O'Connor had one hit and two blocked shots over 16:06 of ice time in Wednesday's 4-2 win over Vancouver.

O'Connor opened the game on Colorado's top line but did not finish there. Nor was he used on the power play, where the Avalanche did most of their damage, scoring on three of five opportunities. In the third period, Andre Burakovsky took shifts on the top line while O'Connor joined other units. Avs head coach Jared Bednar is looking for someone to join Gabriel Landeskog and Mikko Rantanen on the first line until Nathan MacKinnon (lower body) returns, which is expected to happen around the beginning of December.
