    Rantanen didn't waste a pretty feed from Artturi Lehkonen, scoring his 29th goal (11 on the power play) of the season. Rantanen later returned the favor -- he was the secondary helper on Lehkonen's empty-net tally. The two-point effort was the 21st in 54 contests for Rantanen.

  • Avalanche's Mikko Rantanen: Opens scoring in loss

Rantanen is up to 28 tallies, 67 points, 171 shots on net, 33 blocked shots, 28 hits, 28 PIM and a plus-3 rating through 51 outings overall. He's been nearly automatic in a top-line spot alongside Nathan MacKinnon, though the two star forwards could be split up should head coach Jared Bednar wants to spark other players.

    Rantanen picked up helpers on all four of Nathan MacKinnon's tallies Wednesday while adding a goal in the third period for a season-high five points in the win.

  • Avalanche's Mikko Rantanen: Another two-goal effort

    Rantanen scored two goals, one on the power play, in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Flyers.

    The 27-year-old continues to shine. Rantanen has 10 multi-point performances in the last 20 games, compiling 14 goals and 29 points over that stretch. He's up to 26 goals and 60 points in 47 contests, putting him on pace for his second straight 100-point campaign.

  • Avalanche's Mikko Rantanen: Lights lamp twice in Ottawa

    Rantanen scored two goals in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Senators.

    The 27-year-old old winger got his team on the board midway through the first period before snapping the puck past Mads Sogaard late in the second, kicking off a run of five unanswered goals by Colorado. Rantanen, like linemate Nathan MacKinnon, has a nine-game point streak going, and he's produced six goals and 14 points during his surge. Rantanen will need to heat up even further if he's going to match last season's career-high 55 goals, but with 24 tallies and 58 points through 45 games, he's on pace to top 40 goals and 100 points for the second time.

  • Avalanche's Mikko Rantanen: Garners assist in loss

    Rantanen had an assist, four shots on net, one hit and two penalty minutes over 29:18 of ice time in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Canadiens.

    Rantanen found Devon Toews cross ice for a 4-on-4 tally that tied the contest at three goals apiece. It was the eighth straight game on the scoresheet for Rantanen, who has 12 points (four goals, eight assists) during the streak. He and linemates Nathan MacKinnon and Jonathan Drouin logged heavy ice time and will be needed to cover the loss of Valeri Nichushkin (personal), who will be away from the team for an indefinite period. The Avalanche are back at it Tuesday in Ottawa.

  • Avalanche's Mikko Rantanen: Seven-game, 11-point streak

    Rantanen had a goal and an assist in a 5-3 win over the Maple Leafs on Saturday.

    Rantanen got on the comeback train when he stuffed in a rebound at 13:13 of the second period to cut Toronto's lead to 3-2. The points stretched his current streak to seven games and 11 points (four goals, seven assists). Rantanen remains in the NHL's top 10 scorers with 55 points in 43 games, which is a 105-point pace. That would be his second straight season with that many points, and it would further entrench him on the current NHL Mt. Rushmore of elite talent.

    Rantanen recorded a pair of power-play assists, six shots on goal and two PIM in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Golden Knights.

    Rantanen set up both of Valeri Nichushkin's goals in the contest. During his six-game point streak, Rantanen has three goals and six helpers, with six of those nine points coming with the man advantage. The 27-year-old winger is up to 53 points (27 on the power play), 146 shots on net and a minus-1 rating through 42 appearances. Rantanen remains in a top-line role, though he's proven himself successful virtually anywhere in the top six in recent years.

  • Avalanche's Mikko Rantanen: Nets power-play marker

    Rantanen scored a power-play goal on four shots, blocked two shots and went minus-2 in Monday's 4-3 shootout win over the Bruins.

    Rantanen saw a season-high 30:23 of ice time, leading all Avalanche forwards in the contest. Head coach Jared Bednar has shown no hesitation in leaning on his top line and first defense pairing while leaving few minutes for players at the bottom of the lineup. The goal extended Rantanen's point streak to five games (three goals, four assists). He's now at 21 tallies, 51 points (25 on the power play), 140 shots on net and a minus-1 rating through 41 appearances, putting him on pace to top 100 points for the second season in a row.

  • Avalanche's Mikko Rantanen: Sends game into OT

    Rantanen scored a goal on four shots over 28:29 of ice time in Thursday's 5-4 overtime win over the Stars.

    Rantanen got some puck luck with just over a minute left in the third period for the score that sent the game into overtime. Cale Makar's shot from the blue line was tipped by Logan O'Connor then bounced wildly around the crease and off Rantanen's leg for his 20th goal of the season. Since his nine-game goal drought in December, Rantanen has not gone more than one game without a tally. The top-line forward has 17 points (eight goals, nine assists) over the last 12 games. He's now reached the 20-goal threshold in seven of the last eight seasons.

    Rantanen scored a power-play goal on seven shots in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Sharks.

    Rantanen surged to close out December, racking up seven goals and seven assists over the last 10 games of the month. The winger's tally Sunday opened the scoring in the first period. For the season, he's produced 45 points (22 on the power play), 126 shots on net and a plus-2 rating through 37 appearances. Rantanen continues to be one of the Avalanche's most reliable forwards.

  • Avalanche's Mikko Rantanen: One of each on power play

    Rantanen had a goal and an assist on the power play in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Coyotes. He added two shots, one block and one hit to his line over 24:13 of ice time.

    Rantanen put the Avalanche on top late in the first period, one-timing a feed from Nathan MacKinnon. He later returned the favor for MacKinnon on a goal that put the Avs up 4-0, before a shocking third-period collapse. And Rantanen was on ice for four of Arizona's five goals. Forgetting about the loss for a moment, the good news is that Rantanen has emerged from a recent nine-game scoring slump; he has six goals and seven assists over the last eight games.
