Avalanche Player Grades: Back On Track (+)



Photos by Lars Mahrendorf

The Colorado Avalanche took on the Columbus Blue Jackets in the second half of the Global Series in Finland. The were looking to get back on track and get the four points as they did. Here are my player grades for the game on Saturday:

Nathan MacKinnon (A): Started a breakout that led to a pass to Artturi Lehkonen and the first goal of the night. Every breakout that happened for the Avalanche seemed to be led by MacKinnon today. In just under 20 minutes, he had three assists, four shots and one hit. MacKinnon was not great in the dot, however, winning only one of 10 faceoffs.
