According to a TSN insider, the Colorado Avalanche are not interested in trading forward Valeri Nichushkin despite his current absence from the team.Nichushkin was placed in the third stage of the NHL/NHLPA Player Assistance Program, a six-month suspension, and the team has communicated to other teams that they intend to support his rehabilitation.
TSN's Chris Johnston reported on his podcast that the Avalanche are committed to helping Nichushkin both on and off the ice, aiming for his return to the team once he completes the program in November. The Player Assistance Program has multiple stages, with Stage 3 being the second-highest level, resulting in a six-month suspension without pay.
Nichushkin's situation has garnered attention, and fans hope to see him back on the ice soon, contributing to the Avalanche's offense in the 2024-25 season. The team's decision to stand by Nichushkin reflects their investment in his well-being and potential return to form.
"And then you have Valeri Nichushkin, who is in stage three of the NHL/NHLPA player assistance program," Johnston said. "He can't play before November under the terms of that arrangement. The Avalanche are telling teams right now, ‘we're not trading him during this window.' They're hoping to help rehabilitate the player and the person."

The Colorado Avalanche's stance on Nichushkin's situation demonstrates their commitment to supporting players' personal struggles and their desire to see him succeed both personally and professionally. As Nichushkin works through the program, fans eagerly await his return to the ice, hoping for a strong comeback in the upcoming season.
