O'Connor scored a goal on four shots, dished a shorthanded assist and went plus-2 in Thursday's 7-1 win over the Canucks.

O'Connor's pair of points came in the second period as the Avalanche tightened their grip on the lead. The 25-year-old forward is up to five points, 33 shots on net, 12 hits, nine blocked shots and a minus-1 rating in 11 contests. He could benefit from Nathan MacKinnon (lower body) missing three weeks -- O'Connor played on the third line Thursday after previously logging fourth-line minutes more frequently.
