He'll move in and out of the lineup depending on matchups or positional need and should accumulate a lot of hits -- he administered 105 body checks over 58 games while averaging 7:24 TOI last season.... See Less Avalanche's Ben Meyers: Records two hits in win Meyers had two hits over 9:48 of ice time in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Blackhawks. Meyers began the season on the fourth line and is not expected to be an impact player for the Avalanche.
See Less Avalanche's Alexandar Georgiev: Cruises to win in Avs debut Georgiev made 15 saves in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Blackhawks. Georgiev wasn't at his best in his Avalanche debut, but he didn't need to be, as Colorado dominated play throughout and finished with a 35-17 edge in shots en route to a comfortable victory. The offseason acquisition will get a chance to establish himself as the starter in Colorado after being blocked by Igor Shesterkin on the Rangers, but Georgiev still needs to prove that he's starter material to hold off Pavel Francouz for playing time. If he can do so, Colorado's skilled group of skaters should carry Georgiev to plenty more easy wins.... See Less Avalanche's Alexandar Georgiev: Facing Chicago Oct 12, 2022 Georgiev will protect the home goal during Wednesday's game versus the Blackhawks, NHL.
Newhook, who won just 34. 7 percent of his faceoff draws in 2021-22, won two of seven at the dot Wednesday. This will be a big year for the 21-year-old, who was drafted 16th overall in 2019. He's stepping into a prominent top-six role on a championship caliber team after serving on the third line last season.
MacKinnon had two missed shots in addition to his game-high six shots, as he generated plenty of chances but couldn't quite manage to put one past Petr Mrazek. Once the superstar center finds the range with his shot, he'll be even more dangerous, and MacKinnon's superb playmaking will keep him afloat until then.... See Less Avalanche's Mikko Rantanen: Starts season with four-point night Rantanen dished out four power-play assists in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Blackhawks.
Rantanen helped set up Valeri Nichushkin in the first and third periods, and he assisted on two Artturi Lehkonen goals in the second. Thirty-five of Rantanen's career-high 92 points last season came on the power play, and Colorado's top man-advantage unit is already in midseason form based on this performance.... See Less Avalanche's Valeri Nichushkin: Pots pair on power play Nichushkin scored two power-play goals on five shots in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Blackhawks. Nichushkin used his 6-foot-4, 210-pound frame to carve out space in front on the man advantage. With the likes of Cale Makar and Mikko Rantanen setting him up, Nichushkin's net-front presence helped him score two of the four goals racked up by Colorado's No.
The defenseman is coming off a career season, having posted 57 points in 66 games. In addition to his status on the top blueline pair with Cale Makar, Toews also runs with the second power-play unit, getting 2:10 TOI on the man advantage.... See Less Avalanche's Andrew Cogliano: Nets first goal Cogliano scored a goal on four shots over 13:51 of ice time in Wednesday's 5-2 win over Chicago. Cogliano got the Avalanche on the board first when he redirected a Nathan MacKinnon shot in the first period. Acquired at the trade deadline last season and re-signed during the summer, Cogliano's a well-respected presence and should see regular minutes on the third line and penalty-kill unit. The 35-year-old forward has not posted double-digit goals since 2017 but could see an uptick in scoring with a powerful team in Denver....
See Less Avalanche's Cale Makar: Two points in season opener Makar dished out two assists while adding four shots and a blocked shot in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Blackhawks. Makar helped out on two of Colorado's four power-play goals as the reigning champs cruised to victory after raising their Stanley Cup championship banner to the rafters. The 23-year-old defenseman was arguably the most important piece of that championship run, capturing the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP, and Makar's best hockey may yet lie ahead of him.... See Less Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Two helpers after Avs raise banner MacKinnon dished out two assists - one on the power play - to go with six shots in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Blackhawks.
His role as a regular could be in jeopardy when Darren Helm (undisclosed) and Gabriel Landeskog (lower body) return to the lineup. The Avs may also use Anton Blidh on the fourth line when a more physical presence is preferred.... See Less Avalanche's Alex Newhook: Replaces Kadri on second line Newhook had one shot and two hits over 13:43 of ice time in Wednesday's 5-2 win over Chicago. Newhook opened the season as the second-line center, a role that was filled by the very productive Nazem Kadri on last season's Stanley Cup championship squad. He also skated on the second power-play unit.

In addition to skating on the top line with Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen at even strength, Lehkonen also played on the top power-play unit. The latter assignment led to all of his production in this one, as Lehkonen assisted on Valeri Nichuskin's first-period power-play goal before potting two of his own in the second. With this effort, Lehkonen equaled his power-play goal total from last season, which came in 74 games split between Colorado and Montreal....
com reports. Georgiev was excellent in his final taste of preseason action last Wednesday against the Stars, turning aside 32 of 33 shots en route to a 2-1 win. The 26-year-old netminder will try to secure his first victory as a member of the Avalanche in a favorable home matchup with a Chicago team that averaged just 2. 60 goals per game last campaign, 29th in the NHL.... See Less Avalanche's Jacob MacDonald: Skates in non-contact jersey MacDonald (undisclosed) skated Wednesday while wearing a non-contact jersey, per Peter Baugh of The Athletic. The fact that MacDonald is skating is encouraging, but of course if he's not taking contact yet, then he shouldn't be expected to play Wednesday against Chicago.

1 power-play unit. Only five of Nichushkin's career-high 25 goals last season came on the power play, so Nichushkin has a clear path to even more production in the short term, though Gabriel Landeskog's eventual return from a lower-body injury will likely knock either Nichushkin or Arturri Lehkonen -- who scored Colorado's other two power-play goals Wednesday -- off the top man-advantage unit....
