Francouz left Tuesday's contest versus the Golden Knights with an apparent lower-body injury, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

Francouz yielded two goals on 20 shots prior to his exit Tuesday. The 31-year-old appeared to hurt himself while leaning against his post. Jonas Johansson took over in goal, and he'd likely be in line to serve as the Avalanche's No. 2 goalie if Francouz is forced to miss any regular-season games.
