Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Facing 1-2 week absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

MacKinnon will be sidelined for 1-to-2 weeks with a lower-body injury, Marc Moser of Altitude Sports 950 reports.

The Avalanche simply can't catch a break injury-wise, as they'll now be without three of their top-five scorers for Wednesday's game against the Rangers. For now, Vladislav Namestnikov will likely slide into MacKinnon's spot on Colorado's top line, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Nazem Kadri (lower body) take over once he's given the green light.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

MacKinnon scored two goals one a game-high nine shots Tuesday in a 7-4 loss to Winnipeg. He also had a minus-4 rating.

The 24-year-old is as reliable a fantasy asset as there is in the NHL. He's produced 58 points in 40 games, putting him on pace for his first 100-point season.
