Avalanche's Cale Makar: Adds assist in comeback effort
Makar posted an assist and three shots on goal in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Blues.
The star defenseman's first point of the year was a secondary helper on J.T. Compher's third-period goal. Makar has added six shots on goal, two hits and two blocked shots through two games, but the Avalanche's dangerous power play has yet to convert. That's where Makar can do a lot of his scoring, as 22 of his 44 points last season came with the man advantage. Despite a somewhat slow start, fantasy managers have little to worry about with the Alberta native -- his offense will be just fine over the course of a full season.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Cale Makar: Uneventful Opening Night
Makar had three shots, one hit, one blocked shot and finished minus-1 over 22:31 of ice time in Wednesday's 4-2 win over Chicago.
Makar did not set a skate on the ice during a preseason game, so this was his first game action since the playoffs last season. The 23-year-old blueliner showed some dynamic moments, but also some plays where he was running around, and finished second among defensemen in ice time.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Cale Makar: Will be ready Opening Night
Avalanche assistant coach Nolan Pratt said Makar (undisclosed) will be ready for Wednesday's season-opener against the Blackhawks, Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now reports.

Per Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com, Makar (undisclosed) wore a regular jersey during Sunday's practice, indicating he's been cleared for contact.
Makar was limited to non-contact drills prior to Sunday's practice, but it appears as though the electrifying blueliner is no longer dealing with those restrictions.

Avalanche's Cale Makar: Wears non-contact jersey
Makar (undisclosed) is wearing a non-contact jersey for Thursday's training camp practice, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.
