Avalanche's Denis Malgin: Scores twice in win
Malgin scored a pair of goals in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Kings.
Malgin got a lucky bounce to open the scoring 1:28 into the second period.

Prior to Saturday, Malgin had gone eight games without a goal since scoring twice against the Blackhawks on March 20.

Avalanche's Denis Malgin: Earns helper in overtime win
Malgin notched an assist and three shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Sharks.
Malgin took Alex Newhook's spot in the top six and did alright with it. Malgin's helper came on a Jack Johnson tally in the first period. With just two assists over his last seven games, Malgin's not making a huge impact regardless of role. He's at 18 points, 102 shots on net, 63 hits and a plus-2 rating through 60 contests between the Avalanche and the Maple Leafs this season.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Denis Malgin: Contributes assist
Malgin produced an assist and three shots on goal in Monday's 5-1 win over the Ducks.

Malgin had three shots on goal, three hits and two blocked shots over 15:33 of ice time in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to Pittsburgh.
Malgin took regular shifts on the top line, replacing Evan Rodrigues (concussion). He took over for Rodrigues in third period of Monday's win over the Blackhawks, scoring a goal and assisting on another. Colorado head coach Jared Bednar liked what he saw and kept Malgin with Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen. His stint with Colorado began as a fourth-liner, but Malgin's showed offensive instincts and slowly worked his way into a top-six role. He has seven points (five goals) over the last 10 contests....

Avalanche's Denis Malgin: Puts Avs on top early
Malgin scored a goal on two shots and delivered one hit over 9:19 of ice time in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win over the Coyotes.
Malgin got the Avalanche on the board just two minutes into the game. He chased down Brad Hunt's clearing flip and sped by Juuso Valimaki before his nifty backhand shot got past Connor Ingram. Malgin had a would-be second goal wiped out in the second period due to a hand pass, but the fourth-line forward has provided an offensive spark of late. The goal that counted was his third on eight shots over the past four games. Malgin's scored six goals on 38 shots over 25 contests since joining Colorado.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Denis Malgin: Scores again Tuesday
Malgin scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 6-0 win over the Sharks.

For the season, the 26-year-old forward is up to seven tallies, four helpers, 80 shots on net, 46 hits and a minus-3 rating through 46 games between the Avalanche and the Maple Leafs. As long as Colorado continues to carry just 12 forwards on the NHL roster, his place in the lineup should be safe.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Denis Malgin: Rough night in loss
Malgin had two shots on goal, one hit and two blocked shots over 14:37 of ice time in Saturday's 7-3 loss to Dallas.
Malgin, who's averaged 9:38 TOI since being acquired by Colorado, was given prime shifts on the top line with Valeri Nichushkin (illness) unavailable. Normally a fourth-liner, Malgin has shown potential with the puck, but he was directly responsible for two Dallas scores. An off-target pass in his own end led the Stars' fifth goal, then he held the puck too long in front of his own net prior to the opponent's sixth marker.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Denis Malgin: Gets loose for breakaway goal
Malgin scored a goal in Sunday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Kraken.
Malgin was the recipient of a Cale Makar pass after the Avalanche came away with the puck in their own zone. The goal was Malgin's fourth over his last 10 games, but he's taken just 12 shots and doesn't have an assist in that span. The 26-year-old forward continues to log bottom-six minutes with the Avalanche. He's at 10 points, 77 shots, 45 hits and a minus-4 rating through 45 outings when accounting for his time with the Maple Leafs to begin the season.... See More ... See Less

Malgin picked off a pass and scored at 2:03 of the third period for his first goal with the Avalanche. It was his third tally of the season, the other two coming with the Maple Leafs prior to a mid-December trade that brought him to Denver. The 26-year-old has seven points, 67 shots on net, 42 hits and a minus-4 rating through 36 contests between the two teams this season, and he's mainly played in a bottom-six role with the Avalanche....

Avalanche's Denis Malgin: Grabs helper in return
Malgin logged an assist in Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Ducks.
Malgin missed nine games with an upper-body injury prior to his return Thursday. He was eased back into the lineup, playing on the fourth line and seeing just 8:03 of ice time. The 26-year-old was logging middle-six minutes prior to his injury, but it may be tough for him to regain that role after the Avalanche acquired Matt Nieto in a trade with the Sharks on Wednesday. Malgin is at six points, 60 shots on net, 40 hits and a minus-4 rating through 31 outings between the Avalanche and the Maple Leafs this season.... See More ... See Less
