Makar notched a power-play assist in Wednesday's 6-2 loss to the Wild. Makar had the secondary helper on a Nazem Kadri tally in the third period. The helper was Makar's first point in three games since he returned from an upper-body injury that cost him two contests. The 22-year-old has 13 points, a plus-6 rating, 28 shots on net and 13 hits through 14 contests this year. He's seeing a ton of ice time with duties on the top pairing and first power-play unit, so Makar is locked in as a fantasy stud on the blue line.
Makar had two shots and two PIM over a team-high 24:10 of ice time in Saturday's 3-2 win over Vegas. Makar's status was iffy leading up to Saturday's outdoor game due to an upper-body injury, but the fact he logged this much ice time is an indication he's likely back to normal. The 22-year-old is on a point-per-game pace with one goal and 11 assists over 12 games.
Makar (upper body) will play in Saturday's matchup versus the Golden Knights on outdoor ice in Lake Tahoe, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports. Makar skated on the top pairing with Devon Toews during warmups, and he'll return to action after two games on the shelf. The 22-year-old started his Norris bid strong, recording 12 points -- six on the power play -- and a plus-9 rating through the first 11 games.
Coach Jared Bednar isn't sure if Makar (upper body) will be available for Saturday's outdoor game versus Vegas, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports. Makar practiced Thursday, so he's clearly making progress in his recovery, but his availability for Saturday's outdoor match may boil down to a game-time decision. The 22-year-old blueliner racked up 12 points in 11 games before missing Colorado's last two contests with an upper-body issue.
Makar (upper body) won't play in Tuesday's game versus the Golden Knights, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports. Despite taking part in warmups, the 22-year-old will sit out for a second straight night. He'll aim to return Saturday versus the Golden Knights.
