Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Dishes pair of helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

MacKinnon notched two assists, two shots on goal and a pair of hits in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Golden Knights in Game 6.

MacKinnon helped out on goals by Devon Toews and Mikko Rantanen, but it wasn't enough to force a Game 7 in the second round. The 25-year-old MacKinnon had 15 points, 38 shots on net and a plus-6 rating in 10 playoff contests. He was held off the scoresheet for three straight games prior to Thursday, which likely helped the Golden Knights overcome the Avalanche's 2-0 series lead. In 2021-22 fantasy drafts, MacKinnon should be a top-3 pick.

Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Racks up three points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

MacKinnon (undisclosed) scored twice on six shots, dished an assist and added five hits in Monday's 4-1 win over the Blues in Game 1.

MacKinnon logged 21:14 of ice time in his return from an injury that cost him four games near the end of the regular season. The 25-year-old superstar was back in his familiar first-line role that earned him 20 goals and 45 helpers in 48 contests in the regular season. MacKinnon remains the centerpiece of the Avalanche's offense, and he's off to a great start in the postseason.

Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Paves way for Game 1 return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

MacKinnon (undisclosed) practiced in a full-contact sweater Saturday, so he'll be ready to return for Monday's series opener against the Blues, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

MacKinnon missed the final two games of the regular season, but his return to practice Saturday confirms the suspicion that those absences were mostly precautionary. That notion was further confirmed by coach Jared Bednar, as Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now reports that Bednar expects to have MacKinnon in the Game 1 lineup. Colorado's arguably the team to beat as the playoffs get underway, and MacKinnon is a big part of the reason why, as he racked up 20 goals and 45 assists in 48 regular-season games.

Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Out next two games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Per Peter Baugh of The Athletic, MacKinnon (undisclosed) won't play Wednesday or Thursday against the Kings, but he should be ready to return for Game 1 of the Avalanche's first-round playoff series.

The specific nature of MacKinnon's issue remains a mystery, but it appears as though the Avalanche are likely just exercising caution with their star center ahead of postseason play. MacKinnon was exceptional during the regular season, racking up 20 goals, 65 points and 206 shots on net in 48 games. He should be one of the first players selected in this year's playoff pools.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

MacKinnon (lower body) saw 20:32 of ice time and fired two shots on goal in Monday's 2-1 win over the Golden Knights.

MacKinnon missed two games with the injury. The 25-year-old center has been fantastic as the cornerstone of the Avalanche's offense this year. He's produced 20 goals, 65 points, 206 shots on net and a plus-22 rating through 48 contests and should remain in a hearty top-line role throughout the playoffs.

Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Returning for pivotal matchup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

MacKinnon (lower body) will return to the lineup for Monday's game against the Golden Knights, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

MacKinnon participated in morning skate without limitations and feels good enough to make his return from a two-game absence for this pivotal West division showdown. Colorado trails Vegas by four points with a game in hand, but the Avalanche still control their own destiny. A regulation win Monday followed by a pair of victories over the Kings would lock up the division title, and having the productive MacKinnon (20 goals, 45 assists in 47 games) back in tow might just help the Avalanche accomplish that feat.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

MacKinnon (lower body) won't play Saturday versus the Kings, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

MacKinnon will miss a second straight game with the injury. Since the Avalanche are firmly in a playoff spot, they won't risk aggravating MacKinnon's injury before the postseason begins. The 25-year-old will try to get healthy ahead of Monday's game in Vegas.
