Jost scored a goal on five shots in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Coyotes.
Jost finally deposited his first goal of the season in his 16th appearance. He hadn't registered a point since Jan. 26 against the Sharks when he had one assist. The 22-year-old has topped 20 points in each of the last three seasons, so his slow start to 2020-21 is concerning. With little else on his stat line (18 shots, 10 hits, eight PIM), fantasy managers can leave Jost off their rosters.
Jost was activated from non-roster injured reserve Saturday, per the NHL's official media site.
Jost is eligible to play in Saturday's game against the Golden Knights after missing the last two games while in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol. However, it's unclear if he'll draw into the lineup.
Jost was activated off the league's COVID-19 protocol list Wednesday, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.
Jost was expected to return to the lineup for Saturday's game before this news broke, so his clearance isn't quite a surprise. Jost has suited up in 11 games this season, earning just one helper across 14:08 of average ice time. The 22-year-old will still need to be added to the active roster in order to suit up in Saturday's contest.
Jost (COVID-19 protocol) is expected to return to game action for Saturday's outdoor game against Vegas in Lake Tahoe, Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now reports.
Jost was one of three Avalanche regulars sidelined for Sunday's game in Vegas due to COVID-19 restrictions. Head coach Jared Bednar expects Gabriel Landeskog (COVID-19 protocol) and Samuel Girard (COVID-19 protocol) to join Jost for Saturday's game.
Jost (COVID-19 protocol) was placed on non-roster injured reserve Sunday, per CapFriendly.

Jost (COVID-19 protocol) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Golden Knights, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.
Jost has been in the league's protocol since Feb. 3. He has yet to return to the team. It's unclear when he'll be available next. Pierre-Edouard Bellemare (knee) likely will enter the lineup in Jost's place.
Jost was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Wednesday, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.
Jost is the only player on the Avalanche that's currently in the league's protocol. There's a good chance that he misses time as a result. Through the first 11 games, Jost notched just one point and seven hits.
Jost notched an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Sharks.
Jost entered Tuesday with no points from his first six games, so this is a small sign of improvement. The 22-year-old has been confined to a bottom-six role this season, and the Avalanche's offense has leaned toward being top-heavy. Jost has added four shots on goal, three hits and six PIM in seven outings, so there's not much to like here from a fantasy perspective.
Jost had one hit over 14:59 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Kings.
Jost is having a quiet start to the season, failing to land on the scoresheet through three games. He's one of three forwards without a point. The 22-year-old winger has one shot, three hits and two PIM while averaging 14:56 of ice time on the third line.
Jost accepted his qualifying offer from the Avalanche on Sunday according to CapFriendly.
The 22-year-old forward has been one of Colorado's most consistent depth players in recent years. Jost tallied eight goals and 23 points during the 2019-20 campaign, his third straight season with at least 20 points. Expect him to maintain a similar role in the Avalanche's bottom-six next season.
Jost produced 23 points in 67 games prior to the mid-March suspension of play.
The 2016 10th overall pick just turned 22 and has already logged 202 regular-season NHL contests. Jost has yet to develop into a true scoring threat, though, as evidenced by his 31 goals over three campaigns. Surrounded by plenty of dangerous scoring weapons in Denver, he won't be expected to carry the offensive load anytime soon, so there's really no reason for the team to rush Jost in his development.
Jost scored a power-play goal on two shots, dished two hits and added two PIM in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Rangers.
Jost now has 23 points, five on the power play, through 67 appearances this year. The 21-year-old forward has added 58 hits, 115 shots and a plus-11 rating.
Jost posted two power-play assists in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Ducks.
Jost has recently turned a corner on offense, with two goals and four assists in his last five games. He doubled his power-play production with Wednesday's two-helper effort. Through 63 contests, the 21-year-old center has 22 points, 107 shots and a plus-14 rating.
Jost scored two goals on four shots while adding two hits, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 3-2 win over the Hurricanes.
He potted goals in the first and second periods to give the Avs a 2-0 lead, ending a 36-game goalless drought that last saw him find the back of the net at the end of November. The 21-year-old has spent most of the campaign in a bottom-six role that has afforded him few offensive opportunities, and despite Friday's big effort, Jost has only seven goals and 19 points through 60 games on the season.
Jost registered zero points and two PIM in a 3-2 loss to the Capitals on Thursday.
The 21-year-old has gone cold with only one assist in the last seven games. He also has no goals and three assists in the past 16 contests. Jost last scored Nov. 30, which was his fifth goal of the season. At the time, he was well on his way to a career high in the category, but now he's in serious danger of failing to record his third straight 10-goal campaign. Jost has five goals and 16 points with a plus-13 rating and 85 shots in 53 games this season.
Jost posted an assist and five shots on goal in Monday's 6-3 win over the Red Wings.
Jost set up Matt Nieto at 5:12 of the third period for what would be the game-winning goal. The assist snapped a seven-game funk for Jost, who now has 15 points and 80 shots on goal in 46 contests this season. While his production is more than that of a typical fourth-liner, he's not likely to help fantasy owners outside of deeper formats.
Jost posted zero points and no shots on net with two PIM in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Stars on Tuesday.
Jost is still having a pretty solid season, but in order to keep pace with his numbers from 2018-19, he'll have to break out of this scoring slump soon. He has five goals and 13 points with a plus-9 rating in 43 games this season.
Jost posted a plus-1 rating and two PIM in a 5-2 victory over the Devils on Saturday.
While this was Jost's 21st game without a point since Halloween, he's still experiencing a decent season and signs point to a stronger second half. Jost has four assists and a plus-3 rating in the last seven games, so while he's not scoring, he's still contributing. Jost already has 13 points, which puts him slightly ahead of last season's pace, when he posted 26 points. Jost has just five goals, but he's getting more shots on net per game this season. If his shooting percentage rebounds in the second half, he could go on a scoring spree.
Jost recorded a pair of assists in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Blackhawks.
Jost helped out on a goal by Ryan Graves in the first period and the first of two Matt Calvert scores in the second. The pair of assists are Jost's first contributions on the scoresheet in 10 games in December. The 21-year-old is up to 11 points, 59 shots on goal and a plus-8 rating through 33 contests.
Jost has one goal with no assists and a plus-3 rating in the last 13 games.
The 21-year-old had a hot start behind a 26.7 shooting percentage in the first eight games this season. During that stretch, Jost posted a hat trick versus the Lightning. But since his hat trick, he has one goal in 22 games. Jost has five goals and nine points with a plus-6 rating in 30 games this season.
