Nathan Mackinnon logs two points

Nathan Mackinnon scored his first goal of the 2019/20 campaign on Thursday night's home victory over the visiting Boston Bruins. He registered two points and three shots through 19:02 of ice time.

Fantasy Impact: It was only a matter of time before the Avs star center buried one. This wasn't exactly pretty as Gabriel Landeskog rang one off the post which came back to and open Mackinnon while on the power-play. But fantasy owners care not for how the points are racked up. The assist was his fourth of the year and expect the production to carry on at a high clip. If there were anything to complain about. Those who value face-off losses/percentage categories may take a slight hit as his career average hangs around 46.2%

Nathan Mackinnon contributed an assist in Colorado's 5-3 home victory over the Calgary Flames on Thursday night. He recorded one point, two blocks and a team high seven shots.

Fantasy Impact: Mackinnon's assist was the primary one on Mikko Rantanen's power play goal. He took a point pass from young defender Cale Makar and threaded it through four Calgary Flames' to Rantanen's stick, to which he buried. Look for Mackinnon and Colorado's top line to produce plenty of points, whether it be on the PP or regular strength. The Avs play their next three games at home.

Colorado's star Nathan MacKinnon was held without a point for the third straight game in this series against the Sharks.

Fantasy Impact: After scoring goals in three straight games against the Sharks earlier in the series, the exact opposite occurred during the final three games of round two. MacKinnon was held in check by San Jose's defense which most likely played a huge factor in Colorado losing to San Jose in the Western Conference Semi Finals. He will end the 2019 post-season with six goals, seven assists, and a minus-four rating through 12 games played.

Nathan Mackinnon scored midway through the second period of Colorado’s 3-0 win over San Jose in Game 4 on Thursday. The win evened the series heading into Game 5 on Saturday. MacKinnon added seven shots-on-goal and was a plus-one for the contest.

Fantasy Impact: MacKinnon has been electric this postseason, with six goals, seven assists, and 13 points through nine games, good for a first-place tie in playoff points with teammate Mikko Rantanen. The Avalanche remain a top-heavy roster, but when their stars are on their game, expect some real fireworks.

Nathan MacKinnon scored a goal for the Avalanche with almost four minutes remaining in the second period of Game Three Tuesday, to cut San Jose's lead in half to 2-1.

Fantasy Impact: MacKinnon has played up to expectations this post-season as he has scored five goals and seven assists so far. With his team down two games to one in this series, MacKinnon will have to try and lead Colorado to victory in a must-win Game Four against the Sharks Thursday night.

Nathan MacKinnon scored a goal and added an assist for Colorado during the team’s 4-3 win over San Jose on Sunday. He was a plus-two for the game with a whopping seven shots-on-goal.

Fantasy Impact: MacKinnon now has four goals and seven assists through seven games played this postseason. The forward enjoyed another spectacular season in 2018-2019, falling one point shy of 100 points for the year. MacKinnon will again be worthy of a first-round selection in fantasy drafts next season, as he possesses one of the most dynamic skill sets in the NHL and should continue to center one of the most explosive lines in the league.

Nathan MacKinnon scored a pair of power-play goals and dished out an assist as well to win Game Three 6-2 against the Flames.

Fantasy Impact: MacKinnon had an impressive game Monday night as he accounted for two out of the six goals scored by the Avalanche. He will look to continue producing at a dangerous level in order to overwhelm Calgary's defense.

Nathan Mackinnon potted the 40th goal of his 2018/19 campaign, initiating the first of six unanswered goals helping Colorado down the visiting Edmonton Oilers for a huge two points on Tuesday night. He finished the game with one point, a plus-1 rating and four shots on goal.

Fantasy Impact: Mackinnon burned between three of the Oilers defenders at the blue line while gaining an open lane straight to the net and fired it past Koskinen on the glove side. It was all roses after that as the Avs poured on the offense and found themselves a clutch two points to help keep distance from the Arizona Coyotes. With both teams having two games left, and a four point gap, the Avs need a single point or the Coyotes to lose out to find the post-season.

Nathan Mackinnon got the scoring started in a huge playoff-positioning, 3-2 shoot-out win over the visiting Arizona Coyotes on Friday night. He finished the game with a point, a minus-1 rating, two penalty minutes, four shots, and one hit.

