  • Avalanche's Kurtis MacDermid: Fills in on blue line

    MacDermid had four hits and finished plus-1 over 10:32 of ice time in Monday's 3-2 loss to Washington.

    MacDermid entered the active lineup for the first time in six games with defensemen Erik Johnson (lower body) and Devon Toews (undisclosed) out of action. He could get more starts with Toews out through the team's upcoming three-game road trip.

  • Avalanche's Kurtis MacDermid: Signs two-year extension

    MacDermid signed a two-year, $1.975 million contract extension with the Avalanche on Tuesday.

    MacDermid has had a limited role with the Avalanche in 2021-22, picking up five points, 72 PIM and 96 hits while averaging just 7:27 of ice time through 53 appearances. He'll likely continue to fill a similar role over the next two campaigns.

  • Avalanche's Kurtis MacDermid: Makes rare contribution

    MacDermid registered an assist and two shots on goal in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Sharks.

    MacDermid helped out on an Alex Newhook tally in the second period. This was MacDermid's second point in the last four games, but he's rarely that productive on offense. The 28-year-old has five points, 93 hits, 72 PIM and 43 shots on net through 52 contests in a versatile role that's seen him play on both the fourth forward line and the third defensive pairing.

  • Avalanche's Kurtis MacDermid: Finds twine in win

    MacDermid scored a goal on three shots, went plus-3 and added three hits in Friday's 6-3 win over the Flyers.

    MacDermid ended a 19-game point drought with his second-period tally Friday. The 28-year-old has seen time as a forward and a defenseman this season, but he's mainly been on the blue line in his last seven appearances with Samuel Girard (lower body) out. Through 49 contests, MacDermid has four points, 86 hits, 72 PIM and 41 shots on net as an intimidating physical presence.

  • Avalanche's Kurtis MacDermid: Enters for injured Girard

    MacDermid had one shot on net and two hits over 8:50 of ice time in Thursday's 2-0 loss to the Hurricanes.

    MacDermid, who was a healthy scratch the previous two games, entered Thursday's active lineup as a defenseman, filling in for the injured Samuel Girard (lower body). Girard flew back to Denver for further evaluation, which could be a sign of the injury's severity. MacDermid has not registered a point over the last 14 games.

  • Avalanche's Kurtis MacDermid: Scratched Monday

    MacDermid was a healthy scratch for Monday's game against the Islanders.

    It was MacDermid's turn to sit in the press box, as Darren Helm returned to the lineup after being scratched Saturday. MacDermid, a hybrid defenseman/forward, is one of four forwards that take turns as a healthy scratch.

  • Avalanche's Kurtis MacDermid: Takes on another heavyweight

    MacDermid had a five-minute fighting major and 2:03 of ice time in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Flames.

    MacDermid has been the preferred fourth-line winger of late and replaced the scratched Darren Helm in the lineup Saturday. Within the last week, he was active instead of Nicolas Aube-Kubel and Tyson Jost, who left the game with a facial injury. MacDermid's biggest contribution to the event was a heavyweight bout with Calgary's Milan Lucic, the fifth fighting major of the season for the 6-foot-5, 233-pound hybrid defenseman/forward. MacDermid previously squared off with the 6-foot-1, 220-pound Nicolas Deslauriers (twice), the 6-foot-6, 233-pound Jordan Greenway and the 6-foot-2, 225-pound Ryan Reaves.

  • Avalanche's Kurtis MacDermid: Moving to forward

    MacDermid will operate as a fourth-line forward for Tuesday's game against Arizona, Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now reports.

    MacDermid filled in on the blue line the last few games, but the hybrid player slides up to forward with the expected return of defenseman Ryan Murray from an upper-body injury. MacDermid has three points (one goal), 27 shots on net, 46 hits, a team-high 56 PIM and is plus-4 while averaging 7:29 of ice time over 31 games.

  • Avalanche's Kurtis MacDermid: Gets first tally of season

    MacDermid scored a goal on four shots, doled out two hits and added two PIM in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Bruins.

    MacDermid opened the scoring at 11:25 of the first period with his first goal in an Avalanche sweater. The 27-year-old has rarely been a source of offense this season with three points in 29 contests. MacDermid is in the lineup for toughness -- he's amassed 56 PIM and 44 hits while filling in on either the third defensive pairing or fourth forward line at various times.

  • Avalanche's Kurtis MacDermid: Engages in heavyweight battle

    MacDermid had one shot on goal and a five-minute fighting major in Wednesday's 2-0 win over the Ducks.

    The 6-foot-5, 233-pound MacDermid and the 6-foot-1, 220-pound Nicolas Deslauriers squared off in one of the better fights seen in an NHL game this season, the fifth time these two have battled. Deslauriers took exception to what looked like a valid check on Kevin Shattenkirk, and from the time the first punch was thrown, the two engaged for nearly a minute. It was the second straight game MacDermid dropped the gloves; he went after the Wild's Jordan Greenway on Tuesday after the Minnesota forward swiped goalie Darcy Kuemper, causing the netminder to leave the game with a neck injury. MacDermid, who has rung up 28 PIM over the last four games, leads the Avalanche with 54 PIM this season.

