Andrighetto has four assists in his last three games. The often-streaky winger has found his way onto the scoresheet with more regularity in February, registering five points in 12 games. In Saturday's 5-0 win over the Predators, he also twice raised a referee's arm, earning four PIM. It's unlikely the bad boy routine continues, as those penalties gave Andrighetto 10 PIM this year, matching his career high in the category from last season.
Andrighetto scored his fourth goal of the season in a 4-1 win over the Jets on Thursday. On a delayed penalty call against the Jets, Andrighetto capped off a tic-tac-toe passing play for the game's final goal. Andrighetto hadn't scored since Dec. 14, and he still has just seven points in 39 games. He averaged only 11:22 of ice time per game entering the contest, and Andrighetto's lack of production across almost all statistics makes him safe to avoid in fantasy.
Andrighetto carries a minus-6 rating through nine pointless appearances in 2019. Andrighetto tends to produce in spurts -- that's only natural for a guy averaging a mere 11:49 of ice time -- but it's rather disconcerting that he hasn't connected for any power-play points this season as a skater consistently working with the secondary man-advantage group. The fear is that he may be losing confidence in his shot based on a career-worst 5.5 shooting percentage and only three goals over 32 games.
Andrighetto (lower body) will rejoin the lineup for Friday's home game against the Capitals, Marc Moser of Altitude Sports 950 reports. Andrighetto has been activated from injured reserve, so he's fully ready to rock. The 25-year-old winger from Switzerland has one goal and a plus-2 rating over six contests, though it appears that he'll be eased back into the lineup as a fourth-liner.
Andrighetto (lower body) isn't expected to play Wednesday against Boston or Friday against the Capitals, but he'll likely join the Avalanche on their upcoming road trip, Marc Moser of Altitude Sports 950 reports. Andrighetto has missed Colorado's last five games due to a lower-body injury, but it sounds like he could be ready to return as soon as Sunday against the Ducks. The 25-year-old winger was averaging 2:26 of ice time on the man advantage per game prior to his injury, so he may be worth a look in deeper leagues once he's cleared to play.
