Avalanche's Cale Makar: Rookie nets fifth goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Makar scored a goal on his lone shot and was plus-2 in Monday's 4-0 win over the Jets.

The 21-year-old opened the scoring with a beauty of a goal, working his way into the slot with some nifty stick-handling before beating Connor Hellebuyck with a wrist shot.

Both of Makar's goals came in the second period, flipping a 2-1 deficit into a 3-2 lead during the middle frame. The rookie defenseman has four goals and 17 points through his first 17 regular-season contests. A point-per-game pace likely isn't sustainable, but Makar's making a strong initial case for the Calder Trophy.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avalanche's Cale Makar: Notches power-play helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Makar had a power-play assist and two shots in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Stars.

Here's a shocker -- Makar's assist came on a Nathan MacKinnon power-play goal. The helper gives the 21-year-old defenseman 11 points in 13 games, with seven of his 10 assists coming with the man advantage. He's been consistent as well, with only three scoreless games so far this season. Fantasy owners who took the gamble on Makar in their drafts have to be happy with his production.

For the year, the rookie defenseman has 10 points through 11 games. Saturday marked the first time Makar had put more than three pucks on net in a game, giving him 16 shots this season.

The 20-year-old blueliner is off to a tremendous start, scoring at least one point in eight of 10 games so far, and Makar has nine points in total. With a regular spot on the Avs' top power-play unit in hand, the rookie is positioning himself as an early Calder Trophy favorite.

Avalanche's Cale Makar: Point streak at five games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Makar registered an assist in Monday's 6-3 win over the Capitals.

Makar has now recorded six helpers in five games to start his rookie year on a high note. Four of his helpers have come on the man advantage. Makar is doing a good job of replacing the void left by Tyson Barrie's move to the Maple Leafs over the summer.

Avalanche's Cale Makar: Plays provider Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

He's added six blocked shots and could be worth a look for fantasy owners in need depth on defense.

Avalanche's Cale Makar: Posts assist in 2019-20 debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Makar recorded an assist and one hit while playing 22:23 in his NHL regular-season debut in a 5-3 victory over Calgary on Thursday.

The 20-year-old dazzled during the 2018-19 postseason, recording a goal and six points, but this was actually Makar's first action during the regular season. Big things are expected from him because of that strong postseason performance, but owners should keep in mind that the 20-year-old will likely experience highs and lows during his first full 82-game slate.

Avalanche's Cale Makar: Adds helper, physicality
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Makar registered an assist and four hits in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Sharks in Game 4.

Makar has a goal and four helpers over seven postseason games to start his career, but Thursday marked the first time he had posted more than one hit in a game. Obviously, the offensive skill comes first with the first-round pick from 2017, but a little extra in the non-scoring stats is sure to appeal to fantasy owners as well.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 20-year-old blueliner won't be asked to do too much, but his offensive prowess has been on display since he joined the team, illustrating why the Avalanche selected him with the fourth overall pick in 2017.

Avalanche's Cale Makar: Set to make NHL debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

In his stead, Makar is expected to enter the lineup on the third defensive pair with Patrik Nemeth, and should see some power-play time on the second unit. The recently-crowned Hobey Baker winner will have huge expectations heading into his professional debut for Game 3.
