  • Makar notched an assist, three blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Blues in Game 3. Makar had been held off the scoresheet in the last two games before setting up a Nazem Kadri in the second period. The 23-year-old Makar has continued to play well in the playoffs, logging three goals and eight helpers through seven contests. The star defenseman has added 30 shots on net, 15 blocked shots and a plus-4 rating, and he may be asked to do even more with Samuel Girard (chest) out for the remainder of the playoffs.

  • Makar scored a goal on four shots, dished two assists and added two PIM in Monday's 5-3 win over the Predators in Game 4. This was Makar's third three-point effort in the four-game sweep to eliminate the Predators. The 23-year-old defenseman leads the playoffs with 10 points (three goals, seven assists), though his time atop the scoring leaderboard may not last long with the Avalanche likely for a week-long layoff before their next game. Makar has added 20 shots on net, nine blocked shots and a plus-4 rating while continuing to elevate his play when it counts the most.

  • Makar had three helpers in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Predators in Game 3 of the Western Conference playoff series. Two of the assists came on the power play. Makar's ascension as the NHL's best defender just continues to grow. His 1.00 (38 points in 38 games) career playoffs points-per-game average is the fourth-highest among NHL defensemen all-time (min. five games played), behind greats like Bobby Orr (1.24), Brian Leetch (1.02) and Paul Coffey (1.01). Some 200 voters recently filled ballots for the Norris Trophy and most expect the race will come down to Makar or opponent Roman Josi. The ice looks tilted toward Makar right now in head-to-head competition, but we won't know who'll get the award until it's awarded between Games 3 and 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

  • Makar scored a goal on 12 shots in Thursday's 2-1 overtime win over the Predators in Game 2. Makar showed no hesitancy to shoot and finally cashed in at 8:31 of overtime. The defenseman has two goals and two assists through two playoff contests. He'll often shoot a lot, but don't expect him to get into double digits with much frequency.

  • Makar scored a goal on two shots, logged two assists, blocked two shots and added two PIM in Tuesday's 7-2 win over the Predators in Game 1. Makar helped out on the first two goals on the game, including Nathan MacKinnon's opening tally on the power play. The 23-year-old Makar added a goal of his own on a highlight-reel play at 12:15 of the first period. The defenseman is coming off a career year of 28 tallies, 86 points, 240 shots on net and a plus-48 rating in 77 contests. With the Avalanche poised for a deep playoff run, he's likely to be a reliable option in most fantasy contests.
