Nathan MacKinnon scratched from Avs-Ducks game with upper-body injury

Published

Bad news: After taking part in the Avs’ morning skate and nothing seeming amiss, Nathan MacKinnon is a late scratch for the game tonight against the Anaheim Ducks. The team said he has an “upper-body” injury.

MacKinnon’s spot in the lineup was taken by Kiefer Sherwood.

MacKinnon, who took a hit to the head in Wednesday’s game in San Jose, took part in a full morning practice and the team gave no indication anything was wrong afterward. But, here we are. The biggest worry, of course, is that MacKinnon developed concussion symptoms. Those, as we know, can last for a long time.

We’ll give updates as they happen.

This is the first game MacKinnon will miss this season. He leads the team with 22 points.
