The Denver Post has confirmed that Peter Mueller has been traded from Phoenix to the Colorado Avalanche along with young center Kevin Porter. Wojtek Wolski, who we said earlier could be on the move today, is heading to the Coyotes in the deal.
It's a trade of two young players who have a lot of upside but may have needed a change of scenery in Wolski and Mueller, but the addition of Porter in the deal makes this a very strong addition to the Colorado lineup.
With a tremendous amount of ability and skill, Porter has continued to transform into on of the top two-way players in the nation. He’s a top-six forward in the collegiate level, who may be able to make an equal transition as a pro. He has good hands, great vision and a great flow to his game. He can find ways to score, but does a better job setting up his linemates. He is a confident player, makes good decisions and has a solid work ethic.
