Makar had 12 goals, 50 points and a plus-12 rating in 57 games prior to the league suspending the season in March. The 21-year-old was putting together a terrific campaign prior to the stoppage. He didn't score a goal in the 13 games prior to the season's pause, but Makar did have 10 assists during that stretch.
Makar (upper body) assisted on all three of the Avalanche's goals in a 3-2 overtime win over the Rangers on Wednesday. Makar returned from a five-game absence in style, injecting some life into an ailing Avalanche offense. The strong performance put Makar at 50 points (18 on the power play) in 57 games in his rookie year.
Makar (upper body) will rejoin the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rangers, Rick Sadowski of NHL.com reports. Makar's return is a major boon for an Avalanche club coming off three losses in its last four tilts. The rookie blueliner should resume his duties as a major contributor both at even strength and on the power play, as he's recorded 47 points (12 goals and 35 points) and 17 power-play points over 56 contests.
Makar (upper body) won't travel with the team to begin their three-game road trip, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports. Head coach Jared Bednar suggested that the Avalanche's injured players, Makar included, may be able to join the team on the road at some point. At this stage, it sounds like Makar will at least miss a third straight game Friday in Vancouver.
Makar (upper body) is slated to sit out again Wednesday versus the Ducks, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports. Makar's absence leaves a major void of production on the back end, as the rookie blueliner has certainly lived up to his fourth-overall billing in 2017 with 47 points (12 goals and 35 assists) over 56 contests. He won't have to wait long for his next opportunity to take the ice Friday in Vancouver, where the Avalanche will open a three-game road trip.
