LW - COL
J.T. Compher scored the Avs first goal in a 6-2 loss to the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday. He posted a goal, a minus-1 rating and four shots.
Compher's goal came on a fast break out. Girard sent the puck up to Devon Toews who set him up in the middle for a shot that found the back of the net. It's his second of the season and he doesn't carry much fantasy relevance.
J.T. Compher scored his second goal of the 2020 post season which put the Avalanche up by two vs. the Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday.
Compher was hovering around the front of the net while there was a debacle of players. The puck squirted loose and he made a little drag to the back hand to find the back of the net. The goal came ten seconds after Nazem Kadri scored the first goal which were not coming easy against Darcy Kuemper. He's up to two goals and three points in the playoffs so far.
J.T. Compher tipped in the game-winning goal in Wednesday night's 3-2 overtime victory over the visiting New York Rangers. He finished the game with one point, a minus-1 rating and two shots.
The goal came off of a Cale Makar point shot. He was crossing the middle at just the right time as you could see Gerogiev reach to catch the shot. He trailed his stick behind him and just tipped it over the glove and in. That was Compher's 11th of the season and has 31 points total.
J.T. Compher chipped in two assists in Colorado's 7-3 road win over the Vegas Golden Knights on Monday. He finished the game with two points, a plus-1 rating, one shot, one hit and one block.
Compher provided the primary assists for Bellemare and Nieto that got the Avs two markers early. The one assist came on the penalty kill as he sprung Matt Nieto after breaking up the play in the defensive zone. That brings Compher up to three goals and 19 points at the Christmas break.
J.T. Compher and the Colorado Avalanche have avoided arbitration and agreed to terms on a four-year deal that will pay the winger $14 million.
Compher is coming off of a career-best season in what was his second "full" year in the NHL. He tallied 16 goals and 16 assists for 32 points in 66 games. Unfortunately, the 24-year-old has yet to crack the 70 game mark in his young career, having dealt with injuries - including a concussion - in the past. In spite of this, the Avalanche clearly still believe in his abilities by signing him to this deal. But from a fantasy perspective, there's better options out there.
