Barrie (undisclosed) will return to action Tuesday evening against host Pittsburgh. Despite missing the past four games, Barrie is tied with four others to rank ninth among NHL defensemen in points with three goals and 17 assists. Better yet, the Avs run the league's best power play, as it's converting at a rate of 32.2 percent, and Barrie is certainly a part of that equation based on his accruing seven helpers between 3:36 of average ice time in that special teams situation.
Barrie (undisclosed) is expected to play against the Penguins on Tuesday if everything goes smoothly at Monday's practice. The Avalanche will surely be over the moon at this news, and all of Barrie's fantasy owners as well. The defenseman puts up a lot of points from the blue line, as he has 20 points in 23 games this year. This is after the 27-year-old had 57 points in 68 games last season. Definitely keep an eye on Barrie's status, just in case there is a setback, but you should be able to plug him into your lineup Tuesday.
Barrie (undisclosed) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Red Wings, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports. Barrie will watch from the press box for the fourth straight game, and the Avalanche have allowed three goals in each of those outings. The 27-year-old was having an excellent season before the injury with 20 points in 23 games, and Samuel Girard will continue working in the top pairing.
Barrie (undisclosed) will sit out a second straight game Wednesday, with his Avalanche team facing the Penguins at home, Adrian Dater of BSN Denver reports. With Barrie unavailable, the Avs should continue utilizing sixth-year skater Patrik Nemeth a fair amount. Colorado got a taste of what it's like to play without Barrie on Tuesday, eking out a 3-2 win over the Predators.
Barrie will miss Tuesday's matchup with Nashville due to an undisclosed issue, Marc Moser of Altitude Sports 950 reports. Replacing Barrie's offensive production will be a tall task for the rest of the blue line, as he has notched 20 points in 23 contests. Coach Jared Bednar didn't provide specifics on the nature or severity of the British Columbia native's problem, so it's unclear how long he might be unavailable. In the meantime, Mark Barberio will rejoin the lineup.