Fantasy Impact: The goal was a change-up that he took from Gabriel Landeskog. He didn't quite get anything on it but managed to float it over the blocker of Darcy Kuemper. The more notable goal however, was in the shootout where we almost dangled the camera man out his shoes. The goal brings him one shy of 40 on the season and 95 points total. He's a huge reason for the Avs success so far.

Nathan Mackinnon scored the third of three goals the Avs hung on the visiting New Jersey Devils, beating them 3-0 Sunday afternoon. He stuffed the stat sheet providing a goal, an assist, a plus-2 rating, two penalty minutes, a team-high six shots, three hits and two blocks.

Fantasy Impact: Mackinnon's goal was an easy one as he had the puck fed up to him along the boards. He burned past the Devils' last line of defense and floated it in. The more impressive of the two points was his assist on Tyson Barrie's goal. He single handedly dangled around three New Jersey defenders, and left a tater teed up for Barrie to shoot home. The points bring him up to 37 goals and 54 assists on the season and his six points off his career best with 11 games remaining. The Avalanche are in wildcard contention so there's no reason to think he will take it easy in the fantasy home stretch.

Fantasy Impact: The goal was a laser one-timer as Colin Wilson did a great job of keeping the puck in and Sven Andrighetto fed him a pass which he teed up and blasted past Jakob Markstrom. The Avs are finding their stride again and just in time for both real and fantasy playoffs. He's up to 81 points with 18 games remaining to best his career high of 97 he set last year.

Nathan Mackinnon potted his 30th goal on the season in Wednesday nights 7-1 home victory over the Winnipeg Jets. He finished the game with a goal, an even rating, five shots, one hit and one block.

Fantasy Impact: Mackinnon's goal came on the power play where he one-timed a shot passed Connor Hellebuyck. That's his first goal since February 10th and it's worth noting that Mackinnon did not look impressed when the puck went in the net. Possibly because he expects more from himself and his team, and that the Avs have been getting handled recently. This, however could mark a turn around point for him and the squad as they have beat the Jets in their last two matches, and this one was handily. Mackinnon is up to 30 goals and 77 points.

Nathan Mackinnon provides helper

Fri, Feb 15th 11:24am EST
By Jeremy Farr

Nathan Mackinnon tallied the primary assist to Gabriel Landeskog on Thursday night helping the Avalanche defeat the Jets 4-1. He totalled a plus-1 rating, a team-high seven shots and one hit.

Fantasy Impact: It was a nice two man drop pass as Mikko Rantanen left it for Mackinnon, then he promptly dropped it for Landeskog which gave him a clear path in for the goal. Mackinnon (along with the rest of the team) have not being playing good hockey as of late. There has been a lofty narrative due to the hot start they got out to but the numbers have been normalizing and it's showing on the score sheet. The win puts an end to the Avs eight game losing streak. Despite the tough times, he is still a must start C and should be fired up when they play. He's up to 29 goals and 46 assists this year.

Nathan Mackinnon produced an assist in Colorados 6-3 home loss at the hands of the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday night. He finished the game with a minus-2 rating and two shots through 21:52 of TOI.

Fantasy Impact: Yikes. The Avalanche gave up three goals in the third period to the opposition and the late surge was good enough to put them away. Coach Jared Bednar decided to break up the top line of Gabriel Landeskog, Nathan Mackinnon and Mikko Rantanen after the All-star break to see if a shake up would help them but it didn't and he reset the lines immediately. Owners shouldn't worry about the star center as he will see ample opportunity to score points with the top line restored but the Avs need to figure out a few glaring problems (defense, line depth and arguably goaltending) if they want to stay in contention. Mackinnon has a stout 72 points through 52 games this year.

Nathan Mackinnon and the Avs came to play on Saturday afternoon, handing the visiting L.A. Kings a 7-1 defeat. He tallied two points, a plus-1 rating, and two shots.

Fantasy Impact: Both of his assists came on the powerplay and were both sent to linemates Gabriel Landeskog and Mikko Rantanen. The helpers bring him up to 43 on the season and 70 points through 48 games. The impressive first line of Colorado is putting up excellent numbers for their fantasy managers and better be starting if you're in it to win it.

