MacKinnon dished out two helpers Thursday against the Oilers. MacKinnon seemed to have Colorado on pace for a rare win with assists on a pair of goals by Mikko Rantanen, but five unanswered third-period tallies allowed Edmonton to cruise to a 7-4 victory. While the lack of skill around him can be seen in MacKinnon's minus-18 rating, the fourth-year center's 32 assists are the most he's had since accruing 39 as a rookie.
MacKinnon sealed a win over the Hurricanes on Tuesday with an empty-net goal. The speedster sank a wrister from the slot for his 13th goal of the season. MacKinnon leads the hapless Avs with 43 points (13 goals, 30 assists) and has played in all 65 games. Unfortunately, he often needs to convert in the attacking zone himself to avoid a minus rating on any given night. After all, Colorado's hockey club has a putrid minus-89 goal differential.
MacKinnon posted two assists in Saturday's win over the Sabres. It was just the third point in eight games for MacKinnon, who hasn't scored in 11 outings. The 21-year-old has explosive skill, but he's struggled along with the rest of Colorado this season, managing just 12 goals. His 41 points make him worth owning in most leagues, but don't expect him to break out suddenly given the team's place in the standings.
MacKinnon posted two assists with a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 4-0 win against the Canadiens. MacKinnon has posted three goals with 11 points over the past 13 games, which is the type of production fantasy owners expect from him. The Avalanche have struggled this season, and MacKinnon's minus-14 rating is a deterrent for fantasy owners. However, he generates enough offense to overcome the poor rating.
MacKinnon posted two assists and he registered three hits in Tuesday's 6-4 loss against the Blackhawks. These are not the best of times in Denver right now, but MacKinnon continues to do his job well. He has four multi-point performances over his past 10 outings, but his terrible minus-13 caps his fantasy value at the moment. Still, he generates enough scoring to overcome the negative rating.
