Avalanche's Mikko Rantanen: Officially back in action Thursday

Rantanen (upper body) will return to the lineup for Thursday's Game 1 against the Flames, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

After posting more than a point per game in 2017-18, Rantanen followed it up with an even better showing this season, notching 87 points -- 31 goals and 56 assists -- over 74 contests. He's slated to play on the second line alongside J.T. Compher and Carl Soderberg in his return from an eight-game absence.
