Top Nicolas Aube-Kubel News

  • Avalanche's Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Registers helper

    Aube-Kubel notched an assist and four hits in Thursday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Predators.

    Aube-Kubel set up Logan O'Connor for the Avalanche's third goal of the game. The 25-year-old Aube-Kubel has earned four goals, three assists and 27 hits through 12 games in April. The physical forward is up to 23 points, 85 shots on net, 140 hits and a plus-11 rating in 73 contests between the Avalanche and the Flyers this season.

  • Avalanche's Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Slides assist in loss

    Aube-Kubel had an assist and two hits in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Capitals.

    Aube-Kubel picked up the secondary assist as part of a forechecking sequence that led to Colorado's second goal. The forward seems to have responded to a one-game benching in late March. Since then, he's compiled six points (four goals, two assists) and is plus-5 over eight games.

  • Avalanche's Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Puts away two goals

    Aube-Kubel scored two goals on four shots in Wednesday's 9-3 win over the Kings.

    Aube-Kubel reached the 10-goal mark on the opening tally and scored another in the first period. That got him to the 20-point mark for the first time in his career. The 25-year-old has settled in nicely to a third-line role with the Avalanche after he came over on a waiver claim from the Flyers early in the season. He's produced 80 shots on net, 124 hits, 43 PIM and a plus-11 rating in 66 appearances overall.

  • Avalanche's Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Nets opening tally

    Aube-Kubel scored a goal, added two hits and went plus-2 in Friday's 5-4 overtime win over the Jets.

    Aube-Kubel got the scoring started 5:10 into the first period. The 25-year-old forward has scored twice in his last three games since a healthy scratch. He had gone 17 appearances without a point prior to sitting out a contest, so it's clear he received the message from the benching. Aube-Kubel is at nine goals, nine assists, 76 shots on net, 120 hits and a plus-7 rating through 64 games between the Avalanche and the Flyers this season.

  • Avalanche's Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Returns, scores

    Aube-Kubel scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Penguins.

    Aube-Kubel stepped into a drop pass from Alex Newhook and whistled a slapshot past Tristan Jarry. The forward was a healthy scratch in Colorado's previous game, but Nazem Kadri's upper-body injury opened a spot on the active roster. The tally was Aube-Kubel's first since Feb. 13, a 20-game stretch during which he was inactive twice. Head coach Jared Bednar said Kadri "is going to miss some time," according to Kelsey Hammond of Colorado Hockey Now, so Aube-Kubel could remain in the lineup for the immediate future.

  • Avalanche's Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Scratched Thursday

    Aube-Kubel was scratched for Thursday's game against San Jose.

    This shouldn't come as too much of a surprise. Colorado's lineup featured both trade-deadline acquisitions -- Andrew Cogliano and Artturi Lehkonen -- plus they had Nathan MacKinnon back in the fold. It's uncertain if Aube-Kubel will become the permanent 13th forward or if there will be a rotation of healthy players scratched.

  • Avalanche's Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Impacted by acquisitions

    Aube-Kubel could see a reduced role after Colorado's trade acquisitions Monday, Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now reports.

    Aube-Kubel, Darren Helm and Kurtis MacDermid figure to be part of an audition the rest of the season. Newcomers Artturi Lehkonen and Andrew Cogliano should be in the mix for fourth-line roles. Avalanche head coach Jared Bednar will groom the roster for the postseason, so it wouldn't be surprising to see a platoon of some sort down the stretch. Aube-Kubel was a helpful addition earlier in the season, but his play tailed off lately and he has zero playoff experience.

  • Avalanche's Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Returns to lineup

    Aube-Kubel had one hit over 10:50 of ice time in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Golden Knights.

    Aube-Kubel, who was a healthy scratch Friday in Winnipeg, returned to the lineup and skated on the fourth line. He and Tyson Jost, who was a healthy scratch Saturday, swapped spots on the fourth line the last two games. Avalanche head coach Jared Bednar has flexibility at forward after defenseman Ryan Murray returned to the lineup earlier this week, allowing Kurtis MacDermid to move back from defense to wing. The coach told Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now that with an extra forward hanging around, he's trying to put the best lineup on the ice every night.

  • Avalanche's Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Spends time in sin bin

    Aube-Kubel had one hit and four PIM over 6:08 of ice time in Monday's 5-1 loss to the Bruins.

    Aube-Kubel took a couple of bad penalties -- one in the neutral zone and another in the offensive end -- and had his lowest ice time since Colorado claimed him off waivers in November, including just one shift in the third period. As rumors swirl about the Avalanche looking to add help for the stretch run, Aube-Kubel could be the roster casualty if the front office brings in Claude Giroux or Cal Clutterbuck, as speculated by Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now.

