Top Avalanche News

  • Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Won't require surgery

    MacKinnon won't need to undergo surgery on his injured shoulder, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

    MacKinnon temporarily exited Wednesday's Game 7 loss to the Sharks after falling awkwardly into the boards, but he was ultimately able to return to that contest, which all but confirmed his injury likely wasn't overly serious. The 23-year-old superstar had his best season as a pro in 2018-19, setting career highs in goals (41), points (99) and shots on net (365) while appearing in all 82 regular-season contests, and should be one of the first forwards taken off the board during fantasy drafts next season.

  • Avalanche's Adam Werner: Inks entry-level contract

    Werner signed a two-year, entry-level deal with Colorado on Monday.

    Werner -- who was drafted by the club in the fifth round of the 2016 NHL Draft -- posted a 15-9 record, 2.02 GAA and .926 save percentage in 26 appearances for Farjestad BK (SHL) this season. The 22-year-old played in just four AHL games last season and is unlikely willing to return to North America just to play in the minors. The signing of Werner could be an indication the club is preparing to let Semyon Varlamov walk in free agency this summer.

  • Avalanche's Tyson Jost: Heading to Worlds

    Jost will join up with Team Canada at the 2019 IIHF World Championship, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

    While Jost will miss the opening game of the tournament versus Finland on Friday, he should be available for the remainder of the competition. In addition to holding open two spots, Team Canada is also looking to bolster its roster following the loss of John Tavares (oblique). The 20-year-old Jost set career highs in assists (15), points (26) and shots (114) in 70 games this season. The Alberta native will push for a more consistent top-six role next year and should challenge for the 30-point mark.

  • Avalanche's Vladislav Kamenev: Ends season on IR

    Kamenev (shoulder) ended the 2018-19 campaign on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

    Kamenev was deemed fit to play ahead of Game 3 against San Jose, so although he's technically still listed on injured reserve, he'll be ready to rock for next campaign's training camp. The 22-year-old forward finished the season with a modest two goals and five points in 23 appearances with the Avalanche.

  • Avalanche's Matt Calvert: Unable to shake injury bug

    Calvert missed Wednesday's Game 7 loss to the Sharks due to an upper-body injury.

    Although Calvert was unable to rejoin the lineup prior to Colorado's elimination from the playoffs, his upper-body injury isn't believed to be overly serious, so he should be back to 100 percent well ahead of next season's training camp. The veteran forward will play an important role for the Avalanche as a penalty-killing specialist in 2019-20, but his lack of offensive upside will keep him off the radar in most fantasy formats.

  • Avalanche's Alex Kerfoot: Collects assist

    Kerfoot posted an assist and two shots in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks in Game 7.

    Kerfoot finished the series with two helpers, and he was limited to only three assists in 12 postseason games. With only 10 hits and 17 shots on goal, Kerfoot did not account for much fantasy relevance in the playoffs. He enters the summer as an arbitration-eligible restricted free agent.

  • Avalanche's Colin Wilson: Registers assist

    Wilson picked up an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks in Game 7.

    Wilson provided good secondary scoring with two goals and two helpers over seven games in the second round. The 29-year-old had eight points in 12 games during the postseason. Wilson is a pending unrestricted free agent.

  • Avalanche's Gabriel Landeskog: Rakes in assist

    Landeskog managed an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks in Game 7.

    Landeskog was held to only four points in seven games in the second round after providing four points in five first-round games. The Swedish winger also added 35 hits and 18 blocked shots across 12 postseason appearances.

  • Avalanche's Samuel Girard: Tallies assist

    Girard had an assist, two hits, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks in Game 7.

    Girard posted two helpers and 11 blocked shots over nine postseason appearances. The soon-to-be 21-year-old blueliner will be looking to build on the 27 points he posted across 82 regular-season contests as he enters his third NHL season in 2019-20.

  • Avalanche's Tyson Jost: Finds twine again

    Jost scored a goal on two shots and added two hits in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks in Game 7.

    Jost scored in three consecutive games, accounting for nearly half of the Avalanche's seven tallies in that span. He ends the postseason with four points in 12 games.

  • Avalanche's Mikko Rantanen: Tallies in Game 7 loss

    Rantanen scored a goal on three shots in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks in Game 7.

    Rantanen began the playoffs working back from an upper-body injury, but managed to play in all 12 games for the Avalanche, recording six goals and eight assists during the playoff run. The Finnish winger should be a top fantasy option in 2019-20 after recording 87 points in the regular-season this year.

  • Avalanche's Philipp Grubauer: Gives up three goals

    Grubauer allowed three goals on 27 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks in Game 7.

    Grubauer was never able to fully recover from a two-goal first period, and Sharks winger Joonas Donskoi's goal in the second frame sealed the Avalanche's fate. Grubauer gave up 18 goals in the series, good for a 2.60 GAA and a .914 save percentage.

  • Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Back in action

    MacKinnon returned to the bench after he left Wednesday's game due to a shoulder injury, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

    MacKinnon fell awkwardly into the boards early in the first period, but was able to rejoin his team after a quick check-up in the locker room. Expect the superstar to resume his duties on the top line and on the power play.

  • Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Leaves Game 7

    Mackinnon left Wednesday's series-deciding game due to a shoulder injury and is currently being evaluated in the Avalanche locker room, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

    MacKinnon went into the boards awkwardly just two minutes into the game, and hasn't returned since. The Halifax native looked to be in a lot of pain, grabbing his shoulder as he left the ice. Expect the team to give an official word on his status as the game progresses.

  • Avalanche's Philipp Grubauer: Gets starting nod

    Grubauer will patrol the crease in Wednesday's Game 7 against the Sharks in San Jose, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

    Grubauer wasn't great in Game 6, allowing three goals on 22 shots, but he ultimately did enough to pick up his fourth home win of the playoffs, helping his team force a do-or-die Game 7. The German netminder will look to keep rolling and help guide his club to an appearance in the Western Conference finals against St. Louis by trying to secure his fourth road victory of this postseason Wednesday.
