Avalanche signs Boulder native Nate Clurman, a junior defenseman out of Notre Dame

Boulder native Nate Clurman has signed a two-year, NHL entry-level contract with the Avalanche, the team announced Monday. Clurman, a junior defenseman out of Notre Dame, served as team captain this season but will report to the Colorado Eagles and forgo his final year of NCAA eligibility.

Clurman, 22, was the Avs’ 2016 sixth-round draft choice (161st overall) out of Culver Military Academy in Indiana, where he played before joining Notre Dame in 2018. He helped lead the Irish to this year’s NCAA Tournament but the team was removed from the 16-team field before its regional opener due to COVID protocol.
