  • Avalanche's Zach Parise: Retiring at end of playoffs

    Parise said that Thursday's game versus Edmonton will be the last regular-season game in his career, Corey Masisak of The Denver Post reports.

    Parise hopes to win a Stanley Cup with the Avalanche to complete his NHL career. The winger inked a deal with Colorado in the middle of the season and had four goals and nine points in 29 contests. Parise played 19 seasons in the NHL and was one of the best players in the NHL while playing for the Islanders in 2008-09 and the following year. He has 433 goals and 455 assists in 1,253 career NHL games.

  • Avalanche's Nikolai Kovalenko: Clear to play

    Kovalenko (leg) will suit up for AHL Colorado in the team's game.

    Kovalenko was dealing with an injury when he was transferred from his KHL club to the Eagles in March. The 24-year-old winger, selected in the sixth round in 2018, is still likely to be a part-time NHLer at best in 2024-25.

  • Avalanche's Josh Manson: Picks up helper

    Manson recorded an assist in Sunday's 4-3 overtime defeat to Vegas.

    Manson continues to struggle to find the back of the net, as his goal drought has reached 15 games. During his slump, the veteran blueliner has generated four assists, 32 shots and 25 PIM. Given his limited offensive contributions, Manson is unlikely to offer much in the way of fantasy value in postseason contests.

  • Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Adds assist in loss

    MacKinnon had an assist during Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Golden Knights.

    With 51 goals and 138 points in 81 games, MacKinnon is undoubtedly a Hart Trophy candidate, though he trails Nikita Kucherov by three points in the Art Ross Trophy race. MacKinnon has six goals and 15 points in the last eight games heading into Thursday's regular-season finale against the Oilers.

  • Avalanche's Mikko Rantanen: Scores in OT loss

    Rantanen scored a goal on six shots in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to Vegas.

    Rantanen's up to 41 goals and 103 points through 79 games, ranking eighth in the league in points. His prolific pace has slowed down the stretch, though, as the winger has only two goals and seven points in his last nine outings. Rantanen will look to flip the switch in the playoffs after Thursday's regular-season finale versus the Oilers.

  • Avalanche's Cale Makar: Two points isn't enough

    Makar had a goal and an assist during Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Golden Knights.

    Sunday's production brings Makar to 21 goals and 89 points in 76 games. He's second among all defensemen in goals, points and assists. There aren't many defenders who have been more reliable than Makar, who is putting the finishing touches on a fourth straight campaign averaging a point per game or better.

  • Avalanche's Alexandar Georgiev: Suffers OT loss

    Georgiev stopped 26 of Vegas' 30 shots during Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss.

    Georgiev played well for the majority of the game, but Vegas scored three goals in the third before taking the OT win. His recent performances haven't been inspiring. Over the last six games, Georgiev has allowed six goals twice and four goals three times, causing him to be pulled twice. It will be hard for fantasy managers to trust him when the playoffs start.

  • Avalanche's Ross Colton: Opens scoring in OT loss

    Colton scored a goal during Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Golden Knights.

    Colton opened the scoring with his 17th goal of the season. The 27-year-old tied his career high of 39 points with that tally. Colton is providing depth scoring as the Avs brace for the postseason, but his production has come inconsistently in a middle-six role.

  • Avalanche's Miles Wood: Good to go Sunday

    Wood (lower body) is suiting up Sunday against Vegas, per the NHL's media site.

    Wood will return Sunday after a three-game absence. The 28-year-old forward has nine goals and 24 points through 72 games this season, though he's been held scoreless over his last six. Expect him to skate in a bottom-six role.

  • Avalanche's Justus Annunen: Needed in relief Saturday

    Annunen stopped eight of 11 shots after replacing Alexandar Georgiev late in the first period of Saturday's 7-0 loss to the Jets.

    The 24-year-old backup netminder didn't have much more success than Georgiev did as the Avs sleepwalked their way through the afternoon contest. Annunen has been playing better that Colorado's starter of late, though, going 4-2-0 in seven outings over the last month with a 2.36 GAA and .921 save percentage. Coach Jared Bednar could have a tough decision to make in the crease when the playoffs begin.

  • Avalanche's Alexandar Georgiev: Gets hook in rout

    Georgiev allowed four goals on 15 shots before being replaced by Justus Annunen late in the first period of Saturday's 7-0 loss to the Jets.

    The awful result was a team-wide effort by the Avalanche, and two of the goals against Georgiev came on Jets power plays while three of the four came from in close. Even so, the 28-year-old netminder has only one win in his last six outings, going 1-3-1 with a brutal 5.18 GAA and .848 save percentage. Colorado already has a playoff spot locked up, but the club's No. 1 goalie won't be taking much momentum into the postseason.

  • Avalanche's Samuel Girard: In concussion protocol

    Girard has been placed in concussion protocol after being injured in Saturday's matchup against Winnipeg, Ryan Boulding of NHL.com reports.

    Girard isn't likely to appear in the Avalanche's final two regular-season contests. If that ends up being the case, he will conclude the campaign with three goals, 18 points, 76 hits and 99 blocks in 59 outings. His status for the playoffs is unclear, but in the meantime, Caleb Jones will likely draw into the lineup Sunday versus Vegas.

  • Avalanche's Alexandar Georgiev: Will start Sunday

    Georgiev will be in goal Sunday on the road versus the Golden Knights, Ryan Boulding of NHL.com reports.

    Georgiev started Saturday, but he didn't make it through the first period versus the Jets, allowing four goals on 15 shots. He dropped to 38-18-4 on the year, and he's now allowed four or more goals in four of his last six outings. He'll have another tough test Sunday against the Golden Knights, who have scored 21 goals over their last five games despite winning just twice in that span.

  • Avalanche's Samuel Girard: Sustains upper-body injury

    Girard suffered an upper-body injury and won't return to Saturday's game against Winnipeg.

    Girard entered the contest with three goals, 18 points, 76 hits and 99 blocks in 58 appearances this campaign. If he's unable to play Sunday versus Vegas, Caleb Jones will likely draw into the lineup.

  • Avalanche's Mikko Rantanen: Good to play Saturday

    Rantanen (concussion) will draw back into the lineup Saturday versus Winnipeg.

    Rantanen, who has missed the past two games, has 40 goals and 102 points in 77 outings this season. He is projected to skate on the second line alongside Valeri Nichushkin and Casey Mittelstadt, which is a departure from his standard role on the top unit with Nathan MacKinnon. The Avalanche's new assignment for 27-year-old Rantanen likely reflects a desire to balance out their offense before the postseason.

  • Avalanche's Alexandar Georgiev: Facing Winnipeg

    Georgiev will protect the home net Saturday versus the Jets, per Kyle Fredrickson of The Denver Gazette.

    Georgiev is coming off a 20-save effort in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Minnesota. He has a 38-17-4 record this campaign with a 2.95 GAA and an .899 save percentage across 61 appearances. Winnipeg sits 16th in the league this season with 3.09 goals per contest.