Nathan Mackinnon scored a goal in Wednesday nights 5-3 road loss to the Calgary Flames. He ended the game with a point, a plus-2 rating and six shots.

Fantasy Impact: The goal extends Mackinnons point streak to eight games and reminds fantasy players why he is must start at the "C" position. Calgary made and errant pass in their own end which Mikko Rantanen collected, dished to Gabriel Landeskog and set up a one timer that Mackinnon ripped past Dave Rittich for goal number 26. He's up to 66 points on the season.

Nathan Mackinnon scored and tallied two assists all on the powerplay as the Avalanche snapped their losing streak by beating the Rangers 6-1 at home. He finished the night with three points, a plus-1 rating, eight shots and one hit.

Fantasy Impact: The Rangers were playing undisciplined hockey on Friday night. Four Avs players found themselves in double digit power play time and Mackinnon capitalized. He took a pass, gave the puck a quick deke and roofed it on back up goalie Alexandar Georgiev. He's now up to 25 goals and 38 assists on the season and must be started when the Avs take the ice.

Nathan Mackinnon found the scoresheet on Wednesday night but was for naught as the Avalanche fell to the visiting San Jose Sharks 5-4. He finished the game with one point, a plus-1 rating, a team-high 5 SOG and two blocks through 23:19 minutes on the ice.

Fantasy Impact: Mackinnon scooped up a neutral zone turnover and started streaking up the middle towards the net. He attempted to split the defense and almost did but drew a penalty. He was able to get to the puck first however, and found a trailing Matt Calvert who proceeded to put it past Martin Jones. He now has five points in his last five games and hasn't been held off the score sheet since December 21st. He's up to 24 goals and 60 points at the seasons halfway mark.

Nathan Mackinnon provided two assists in Colorados 2-1 home victory versus the Montreal Canadiens. He finished the game with two points, a plus-2 rating, two shots, one hit and one block.

Fantasy Impact: The top line continues to produce as both goals were scored and assisted by them. The two assists carries Mackinnons point streak to seven games. He's potted 12 points since December 6th and is one of three main reasons why the Avalanche are hovering around the top of the conference. He moves to 21 goals and 55 points through 35 games.

Nathan Mackinnon notched one point in Friday nights 4-3 overtime loss to the St. Louis Blues. He posted one point, a minus-2 rating, six shots and one block through 25:47 of ice time.

Fantasy Impact: A modest night on the stat sheet for Mackinnon considering he had six shots but a point is a point and he extends his streak to four games. It's worth noting that Colorado's first line accounted for 20 of the 42 shots on net so owners need not worry in the slightest. The Avs head home for a tilt against the Dallas Stars whom they beat 3-2 on November 24th.

Nathan Mackinnon set up a pair of goals but in a losing effort on Tuesday night as the Avalanche fell to the visiting Edmonton Oilers 6-4. He registered two points, a plus-1 rating, four penalty minutes, five shots and two hits through 23:41 minutes of ice time.

Fantasy Impact: Both of his assists were secondary in this one but with the Avs top line playing the way they are, if either Mackinnon, Gabriel Landeskog or Mikko Rantanen get a point, the other two will as well. Mackinnon has only been held off the score sheet twice since November 18th and is must-start at the center position. The two assists bring him up to 47 points through 31 games this year. Get it into ya.

Nathan MacKinnon picked up an assist in a win against Florida on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: MacKinnon's assist was his 25th of the season and his 44th point. He's second in the entire NHL in points as he's only behind his teammate in Mikko Rantanen. He remains an elite fantasy player.

Nathan Mackinnon logged a goal and three assists in Colorados 6-3 win over the Penguins on Wednesday night. He finished the game plus-2, with two shots and one hit.

Fantasy Impact: The Avalanche have now won six in a row and Mackinnons performance to date is one of three big reasons why. The goal did come on the open net but the assists did not. Mackinnon now was 23 points since Nov 2nd. Him and Mikko Rantanen are dominating and there's no reason to think they'll slow down anytime soon.

Nathan Mackinnon produced two points on Saturday night helping defeat the Dallas Stars 3-2. He finished the night with two points, a plus-1 rating and one hit through 22:23 of ice time.

