Burakovsky (lower body) won't return to Saturday's game versus the Wild.

Burakovsky recorded an assist in 13:06 of ice time, but it's not clear how he was injured. It's a tough loss for the Avalanche, who are already missing Mikko Rantanen (lower body) and Valeri Nichushkin (upper body) from the winger ranks. Burakovsky will have three days to heal up before the Avalanche's game Wednesday against the Blue Jackets if he is to avoid missing time.
