EDMONTON, ALBERTA – Just got more bad news where at Rogers Place. Joonas Donskoi has been deemed “unfit to play” in Game 3 for the Avalanche.
As I type this, it’ll be either Logan O’Connor or Sheldon Dries in the lineup as his replacement. Both were in the Avalanche warmup, while Donskoi was not.
Donskoi missed a game earlier in the postseason with an undisclosed ailment. It’s another blow to a suddenly-thinning Avalanche lineup. The Avs were entering Game 3 already without Erik Johnson, Philipp Grubauer and Matt Calvert.
We all know this as Avalanche watchers: when it comes to injuries, when it rains it pours.
