pick will come to training camp with a lot to offer Colorado if he stays healthy.

Hishon, 22, is a fierce and energetic forward who can skate and score at a high level. Hishon is a productive center but has been plagued by significant injuries through each of the last four seasons. When healthy, the 5’10, 175 pounder knows how to generate offense, but will have to show some poise during training camp if he hopes to work amongst the Avs' gifted group of forwards.
