It’s a Colorado Avalanche gameday!

Nathan MacKinnon is back! It was presumed that the Colorado Avalanche star would be out for at least a little while with an injured hand, but he took his quinoa milkshake and got right back to it. Now he’s facing a San Jose Sharks team that isn’t that good, so maybe it’s the perfect opportunity to get back to it.

Projected Lineup

Valeri Nichushkin - Nathan MacKinnon - Mikko Rantanen
Artturi Lehkonen - Nazem Kadri - Andre Burakovsky
Alex Newhook - Nico Sturm - JT Compher
Andrew Cogliano - Darren Helm - Logan O’Connor

Devon Toews - Cale Makar
Jack Johnson - Josh Manson
Kurtis MacDermid - Erik Johnson

Darcy Kuemper had the last two starts, so it’s Pavel Francouz’s time to shine.