  • Avalanche's Kurtis MacDermid: Could move to blue line Saturday

    MacDermid is likely to serve as a defenseman Saturday against the Coyotes, Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now reports.

    MacDermid served as a fourth-line forward in Friday's game between these same two teams; however, blueliner Ryan Murray left with an upper-body injury and the Avalanche will need a fill-in. The team did not call up anyone as a replacement, so if Murray is forced to sit Saturday, MacDermid will likely play defense with forward Gabriel Landeskog (COVID-19 protocols) expected to rejoin the team after missing three games.

  • Avalanche's Kurtis MacDermid: Picks up helper

    MacDermid notched an assist, four PIM and two hits in Friday's 4-3 shootout win over the Coyotes.

    Since the start of January, MacDermid has regularly served as a fourth-line winger rather than his natural position of defenseman. Despite the move to forward, his assist Friday was his first point since Dec. 8. The 27-year-old is more regarded for his toughness than his scoring ability -- he's at two helpers with 33 hits, 30 PIM, 17 shots on net and a minus-2 rating in 22 contests. He's never had more than eight points in a season, so he's unlikely to make a splash in fantasy regardless of role.

  • Avalanche's Kurtis MacDermid: Serving as winger Sunday

    MacDermid will skate as the left winger on the fourth line Sunday against Anaheim, Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now reports.

    MacDermid has served a hybrid role as a seventh defenseman and sometimes-forward for much of the season. With Bowen Byram ready to play Sunday, which gives Colorado six regular blueliners, MacDermid can focus on playing wing alongside Tyson Jost and Nicolas Aube-Kubel.

  • Avalanche's Kurtis MacDermid: Returns from COVID-19 protocols

    MacDermid has cleared the NHL's COVID-19 protocols and returned to practice, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    MacDermid will rejoin the third pair for the Avalanche's next contest. Through his eight December appearances, the 27-year-old has recorded one assist, 13 hits and eight shots on goal.

  • Avalanche's Kurtis MacDermid: Lands in protocols

    MacDermid was placed on the COVID-19 list Sunday, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    According to Baugh, the team expects MacDermid back in time for Wednesday's tilt with Dallas. The 27-year-old has just one assist through 15 games this season.

  • Avalanche's Kurtis MacDermid: Brings grit in limited time

    MacDermid logged an assist, 12 PIM, three hits and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 7-3 win over the Rangers.

    MacDermid doesn't add much offense or see big minutes when he's in the lineup, but he's valued for his toughness. That was on display Wednesday, as he roughed it up with Rangers blueliner Jacob Trouba after the latter's second-period hit on Nathan MacKinnon. MacDermid has one assist, 17 PIM, 13 hits and a minus-3 rating in 11 contests, and he should be in the lineup when the Avalanche utilize seven defensemen.

  • Avalanche's Kurtis MacDermid: Scratched Friday

    MacDermid was a healthy scratch Friday against Dallas.

    MacDermid filled in for Kiefer Sherwood in Colorado's previous game Wednesday, picking up two hits and a five-minute major, before heading back to the press box for Friday's 3-1 loss to the Stars. In six games this season, MacDermid is minus-3 with four shots on goal, eight hits, four blocked shots and five PIM while averaging 8:06 of ice time.

  • Avalanche's Kurtis MacDermid: Enters lineup for Girard

    MacDermid had two hits and two blocked shots while finishing minus-1 over 7:33 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to Vegas.

    MacDermid was added to the active lineup for the first time in three games due to the unavailability of Samuel Girard (upper body). MacDermid is averaging under 10 minutes of ice time in three games played and has yet to earn the full confidence of head coach Jared Bednar. The Avalanche recalled blueliner Jacob MacDonald from AHL Colorado, but he was a healthy scratch.

  • Avalanche's Kurtis MacDermid: Fills in for Johnson

    MacDermid had one shot on net and one blocked shot while finishing minus-1 over 10:23 of ice time in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Blues.

    MacDermid made his season debut, filling in for Jack Johnson, who entered COVID-19 protocols prior to the game. The blueliner didn't play the puck well when Brayden Schenn walked around him for St. Louis' second goal, and MacDermid was a distant sixth in ice time among Colorado defensemen. If the asymptomatic Johnson returns for Tuesday's game, MacDermid, who has played forward, could resurface on one of the lines, depending on the health of several forwards. Colorado played Saturday's game without Nathan MacKinnon (COVID-19 protocols), Valeri Nichushkin (upper body) or Gabriel Landeskog (suspension), and it lost Stefan Matteau early.

  • Avalanche's Kurtis MacDermid: Healthy scratch

    MacDermid did not suit up for Wednesday's season opener against Chicago.

    MacDermid is a defenseman that skated on the fourth line during Tuesday's practice after the Avalanche placed Nathan MacKinnon in the league's COVID-19 protocols. The Avalanche eventually opted to replace MacKinnon on the active roster with AHL call-up Jayson Megna, who served as the fourth-line center Wednesday.