  • Avalanche's Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Claims assist in win

    Aube-Kubel had an assist, one shot on net and two hits in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Sabres.

    Aube-Kubel harmlessly cleared the puck to an open area in the Buffalo zone, and J.T. Compher outraced Buffalo's defenseman to score his ninth goal of the season. The assist was just Aube-Kubel's second point in the last 11 contests, but the bottom-six forward has held up his end of the bargain physically with 22 hits during that stretch.

  • Avalanche's Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Adds insurance tally

    Aube-Kubel scored a goal and added three hits in Sunday's 4-0 win over the Stars.

    Aube-Kubel tallied at 13:50 of the third period to give the Avalanche a 3-0 lead. The 25-year-old only saw 9:16 of ice time in the win despite it being a fairly close game. He's managed 15 points in 41 games this season, with all but one assist coming in 34 games since he joined the Avalanche on a waiver claim from the Flyers. Aube-Kubel has added 56 shots on net, 83 hits and 39 PIM in 2021-22.

  • Avalanche's Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Twirls twine

    Aube-Kubel netted a goal in a 4-1 win over the Kings on Thursday.

    Aube-Kubel had gone four games without scoring before Thursday, but you wouldn't have been able to tell after his sweet wrister beat Jonathan Quick on a breakaway in this one. It was an even-strength goal that came as Aube-Kubel left the penalty box. The 25-year-old center is up to six goals and seven assists in 26 contests with the Avalanche this season.

  • Avalanche's Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Adds goal, assist in loss

    Aube-Kubel contributed a goal and an assist in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Predators on Tuesday.

    Aube-Kubel certainly did his part, also chipping in two hits. The 25-year-old now has three assists and three goals over his last five contests, and that increased production had the usually third-line forward skating at times on the second line with Nazem Kadri and Andre Burakovsky. Both of his points came while skating with the second unit, and his 14:44 of ice time Tuesday represented more than three minutes over his season average of 11:12. Aube-Kubel now has 12 points in 21 games.

  • Avalanche's Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Surprise source of offense

    Aube-Kubel scored twice, levied five hits, served two PIM and went plus-2 in Monday's 4-3 win over the Kraken.

    Aube-Kubel opened the scoring at 5:50 of the first period, and he sparked the Avalanche's comeback late in the second. The two-goal effort doubled his season total to four. He's up to 11 points, 41 shots on net, 54 hits, 33 PIM and a plus-5 rating in 27 games between the Avalanche and the Flyers this season. Aube-Kubel has gotten on the scoresheet in three of the last four games, but he's unlikely to work his way into a top-six role.

  • Avalanche's Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Sets up goal in win

    Aube-Kubel had an assist, three shots on goal and six hits in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over Toronto.

    Aube-Kubel racked up his second assist over the last three games when a shot deflected off his body that started a sequence leading to a Cale Makar tally. He's been along for the ride as the Avalanche, who rolled the dice on the forward when he was claimed off waivers from Philadelphia at a time when Colorado was dealing with injuries. The team has gone 15-4 in 19 games with Aube-Kubel in the lineup. He has two goals, six assists, 32 hits and is plus-6 while serving on the third line.

  • Avalanche's Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Collects another assist

    Aube-Kubel recorded an assist, four shots on goal, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 7-3 win over the Red Wings.

    Aube-Kubel set up Darren Helm for the Avalanche's third goal. The 25-year-old Aube-Kubel has three helpers in his last four games, though he's now gone eight contests without a goal. The Alberta native has seven points, 29 shots, 32 hits, 18 PIM and a plus-2 rating in 19 outings overall when accounting for his time with the Flyers to begin the season.

  • Avalanche's Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Manages helper Wednesday

    Aube-Kubel recorded an assist, three shots on goal and two hits in Wednesday's 7-3 win over the Rangers.

    Aube-Kubel logged just 9:18 of ice time Wednesday, as the Avalanche finished the game with only 10 forwards. The 25-year-old made his contribution on offense with a helper on a Mikko Rantanen tally. Aube-Kubel has put up five points in 11 games since the Avalanche claimed him off waivers from the Flyers.

    Aube-Kubel had one assist and one hit in Saturday's 6-5 overtime loss in Ottawa.

    Aube-Kubel and linemate Alex Newhook kept a puck alive in the Senators' end, and he eventually found Darren Helm alone in front to give the Avalanche a 1-0 lead just 1:26 into the first period. Aube-Kubel has four points through his first nine games with Colorado and should continue to play regularly while the Avs cope with injuries, including forward Nazem Kadri (undisclosed) who was scratched Saturday.

    Aube-Kubel notched an assist and three hits in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Predators.
