by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

MacKinnon produced an assist and four shots on goal in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Ducks.

MacKinnon set up Mikko Rantanen to get the Avalanche on the board in the third period. The helper gave MacKinnon eight points through six appearances this year. The superstar center has added 24 shots on net and a plus-2 rating as he continues to be one of the best point-producers in the league.

Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: One of each in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

MacKinnon scored a power-play goal on five shots and added an assist in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Kings.

MacKinnon did his damage in the first period, as he and Mikko Rantanen assisted on each other's goals. The Avalanche offense was silenced by Jonathan Quick after that. Through four games, MacKinnon has two tallies, five helpers, 16 shots on net and a plus-1 rating. He'll try to keep it rolling Friday in Anaheim.

Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Reaches 500 career points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

MacKinnon provided a pair of assists -- one on the power play -- in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Kings.

MacKinnon assisted on goals by Brandon Saad and Mikko Rantanen in the contest. The latter helper gave MacKinnon 500 career points (191 goals, 309 assists) in only 528 regular-season games. He's the fourth player in Avalanche history to reach that milestone, and the seventh in franchise history that includes the Quebec Nordiques era. For 2020-21, MacKinnon already has five points (three on the power play) and 11 shots through three outings.

Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Paces Avs in blowout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

MacKinnon scored a goal on five shots and dished two assists in Friday's 8-0 drubbing of the Blues.

MacKinnon's goal and one of his assists came on the power play. The 25-year-old superstar was kept quiet in Wednesday's first meeting with the Blues, but he responded in a big way Friday. MacKinnon hasn't produced less than 93 points in a season over the last three years, although it'll be tough to hit that mark in 2020-21's 56-game campaign. He should still exceed a point-per game with a large share of his offense coming with the man advantage.

Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Silenced in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

MacKinnon had four shots on net over a forward-high 19:24 of ice time in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to St. Louis.

MacKinnon was silenced by goalie Jordan Binnington and not on the ice for the Avalanche's lone goal, a power play tally by Andre Burakovsky. MacKinnon and the Avalanche will look to shake off the loss when the teams meet again in Denver on Friday.

Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Finishes postseason with 25 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

MacKinnon racked up nine goals and 25 points through 15 games in the 2020 postseason.

Despite his team being eliminated by Dallas in Round 2, MacKinnon still sits third in playoff points behind Tampa's Nikita Kucherov (28 in 21 games) and Brayden Point (26 in 19). The Nova Scotia native has become one of the hockey's most exciting players and, at just 25 years old, he figures to keep scoring at over a point-per-game rate for years to come.

Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Tacks on pair of points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

MacKinnon scored an empty-net goal and added an assist in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Stars in Game 6.

MacKinnon had a beauty of a pass to Mikko Rantanen for the Avalanche's third goal of the contest before adding more insurance with his empty-netter. The two-point effort gave MacKinnon 25 (nine goals, 16 helpers) during his 14-game point streak to start the playoffs. He'll likely need to stretch the streak again in Friday's Game 7 to keep the Avalanche's season going.

Through 13 games, MacKinnon has yet to be held off the scoresheet. He's complied eight goals, 15 helpers, 60 shots on goal and a plus-11 rating in the playoffs.

Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Point streak at 10 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

MacKinnon scored a goal on eighth shots and added an assist, both on the power play, in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Stars in Game 2.

MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen set each other up for the Avalanche's two goals, but they had no answer to five straight tallies from the Stars. Through 10 games, MacKinnon has seven goals and 18 points -- he's yet to be held off the scoresheet in the playoffs.

Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Extends point streak to nine games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

MacKinnon scored twice and added an assist in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Stars in Game 1.

MacKinnon led the way for the Avalanche, adding six shots on goal and a plus-3 rating. A lack of depth scoring saw them fall behind 1-0 to start the second-round series. MacKinnon has points in nine straight games to start the playoffs, racking up six goals and 10 helpers in that span. The 24-year-old seems poised to put up big numbers regardless of the result.

Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Lights up Arizona in clincher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

MacKinnon had two goals on a game-high six shots and added two assists in Wednesday's 7-1 win over Arizona in Game 5.

MacKinnon virtually single-handedly eliminated the Coyotes, needing less than 14 minutes of playing time to earn No. 1 star honors with his four points. He scored twice in a 58-second span during the second period to turn a 3-0 cushion into a 5-0 rout. MacKinnon also assisted on Nazem Kadri's power-play goal in the first period and set up Nikita Zadorov's even-strength tally late in the second. The outburst allowed MacKinnon to take over the NHL playoff scoring lead with 13 points (four goals, nine assists) in eight games.

Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Collects two more assists Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

MacKinnon picked up two assists Monday, one on the power play, during the Avalanche's 7-1 win over the Coyotes in Game 4 of their first-round series.

The first helper was the prettiest. With time winding down in the first period, MacKinnon gathered the puck at his own blue line, picked up speed through the neutral zone and then blew past the Arizona defense to get a shot on Darcy Kuemper, with Nazem Kadri there to clean up the rebound. MacKinnon has a point in seven straight games to begin this postseason, piling up two goals and nine points in total, and he'll look to stay hot Wednesday in Game 5 as the Avs try to eliminate the Coyotes.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

MacKinnon picked up two assists, one on the power play, in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Coyotes during Game 1.

He was credited with the secondary helper on a power-play tally by Nazem Kadri midway through the third period that opened the scoring, then set up Mikko Rantanen for the game's final goal less than 90 seconds later. MacKinnon has found the scoresheet in all four playoff games so far, scoring a goal and five points.

Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Back at it
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

MacKinnon (undisclosed) is practicing normally Saturday, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

MacKinnon missed practice Thursday and Friday with an undisclosed issue, but he appears to be good to go ahead of Sunday's flight to Edmonton. The Hart Trophy finalist will center Colorado's top line and first power-play unit during the playoffs.

Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Misses practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

MacKinnon (undisclosed) was absent from Thursday's practice,'s Rick Sadowski reports.

This marks MacKinnon's first absence from practice since training camp began July 13, so it's quite possible he was simply given a day off Thursday. The Hart Trophy finalist racked up 35 goals and 93 points in 69 games during the regular season.

Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Joins Phase 2 skates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

MacKinnon (lower body) joined his teammates on the ice Monday as part of the NHL's Return to Play Plan, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

MacKinnon was originally expected to miss 1-2 weeks due to his lower-body issue and it's now been close to three months since the league went on hiatus. Despite playing in just 69 games this season, the 24-year-old forward reached the 35-goal and 90-point marks for the third straight season. Heading into the postseason, the world-class center should be a near-lock for most playoff pools and also a top-end DFS option.

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 left Monday's game in Los Angeles with a lower-body injury and is not expected to return, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

MacKinnon saw 11:37 of ice time in Monday's game before exiting with an injury in the second period. It's unclear how serious the injury is, but an update should be available before Wednesday's tilt with the Rangers. The 24-year-old forward has 35 goals and 93 points in 69 games this season.
