The announcement just broke, Petter Holland will be given an opportunity to prove his worth with the Colorado Avalanche since he was offered a Professional Try Out with the team:

‘'Colorado #GoAvsGo have signed Peter Holland to a professional try out.

Drafted 15th overall by Anaheim in 2009, Holland last played in the NHL for the NY Rangers in the 2017-18 season.''




The 09 15th overall last played in North America during the 2018-2019 campaign when he managed 65 points in 73 AHL games. He then played two seasons in the KHL, then one in the SHL (Sweden) before taking the 2022-2023 year off.

Once a highly touted prospect, Holland showed how good he was in the OHL and the AHL, but it never translated to the NHL.
