Avalanche's Samuel Girard: Picks up pair of assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Girard registered two assists and a pair of blocked shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Golden Knights in Game 2.

Girard set up goals by Brandon Saad and Tyson Jost in the first period, with the latter's tally coming on the power play. The 23-year-old Girard is up to five assists through six playoff contests. He's added seven shots on net, seven blocked shots and eight hits in a second-pairing role.

Avalanche's Samuel Girard: Pockets helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Girard notched an assist, four hits, two blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Golden Knights in Game 1.

Girard had the secondary helper on Gabriel Landeskog's first-period tally. Through five playoffs games, Girard has three assists, a plus-5 rating, seven shots on net, seven hits and six blocked shots. The 23-year-old defenseman should provide depth offense from the blue line, although he's not typically one to make a large physical impact on the ice.

Avalanche's Samuel Girard: Garners helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Girard registered an assist in Monday's 4-1 win over the Blues in Game 1.

Girard helped out on a Gabriel Landeskog goal in the third period. The 23-year-old Girard was productive in a top-four role this season with 32 points in 48 contests during the regular season. The Quebec native is expected to continue in that role with work on the second power-play unit during the playoffs.

Avalanche's Samuel Girard: Earns assist in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Girard (undisclosed) posted an assist, three shots on goal and two blocked shots in 19:02 of ice time in Wednesday's 6-0 win over the Kings.

Girard missed six games with the injury, but he was able to return in a top-four role Wednesday. The 23-year-old blueliner is up to 32 points, 78 shots on net, 48 blocked shots and a plus-16 rating through 47 outings. Girard could be rested in the Avalanche's regular-season finale Thursday versus the Kings, but since the Presidents' Trophy is still on the line, there's a decent chance he stays in the lineup.

Avalanche's Samuel Girard: Will play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Girard (undisclosed) will return to the lineup against the Kings on Wednesday, per Altitude Sports Radio 92.5 FM.

Girard returns to the lineup following a six-game stint on the sidelines due to his undisclosed injury. The 23-year-old blueliner was stuck in a six-game pointless streak prior to the injury and hasn't scored a goal since March 16 against the Ducks.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Girard (undisclosed) could be ready to return Wednesday or next Thursday against the Kings, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

Girard has missed Colorado's last three games with an undisclosed issue, but it sounds like he could be back for a contest or two before postseason play gets underway. He's racked up 31 points through 46 games this season.

Avalanche's Samuel Girard: Expected to miss two weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Girard (undisclosed) is expected to be out two weeks, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

This news represents a big loss for the Avalanche's blue line, as Girard has 31 points in 46 contests this year. It's unclear if he'll be ready for the start of the playoffs, but the Avalanche have little incentive to rush him back before then with their playoff spot already confirmed.

Avalanche's Samuel Girard: Missing Saturday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Girard (undisclosed) will not be available for Saturday's game against San Jose, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

Girard suffered an injury late in Friday's win over the Sharks and he'll miss Saturday's rematch as a result. The 22-year-old has 31 points and a plus-15 rating in 46 games this season. He'll be questionable for Monday's tilt with San Jose.

Avalanche's Samuel Girard: Injured Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Girard (undisclosed) left Friday's game against San Jose and did not return, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports.

Girard left the game late in the third period after already skating for 21:11 in the contest. It's unclear how serious the injury is, but it's possible he was kept out of the remainder of the 3-0 win as a precaution. The 22-year-old is having a career year with 31 points in 46 games.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Girard posted an assist and three blocked shots in Monday's 4-2 win over the Coyotes.

Girard set up Brandon Saad's first-period tally. The helper snapped Girard's three-game point drought. He's run a little cold in April with just three assists through seven outings. The Quebec native is at 31 points, 69 shots on net, 37 blocked shots and a plus-16 rating in 40 contests overall.

Avalanche's Samuel Girard: Sets up Donskoi early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Girard had an assist, one shot on goal, one hit and one blocked shot in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to Vegas.

Girard initiated offense a minute into the game, rushing from his own end to the Golden Knights' zone and fed Joonas Donskoi for the game's first goal. It was the blueliner's third consecutive game with at least one point and 21st assist, second on Avs in helpers behind Nathan MacKinnon. Girard is rolling right now with seven points over the last seven games.

Avalanche's Samuel Girard: Slides power-play helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Girard produced a power-play assist in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Golden Knights.

Girard set up Joonas Donskoi's tally at 4:04 of the second period as the second power-play unit sparked the Avalanche's offense. The 22-year-old Girard has been in a groove lately with six points in his last six games. The defenseman continues to produce well with 25 points, 53 shots on net, a plus-15 rating and 27 blocked shots through 30 games. Nine of his 20 assists have come with the man advantage.

Avalanche's Samuel Girard: Dishes pair of assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Girard recorded two assists and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Coyotes.

Girard set up Nathan MacKinnon's go-ahead tally in the second period and added a secondary assist on Valeri Nichushkin's goal in the third.

Avalanche's Samuel Girard: Contributes assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Girard notched an assist, five shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Wild.

Girard provided a centering pass for Mikko Rantanen to score at 19:02 of the first period. The 22-year-old Girard has excelled in March with three tallies and six helpers in 10 games. The defenseman has 22 points, 50 shots and a plus-8 rating through 26 appearances. With Cale Makar back from an upper-body injury, Girard is likely to lose some power-play ice time -- he's produced eight assists with the man advantage this year.

Avalanche's Samuel Girard: Picks up pair of points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Girard scored a goal on three shots, dished an assist and went plus-3 in Tuesday's 8-4 win over the Ducks.

Girard's goal was a bit fluky, as it deflected off of Ducks defenseman Josh Mahura before going in. The two-point game put Girard at 21 points in 25 outings. He's never finished a season lower than 23 points, and the 22-year-old has a good chance to reset his career high in 2020-21. His five goals this year are already a personal best in that category -- he tallied four times in each of the last three campaigns.

Avalanche's Samuel Girard: Sets up game-winning goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Girard notched an assist and two shots on goal in Wednesday's 2-1 overtime win over the Coyotes.

Girard provided the primary helper on Gabriel Landeskog's tally in the final minute of overtime. With four assists in his last three outings, Girard is doing good work on the scoresheet. The 22-year-old rearguard has 19 points (four tallies, 15 helpers), 37 shots on net and a plus-3 rating in 22 games. Eight of his assists have come on the power play, and he should continue to see top-unit usage while Cale Makar (upper body) is out.

Girard found Andre Burakovsky inching in from the point and fed the Austrian sniper for his fifth goal of the season. The assist gives Girard a team-high eight helpers on the power play, and he's tied for third on the team with 18 overall points (four goals, 14 assists).

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Girard collected a pair of assists with three hits and two shots in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to Anaheim.

Girard assisted on Mikko Rantanen's two goals, including one with the man advantage. The 22-year-old has found the scoresheet in four of his last five contests (two goals, four assists) and is already halfway to the career-high 34 points he racked up in 70 games a year ago.
