Avalanche Mega Off-Day Notebook: Forwards mostly healthy again, and Nathan MacKinnon on eating right



Nathan MacKinnon

Sorry there was a blank spot in yesterday’s coverage. It was a planes, trains and automobiles kind of Monday for me, so I didn’t make it to Denver until this morning, after a night in Orlando, Fla., where I checked in to a fleabag hotel at 1 a.m. and was back up and at ’em, fresh as a daisy, at 4:30 a.m. for a 6 a.m. flight. The flight started in Burlington, Vt. (don’t ask).

I was at practice today, though, and will run down a list of items, including:

  • Thirteen seconds of footage of Cale Makar skating around in a pumpkin jersey, before regular practice. He did not skate with teammates for the practice, and won’t play Wednesday against the Philadelphia Flyers. But Jared Bednar said he has been feeling better every day since suffering that upper-body injury Saturday night in Boston.
