NHL News: Avalanche star Nathan MacKinnon likely to miss month

Date:


Colorado Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon is expected to be sidelined for around four weeks due to an upper-body injury, the team announced Tuesday.

The veteran All-Star left the ice during the first period of Colorado’s 5-3 road loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday.

“The fact he’s leaving early in the game is not a good sign,” Avalanche coach Jared Bednar told Altitude Sports on Tuesday morning. “We know he’s gonna miss some time.”

MacKinnon, 27, appeared to be in discomfort after blocking a shot and taking a hit along the boards from Flyers forward Scott Laughton.

MacKinnon leads Colorado with 34 points (eight goals, league-leading 26 assists) through 23 games this season, his 10th campaign with the Avalanche.

He has posted 682 points (250 goals, 432 assists) in 661 games since Colorado drafted him No. 1 overall in 2013.
