MacKinnon will be sidelined for 1-to-2 weeks with a lower-body injury, Marc Moser of Altitude Sports 950 reports. The Avalanche simply can't catch a break injury-wise, as they'll now be without three of their top-five scorers for Wednesday's game against the Rangers. For now, Vladislav Namestnikov will likely slide into MacKinnon's spot on Colorado's top line, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Nazem Kadri (lower body) take over once he's given the green light.

It's unclear how serious the injury is, but an update should be available before Wednesday's tilt with the Rangers. The 24-year-old forward has 35 goals and 93 points in 69 games this season.
