Alex Newhook indicated last week in an interview with Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic that he expects to return to Boston College for the 2020-21 season rather than signing with the Avalanche. "I think the development part has been great and I learned a lot this year," Newhook said. "I have developed into a more complete player and a more dynamic player. I think for me, the plan has not changed as of now…The Avs are a really strong team and they have a lot of depth. I am in a good spot at BC, and to be in a good spot like this and have this position of not being rushed and not being forced out of a good spot makes my situation that much better."
