Nathan MacKinnon out three weeks

Nathan MacKinnon? Out roughly three weeks, coach Jared Bednar said today.

Oh, and Sam Girard is now questionable for tomorrow’s game with Vancouver too, Bednar added. Some kind of possible new injury.

It is starting to feel like this season might have a curse on it. Just too many sudden, shocking injuries to their best players. But, it is what it is.

Nathan MacKinnon apparently suffered the injury Saturday in Columbus. It’s a lower-body injury, one that required “tests” to diagnose. I’m not going to speculate what it is, because anytime I do, it’s wrong.

J.T. Compher is your new No. 1 center for now. Valeri Nichushkin will be back tomorrow at least, and skate at second-line left wing with Nazem Kadri and Andre Burakovsky. Cale Makar will return tomorrow.

So, there’s some good news, Avs fans.
