Evan Rodrigues scored the opening goal for the Avalanche in a losing effort on Friday as they fell to the visiting Seattle Kraken 3-2. He tallied a goal, an even-rating, two shots and a hit.
The goal came after the red-hot Valeri Nichushkin displayed some patience and waited for E-Rod to drift open in front of the net. He made no mistake on the one-timer for his first while dawning the Avalanche uniform. He's worth monitoring in fantasy leagues due to the tremendous scoring upside that comes with Colorado.