Fantasy Impact: The points bring the Cole Harbour native to 35 on the season and puts him in second (three behind Mikko Rantanen). Mackinnon was fading away on his off hand at the bottom of the circle while Rantanen took a hit, then rolled out in front and fed him a one-timer where he found the short side top shelf. If the Avs are playing, you're starting Mackinnon.

Fantasy Impact: Both of Mackinnons points came on the powerplay and helped contribute to the 75% effectiveness with the Avs going 3/4 on the man advantage. The goal puts Mackinnon to 14 on the year 31 points in total. He's well on his way to another dominant season and should always be one of your starting centers.

Nathan Mackinnon did his part in the Avs 6-3 victory over the Bruins on Wednesday night. He finished the game with one goal, one assist, a plus-1 rating and two shots.

Fantasy Impact: The top line for the Avs combined for six points in this bout and secured two in a row. Mackinnon darted up the right side while Mikko Rantanen made some nice moves to break out, carry the puck to the high slot, and feed him in close for a quick shot over Jaroslav Halak's glove on the short side. This performance brings him up to 11 goals and 13 assists so far this season. Make sure he's fired up while the Avalanche are on the ice.

Fantasy Impact: Mackinnon was effective at finding his teammates in the open and was able to set up both Mikko Rantanen and Tyson Barrie's goals. He has collected 11 goals and 13 assists to date and should easily be one of your starting centers if he's on your roster.

Nathan Mackinnon put an assist on the scoresheet on Wednesday night in a losing effort as the Avs fell at home to the Predators 4-1.

Fantasy Impact: The Avalanche find themselves in a four game slide after they came out of the gates firing at the beginning of the season. The fact that they have allowed 20 goals against in that span is a good tell as to why they're getting beat. It appears that teams have keyed in on the top unit and it's no secret whom they have to defend hardest against. That being said, Mackinnon is still an excellent fantasy centre option and should be started every night.

The runner up for the Hart trophy last season is poised for an even bigger season this year with the improvement shown by linemate Mikko Rantanen. The center man will continue to be a top five player in fantasy this season while healthy.

Nathan Mackinnon had his franchise record setting goal streak snapped on Thursday but still contributed greatly with three assists helping Colorado topple New Jersey 5-3. He finished the game with plus-2, with two penalties, and five shots on goal.

Fantasy Impact: Even with the goal streak snapped, Mackinnon was setting up Gabriel Landeskog all night and helped him get a hat trick. Mackinnon, and their top line for that matter has been producing for the Avs and should provide useful lines for fantasy owners whenever they're on the ice and carry through the season as a top ten center, if not top five.

Nathan Mackinnon set a new Avalanche record on Tuesday night but in a losing cause as they fell to the Rangers 3-2 in a shootout.

The whole forward line got a point on the play and the tally brings Mackinnon up to seven goals on the year so far. We don't expect him to keep this pace but he's firing out of the gates and is a great sign for things to come for fantasy owners.

While being assisted by linemate Mikko Rantanen, Mackinnon drafted into the slot behind Gabriel Landeskog and ripped a shot between his legs nailing the top shelf to get the Avs on the board. If you own Mackinnon make sure he's ready to roll as one of your starting centres.

Nathan Mackinnon gathered two points helping the Avalanche down the Flyers 5-2 for their second victory of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Mackinnon has came out of the gates in the same form he did last year. Skating hard, shooting fast and can seemingly make plays out of nothing. It's only game two and he already has 15 shots on goal. Expect him to perform like the first round pick he was drafted as.

Fantasy Impact: Mackinnon was streaking hard to the net and took a nice pass from Mikko Rantanen of which he buried behind Devin Dubnyk. The top line for the Avs are no strangers to putting pucks in the net so look Mckinnon, Rantanen and Landeskog to produce regularly for fantasy owners.

Nathan MacKinnon scored two power-play goals and had an assist during Colorado's 5-1 preseason win versus Minnesota. He had a total of three shots on goal in 17:44 minutes of ice time.

Fantasy Impact: After four seasons and 75 career NHL goals, MacKinnon is still only 22 years old. He will be a nice point producer once again hovering around the 20 goal mark but he has only had once season back in 2013-2014 where he finished with a plus rating at plus-20. Drafting Colorado players this season is a risky move unless you can pair them with someone with a high enough rating to cover them.
