Nathan Mackinnon racked up 20 goals and 65 points in the shortened 2021 season. Fantasy managers were probably expecting a little more production in the goals department, but he delivered fantasy results at more than a point-per-game and was a big contributor in powerplay points. Aside from his point totals he heads into the playoffs with a plus-22, 37 PIM, 25 powerplay points, 206 shots, 38 hits and 15 blocks. Look for him to be going in the top five next year.
Check back shortly for the fantasy impact.
Nathan Mackinnon didn't suit up in Colorado's 3-2 win over the L.A. Kings. It's the second game in a row he has been sidelined due to a lower-body injury.
Very unfortunate for fantasy managers as those were the last two games of the season in most leagues. Losing your first-rounder in two tasty matchups doesn't help much. Regardless. Don't be surprised if Mackinnon doesn't see the ice again until the playoffs.
Nathan Mackinnon opened the scoring for Colorado in their 4-3 home victory over the visiting San Jose Sharks. He finished the game with a goal, an assist, a plus-2 rating, and a team-high nine shots on goal.
Mackinnon's goal didn't get much easier as Connor Timmins fed him a pass right on the door step to which he redirected in. Later in the game, Samuel Girard was bodied into the boards awkwardly behind the net by Kevin Lebanc and Mackinnon took exception to it. They each landed a couple of punches and Mackinnon wrestled him to the ground in the end. He's up to 20 goals and 63 points this year.
Nathan Mackinnon registered three assists in Thursday's 4-2 road win over the St. Louis Blues. He finished the game with three points, a plus-3 rating, five shots and one hit.
Mackinnon was up to his usual ways on the ice. Demanding coverage and getting his teammates open, making crisp passes for goals, and playing solid two-way hockey. He now has 19 points in his last twelve games which is a big reason the Avalanche are 18-1-2 in their last 21 games. If fantasy owners needed something to gripe about they would probably say they expected more goals from their first round pick but few will argue that his 17 goals, 38 assists, plus-28, 28 PIMs, 22 powerplay points, 169 shots, 33 hits and 14 blocks haven't been solid for them this year. Look for him and the Avalanche to be back on the ice Saturday the 24th in St. Louis.
Nathan Mackinnon tallied an assist in Colorado's 4-3 road victory over the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday. He finished the game with a point, a plus1 rating, six shots and one hit.
After a "slow" start to the season, Mackinnon and the Avalanche are in full stride. They have lost two games dating back to March 25th and are ranked top three in many offensive and defensive categories. Mackinnon continues to be a key piece in their success and must be started when the Avs play. He's up to 17 goals and 53 points.
